It’s rumoured that Apple will shake the industry with the launch of its iPhone 7 later this year and abandon the standard headphone jack in favour of their own proprietary Lightning connector. I discuss the pros and cons of such a move and argue (again) for the need for industry to agree standards and consumers to enforce them.
All cars are the same… or are they? Why are those little differences between vehicles that get in the way of you keeping your eyes fixed on the road? Why has the auto-industry only embraced a limited form of standardisation in the design of cars?
