To me, the wrongheadedness started in 2012 with the redesign of the iMac to make it stupidly thin. The reason all those ports are gone from the MBP is that it is so thin. You cannot fit an HDMI port...

My point isn’t that the SD card has no use today - my point is that whatever use the SD card has today, it is no bigger than it was in 2016. I would argue that its use is considerably less than back...
