Robo: Oh we should give Apple a prize and worship them because they bestowed upon some the mighty adapter!
Honestly, I thought comments like these were beneath you.

Nobody is saying that Apple should be given a prize, or worshipped. Just that there was a reason why they made the design choices they did, besides being in cahoots with headphone manufacturers as part of some industry-wide conspiracy.

And by all metrics, AirPods are extremely popular. They're probably the most relevant new Apple product in a long while, in fact. I don't have them because I don't like earbuds, but I see them all the time. It's not just "fanboys" or whatever (what is this, 2003?).

and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong
