When some idiot decided that I needed to see 15 photos that he sent to ALL of his friends...

It's not a great idea to have a Laptop that you won't be able to make your Powerpoint presentations on
I think laptops that you can't make PowerPoint presentations on would be great. I wish everyone had one.
And then there's HDMI. Apple has always removed ports designed for computer video when newer ports come out, under the assumption that old monitors will get replaced with newer monitors with the new ports. The problem comes when TV is factored in. HDMI is a shared standard used by television sets, Blu-Ray players, etc. None of that gear will benefit from newer standards, and worse, has a much longer service life (decades) than computer monitors. Hotel room TVs will likely have HDMI ports in twenty years. So basically by removing the port, Apple is saying that they don't think most users need to connect their computer to anything except in their homes. Worse, most users who are impacted by this won't even know that they're going to be impacted. If connecting their computer to a TV is something you do every day, you'll have the adapter. Most people who are affected, however, are folks who suddenly decide to stay in the hotel and watch something on Netflix. Those folks won't even own the adapter, much less have it with them. And when they realize that they have to drive three hours to an Apple store to get a special adapter, it will sour their perception of Apple's product line.
Previous Macbooks had HDMI ports? I was sure they had mini-displayport (ports). Which means folks with new Macbooks are carrying USB-C(Thunderbolt) to HDMI adapters/cables, while folks with old Macbooks continue to carry mini displayport(Thunderbolt) to HDMI adapters/cables.
That would seem to me to be WELL ROUNDED!
Well, at least their eyes are.
I, Larry Ellison, will eliminate all humans in a week!
This one I believe.
I briefly wondered if my Sprngs would work with the AirPods, but then I realized there is no way I am spending $159 on earbuds.
