I hardly think Apple has too small a market share to matter. What’s even more startling to me is, I saw a story this past week saying Apple wants to remove/eliminate the headphone jack on their iDevices. This would mean exclusively either Bluetooth or Lightning headphones/headsets. Sorry, that’s just dumb. It means headphones require power, such as a battery. Normal, passive headphones will operate all day and night long because they don’t need a battery or power cord of any sort. This is going to do just the opposite of killing competition, it’ll encourage people to buy competing products which still have a “normal” jack.
