I walk into an Apple store shortly and buy a new Mac Book Pro and a new iPhone I will not be able to plug my iPhone into my Mac Book Pro without getting a converter? Can't get my iTunes backups. Does that make sense? I will not be able to use my Time Machine backup from my current Mac Book Pro without getting an adapter. Something Apple is doing isn't just right. Ok eliminate stuff but provide the mechanism to connect all the new gear together and to move forward easily from old to new.
