Is Apple breaking my headphones?

Sunday, July 01, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A picture named exacto.gifJason Kottke reports that you can hack up your "third party" headphones with an Exacto knife to get them to work with the iPhone.  Permalink to this paragraph

Excuse me, but I like my headphones as they are, and the iPhone is a pretty lame iPod, crippled if you ask me, so I'll stick with my 60GB unit and hope that some other manufacturer gets their act together and teaches Apple some manners with their customers' money.  Permalink to this paragraph

Can you imagine the meeting at Apple where they decided that they had the market power to force their customers to get new headphones! Such chutzpah. Permalink to this paragraph
