Enforcing Ports on Companies is Bad

Recently, the EU moved closer to enforcement of ports on user devices, specifically enforcing Apple to use USB-C on iPhones by 2024.

This move sets a very dangerous precedent, AND basically eliminates free markets and innovation, all in the name of less cords. 🤦🏻‍♂️

While it’s a no-brainer that switching to one port is a win for consumers, having a government entity enforce that solution on private companies discourages innovation, limits competition, and ultimately — years down the road — it is going to be a nightmare for a company with an innovative port technology to bring their innovation to consumers.
