Apple's started a trend folks. Cupertino's decision to remove the earphone jack on the iPhone caused a lot of stir in September. Users started off with a host of complaints on how existing hardware became incompatible with the device. To make matters worse, Apple's dongle didn't make things any better off either. Now that Cupertino has made the change, other manufacturers are rumored to follow its tow.
