I saw on the news where they were warning folks not to drill the hole ..... but I didn't pay a lot of attention since it doesn't affect my flip phone

Hey marksr, I know a way to make that flip phone into a smart phone. What you need is a welder, a couple of nails.....:grin:

Ukrainian YouTuber Taras Maksimuk, who is based in Sacramento, California, produced the video. Looking at the titles of his other clips - “can the iPhone 7 survive in liquid nitrogen for five minutes?” and "What Happens If You Microwave an iPhone 7?” – shows how he “specializes in smashing technology for your pleasure.”
Another idiot alive and well.

Hey Norm - I've got a stick welder and all kinds of nails

My flip phone does all I need it to I know the kids would be lost without their smart phones and have an unexplained desire to be constantly connected .... and what's with posting everywhere you go and pics of what you are fixin' to eat ?? I just carry a cellphone so my wife/kids can get a hold of me if they need to and the rare occasion that I need to make a call.

Dumb question: I do not buy any i-whatever products but I keep hearing that they didn't have the jack because they want you to buy the wireless earbuds for $170. I just bought a Bluetooth neckband headset that sounds great for $30.

I don't know about the price of the ear buds I really haven't paid that much attention to the new Iphone. However I heard another theory about why no headphone jack and that is that Apple wants to be the exclusive credit card processor through Apple Pay. Now many people use Pay Pal to process credit cards when I go to the farmers market but that may soon change. Not sure how true or false that is I just heard that theory on another forum and thought it was interesting.
