Why Apple’s AirPods Are Legitimately A Terrible Idea
At Apple’s yearly September keynote occasion, a great deal of real things were declared: new camera highlights, shinier telephones, an application featuring Mario, and – most outstandingly – the disposal of the earphone jack on the iPhone 7 and presentation of AirPods, Apple’s new remote earbuds.
This last declaration, in any case, is an authentically dreadful thought. Here’s the reason:
1. You’re going to lose them IMMEDIATELY
At this moment, you presumably forget about your earbuds at any rate once every day, and they’re associated with a long, white wire to make for a quite firm, evident thing. Expel the wires and now you have two separate modest marbles – meaning you can lose each AirPod INDIVIDUALLY…and you are DEFINITELY going to do only that, on an essentially regular routine.
For hell’s sake, regardless of the fact that you recollect to keep the AirPods each in the same spot, you will have a huge amount of inconvenience discovering them, in light of the fact that there’s no more a long wire standing out to make their area clear.
Note: yes, they accompany a case that you can charge them in, yet that is simply one more separate thing for you to forget about. What used to be one basic thing (earbuds) is presently a 3-thing bad dream where losing any thing could demolish your day.
2. One’s going to drop out of your ear and onto something gross
Let’s be honest – you don’t take great consideration of your belonging. That is the reason you (likely) keep your telephone for a situation (or, something else, have a telephone with a screen that is crushed to damnation and back). In any case, prepare to be blown away. They’re not making cases for AirPods, in light of the fact that then you would need to by one means or another expansion the extent of your ear trench opening or something. What’s more, with your earbuds no more fastened to your telephone, these things are going to drop out ALL THE TIME.
Furthermore, they’re certainly going to arrive somewhere gross.
In any event with your telephone, you’re not truly staying it into your body after it gets somewhat gross on the off chance that you drop it. Be that as it may, AirPods will be stuck straightforwardly into your ears after you drop them on the metro or in a trash can or in the yard where you canine pees each day. What’s more, that is the most ideal situation – there’s a decent risk you’ll drop them and (because of their little size) they’ll be lost perpetually – tumbling down a channel, onto the metro tracks, or (in all probability) in the vast void that is your love seat.
3. They cost SO MUCH to something you’re unquestionably going to lose or break promptly
$160?! I pay about $10 for earbuds now, fundamentally in light of the fact that I comprehend they’re shoddy and expendable. To think I would pay 16 times more to something I’m 16 times more inclined to lose does not sound extremely engaging.
4. It will fuck up when you’re utilizing your iPhone and Apple Watch in the meantime
One of the real offering purposes of the AirPods is that they’ll switch sources to perceive the gadget you’re utilizing. In any case, when you’re utilizing both your iPhone AND your Apple Watch in the meantime how wilpssssssssh hahahahaha simply joking nobody utilizes or will ever utilize an Apple Watch. “Ooo, here’s a modest more terrible telephone that scarcely does anything! Dislike you as of now utilize your telephone to tell what time it is OH WAIT THAT’S EXACTLY HOW PEOPLE DO IT AND IT WORKS GREAT.”
5. They’re not called ‘Air Buds’
Apple REALLY failed here – they needed to utilize the prefix “Air-“, which is thoroughly fine, yet as opposed to redubbing earBUDS as AirBuds, they chose to bring back “Case”? Huh? That is not what these are – “Case” was what they utilized for their media player, not the things you used to listen to stuff.
I’m speculating they simply needed to keep away from “Air Bud” memes (like, the puppy who was entirely great at b-ball), however AirBud would have appeared well and good as a name AND permitted individuals to make fun pics of the b-ball pooch. What the heck, Apple?
