Don’t laugh, but that’s exactly what Google said in a new promotional video for one of the device’s hardware features. And we are not talking about dust and moisture protection, a chipset or a smartphone screen. Throughout the video, Google reveres the device’s standard 3.5mm audio jack in the best traditions of former Apple chief designer Jony Ive. Hardly anyone has ever filmed such a video about the headphone jack, which in the video is proudly called “The Circle”. At the climax, even footage of the space station docking is used in the ad to emphasize the pleasant click feel when the headset is plugged in. And at a certain point, Google turns to technical terminology, saying that the “Circle” is suitable for connecting headphones “with both a three-way 1/8-inch TRS-jack and a four-way TRRS”. I precipitated when I saw this miracle. The video says the Pixel 5A’s headphone jack “is a great feat that draws inspiration from the past and takes the user into the future.” Unfortunately, only the mid-range Pixel has such a future, as Google hasn’t equipped flagship smartphones with a 3.5mm audio jack since the Pixel 2.
We are waiting for a reply from Apple, in which the company will proudly demonstrate, for example, the power supply that will come with the device, and this will actually become the highest technological achievement of mankind after the invention of the wheel.
Do they really rate the mental abilities of the population of our planet so low?
