Oh For Goodness Sake!

The tech news is literally whipping itself into a foamy frothy santorum today over the RUMOR that the iPhone 7 will do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack.

OMG! This is worse that a nuclear attack! According to some of the moronic pundits.


So you’re going to have to buy an adapter or pay for headphones that have an adapter or special connector? That’s got your panties in a twist? Big Deal!

A few thoughts:

It’s a rumor, that means it may or may not be true.

When was the last time you really used that 3.5mm port? Is it going to be that big a loss?

With Bluetooth headsets becoming more common, packing all day battery life, and audio quality that rivals all but the highest end headsets, is this really gonna bring your world to a crashing end?

Given that the current iPhone 6s boasts a water resistance that borders on waterproof doesn’t it make sense that apple is going to minimize the number of openings in the phone?

After all you don’t have to seal what you never opened in the first place.

Personally I’d take waterproof and a bigger battery over a 3.5mm headphone jack I rarely use. I’m more concerned about the rumored thinning of the iPhone itself. I happen to have an iPhone 5s. I like the size, I like the shape, and the edges. I like it’s gripability.

I’m not overly enamoured of the iPhone 6 shape and rounded edges, I think it’s harder to hold onto, and knowing me, I’m for more likely to have the thing go crashing to the floor, no doubt after a really humorous juggling act.

Making the phone thinner is probably not going to help me out.

That being said, I’ll patiently wait for the iPhone 7 “reveal” in 2016 because until you actually see the product, there’s no need to freak out about it.

I don’t know who Dan Savage is having sex with… But if santorum is common in his life, he needs to find another partner or learn better hygiene.

Yeah you’re never going to wash these images out of your brain.

Slave! To my bed, bring the lube!
