Another example is the Apple MacBook Pro. One of the best and most beloved features on Apple laptops in recent years was Apple's patented MagSafe connector, which used a magnet to attach the electrical cord. If somebody kicked the cord accidentally, it would disconnect without destroying your laptop.
The latest MacBook Pros plug in with a USB-C charging cable. Apple removed a great feature to pursue its obsession with minimizing holes in the laptop.
Stop it, Silicon Valley. If you're good enough and lucky enough to come out with a feature everybody loves, don't kill it.
It's 2017. Just stop already.
