Someone would probably like to charge even toilet paper if there was such an option...
I need a jack to use my credit card reader for clients
@g-m-f Finally, thank you!
@g-m-f I agree, but everything else in the phone is digital.
Well there is this thing. Sound is analog. And the data we have is digital.
So we DO need a system that converts the digital magic into analog smoke to hear (Google DAC)
Now whatever jackless technology it is. Ultimately you need a DAC in there.
So why not put those inside mobile directly ?
And just have the speakers out? (Saves me money if I have to buy a new headphone because I lost old or broke it then I can get shit sounding headphones that just does the job for like 1$).
Jack is there to stay. Something old doesn't directly mean it is wrong.
@g-m-f please tell me if the last two sentence in rant made sense?
Digital device with analog input?
ggromx4654yI believe you are confusing corporate greed (in trying to increase revenue in proprietary hardware) with progress.
Analog audio still sounds better than digital. *hugs his tube preamp*
@rohitshetty that's just being pedantic
