Doesn't the iPhone also include an adapter while the Pixel does not, and Apple's adapter is much cheaper to buy than Google's?

The real issue is that we should never have abandoned the headphone jack.

It's embarrassing that Apple did.

The real issue is that we should never have abandoned the parallel print cable port.

It's embarrassing that Apple did.

"...We should never have abandoned the headphone jack" is exactly what a coward would say.

Also, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. You should be embarrassed for typing that. Do you wish we still had CD-ROM drives? People cried when that disappeared, too. It's called progress, dummy. Someone has to lead the way.

the headphone jack was an open standard without lockin or licensing.

The same cannot be said for lightning or usb-c.
