Getting rid of "old crud" would be ok if it was actually old.

Basically, if you go to the Apple store now and buy the latest iPhone and latest Macbook Pro, you can't connect them to each other without a dongle.

Even the magsafe port has gone.

While it's a true statement .. and a kinda strange concept for us old timers.

Why would you want to connect them together? The only reason i can think it might be useful is to charge the phone maybe, but you'd use a charger for that usually no?

Everything else can be done without a physical connection between the devices.
