Dave slices and dices a billionaire with a shoulder chip. Who hates cables and dongles?
Billionaires and technology writers on a slow news day.
Anand Mahindra (billionaire):
Got a new iPad & found that the lightning connector’s been replaced. So need a new charger which doesn’t work with my iPhone and new earphones too. More junk when I travel. Great strategy to boost accessory sales, but not surprised more folks are sticking to existing models.
Dave had no sympathy.
Anand Mahindra— the poster child for billionaires in India– didn’t know the new iPad Pro came with a USB-C connector instead of Lightning. You knew that, right? I knew it. Apple Stores have a return policy so taking the device back to get an iPad with a Lightning connector and a headphone jack would be easy for a billionaire.
Get on with life. It changes.
