30-19=Who cares?

Knee-jerk outrage.  Three key points:

  1. The new 19-pin port will offer as much functionality as the old 30-pin port.
  2. Apple (or a third-party vendor) will offer an adapter.  That’s a lock.
  3. If you’re surprised by Apple’s willingness to sacrifice customers’ investment in technology that Apple strongly believes is not the way of the future, you haven’t been paying attention for the past 15 years (cf. OS 9 and Motorola/PPC processors)

Update: #2? Check.
