Now the internet lampooned and laughed at the decision and there are plenty of memes about how ridiculous it is. Because it is a silly decision. I don't plan on buying one myself so it doesn't really affect me much. The problem I have isn't really the idea that they've gotten rid of the headphone jack. My problem is with the people who have made fun of Apple for it and then gone on to say that they would still buy them. I actually read one webcomic where the joke was comparing the iPhone 7 to a woman without a vagina but in the description the artist lamented that they were going to miss their precious headphone collection.
If you don't like a product then don't purchase it folks. It's as simple as that. You can vote with your wallet. If you don't like that Apple took away the headphone jack (and made their iPhone 7 compatible headphones $200) then don't purchase their products. Don't reward them for fucking you over like that.
If you don't like it then don't buy it. No one is going to force you to buy it and buying it means that they will never learn. The best case scenario is that the iPhone 7 tanks. Like, really fucking tanks. Then the iPhone 7S (which will definitely happen) has an earbud jack and an apology. What's more likely to happen now is that the trend is set and most new phones lack a headphone jack.
When you treat consumers like shit and they still buy your crap you're giving them permission to treat you like shit.
I suppose that's the general message of this post; if you disagree with something that a company does then you can just not do business with that company.
