OK, now let's figure out how to make that work.... Given the need for frequent recharging, the charging case was critical.
Frequent recharging is relative. For ultra portables, 5 hours of music playback is good. When launched two years ago I’m not aware of wireless buds that did better.
I doubt anyone would disagree that the charging case was needed and a very very important part of the AirPod experience and adoption. Without the charging case, AirPods would not have been nearly as successful.

Aren't they the cut to custom width type of blinds? On an inside mount that would be important, on an outside mount not so much.
Kwikset Premis Touchscreen Smart Lock, Works with Apple HomeKit via Apple HomePod or Apple TVWorks like a champ. Have had it for just about a year now. "Hey Siri, unlock my front door." on my Apple Watch. Via HomeKit can also see the status of locked or unlocked as well as on the lock specific Kwikset app. Can configure keypad codes and other things on the Kwikset app too such as viewing lock activity and setting up users who have access only during certain times etc. It adds an additional layer of security since if you use keypad codes for each person it tells you who unlocked it as well when etc in the lock activity list. Very happy with it. 5 stars.

Apple also compensated Xerox PARC with a pre-IPO Apple stock deal. Stealing? Not even close to that old myth.
