“You need a Moto Z.”
— Casey Palmer to basically everyone he talks to, gushing over how awesome his phone is.
In the beginning, I wondered what was so cool about a phone without a headphone jack.
When Apple announced the iPhone 7 in September, people lost their minds—what’s the point of having a device with access to millions of songs if you can’t listen to them? Buy wireless earbuds, they said. Change up the charging port with a dongle, they said. It took a feature everyone knew so well and did away with it—for a number of good reasons, mind you (waterproofing and Bluetooth redundancy to name a couple), but for all the negative hoopla they got about it, people failed to note two things:
- We must embrace better methods to make better phones, and
- That Apple didn’t do it first.
