Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Apple is fighting against the EU voted. Five hundred eighty two to forty in favor of a common charging standard type C So the reason is hey. We're all buying way too. Many chargers be nice if we could reuse them and they would end up in the landfill. Apple says you'RE GONNA kill innovation because the lightning port is of course so much better than type Z. Is it no no? No No. Does the same thing right. It was better than micro. Our grant much anything's better than micro. Usb But types now they don't have that argument anymore so I think the tricky thing with that too is like you know ten years ago. The you tried to do this. But the micro chargers and you know it didn't really catch on a kind of They didn't make it a law. They did it kind of an agreement right this time. The question law right but there's also a moving target right because type C will last for ten years. And they're gonNA have to mandate another connector so like you know putting that in the hands of government regulation rather than the individual filmmakers i. I applaud the the idea behind it. I just wonder how how much it's going to be workable. I is apple going to create a second phone for the market. Are they really going to abandon the lightning port? After all the time and money they spent at it are they just going to figure out another loophole for skirting this like. I'm a little skeptical. It's actually gonNA. That's what Tim. Hardwick contention is in macrumors. He says this is just going to make apple. Make this connection lists iphone. That there's been rumors about that. Just does wireless doesn't have you poured it all. That seems just horrible. Things happen and they. They've already gotten rid of their own lightening cable. When I buy my Mac pro picking up touch it has to USB breath on it no other porn and everything else should just be that to get rid of it on their own. They know better to squeeze not because they can charge. You forty five thousand dollars for the lightning game. There is a good point to be made there. Yuba key sells The songs I use a you key to you know to log into last pass another us. High g mail highly secure things and this one has a Taipei connector on it. But there's a you you becky with a Type. C and one end in a lightning on the other. The one with lightning on it is forty dollars more than the one with just type C. You now and then away. That's how you can tell. That's the apple. Tax is forty dollars. Fun is an NFC one too though so that in theory that should work. Yeah that's actually going wireless one. Yeah right I think they'll move eventually because the lightning port will eventually just pass. It's useful in the same way. I think the issue is like they're also worried like when they abandoned the thirty pin connector. It was the right move at the time but people were not happy about that but having to replace all their stuff. I mean it softened a little bit by the fact that the USCCA is at least standard. But Yeah I I. I'm kind of picturing there being a lot of revolt when they decide to eventually abandoned lightning stuff because so many people have not only cables but accessories and peripherals. I think in the next year or two. I think they're going to have more. People are GONNA see. Yeah blame the blame. The chargers all over the place. I'd love it if there
