7 things Silicon Valley needs to stop doing in 2017

Mike Elgan | Jan. 3, 2017
I love you, Silicon Valley. You know I do. But there are a few things you keep doing that exasperate everyone.

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.
