Day 272: The business of obsolescence

This is the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini. It is seven years old. The sound quality is nuanced, fulsome and satisfying. In its pre-Thunderbolt heyday, it commanded a $700 asking price. If the 3.5mm headphone jack is phased out, it will be next to worthless.

Nothing has changed about the sound quality, though.

You know what would’ve been courageous in the iPhone 7 launch? Refusing to supply a Thunderbolt-to-3.5mm jack adapter.
