Manufacturers have had a history of pushing changes in a way that the consumers don’t notice all the disadvantages, and just accept the change.
Take for instance the standardization of 16/9 aspect ratio laptop monitors. Nevermind 4/3, you can’t get any non-MacBook laptop made this year that’s even 16/10. This is one of the few things I agree with Apple on.
You shouldn’t always expect market competition to give you choices when there are only a hand-full of companies in that industry.
