    This is a clip from the D8 Conference, recorded in 2010.
    Steve Jobs is talking about the courage it takes to remove certain pieces of technology from Apple products. This happened after the iPad was introduced without support for Flash, just as the iPhone, back in 2007.

    This clip adds some perspective into the debate of Apple's new AirPod and the decision to remove the traditional analog audio connector from the iPhone 7. This kind of decision is not new to Apple.

    The interview occurred 6 years ago, and Steve Jobs was already using the word "courage" to explain why the company does things the way it does.

    Let me know what you guys think of this video. It puts the whole argument of the removal of the headphone port into perspective especially the end part of the video where he says 'If we succeed, they'll buy them. And if they we don't, they wont. And it'll all work itself out.'

    To play devil's advocate, it doesn't mean Apple is right. It just means that Apple is doing what they think is right, and that they don't mind taking flak for it.

    Time will tell as to whether Apple has made the right move here. But Apple has historically made more right calls than wrong ones.
