There was some moaning and groaning when Steve Jobs decided years ago that Apple would begin phasing out support for optical Drives. It is clear now that what we have is another "Steve Jobs was right" moment.

Um, no. I still watch DVDs regularly on my PC (Netflix FTW). So dead or not, Steve Jobs can go get fucked.
