Check out this video of Steve Jobs explaining why Apple drops tech features (such as the headphone jack) from its products despite the decision being controversial.

Notably, Jobs says that Apple has the courage to take these steps, something that Phil Schiller also mentioned during Apple's keynote on Wednesday.

"We're trying to make great products for people, and we have at least the courage of our convictions to say we don't think this is part of what makes a great product," Jobs says.

Take a look at the video below!

Maybe because the new headphone will cost 150USD instead of 30 and they are easy to loose?

Wanna bet that? Not the losing part, just the cost.

After all the success you have had and the future everyone will look forward to? The headphone jack removal is like the downfall of flash. No matter how many times people laugh at these decisions, they eventually realize it's time to move forward. Flash is nearly replaced by html5 in lots of sites and ZDnet mentioned that the jack will be obselete in the next decade and it's clear to see why.
