With the arrival of iPhone 7 we bid goodbye to the earphone jack and hello to a new age of… wireless earphones. Dubbed “Airpods”, the new cordless earphones — while not the first of its kind — signals a change that makes many uncomfortable. And because this is the Internet, the only appropriate reaction is to joke about it.
Admit it, the only thing you associate with earphone cords before this was the fact that it can entangle itself in less than 5 seconds. A day after AirPods were announced, the earphone cord was suddenly the last best thing since sliced bread. Love it or hate it, the best thing about this is that the jokes are free.
