This is tiresome.
I get this nonsense whenever a major brand decides to ditch a technology.
Normally Apple has been the first, however other follow suite after people realize it isn't that big of a deal.
1. Apple is giving with their phone a converter.
2. Most of the time when people get a second hand device they will get wireless.
I am not trying to sound like an apple apologist but really is the headphone jack that big of a deal?
Or are you angry that the iPhone doesn't have a 25 pin Parallel port so you can connect your old Dot Matrix Printer?
