And the award goes to Harry McCracken for Time, with this gem:

Apple dumped the dock connector because…well, because it’s Apple.

And for bonus points McCracken’s article when first posted spelled iPhone, as iPh0ne (that’s a zero instead of the letter o) in several places (hat tip to David Barry).

I can’t tell you if the review is any good, I suspect not, because I stopped reading at the first quoted line. Not only is his statement blatant trolling, but it completely minimizes the tough design challenges that went into making a newer, smaller connector. Not to mention that it allows you to plug in a cable either way, something USB does not allow for.
