It's funny how some consider a feature "they don't use" to be obsolete. No way are standard midi jacks becoming obsolete. Tons of gear today still includes standard midi jacks.
People want to think some features are obsolete just because the maker of the item has deemed it obsolete, yet in reality they've just found another way to make you buy a higher end model.
Sure.., I can see floppies, and even smart media cards becoming obsolete, but standard midi..., no FREAKING way!
I'm with Fran on this.... Funny how floppies are obsolete, yet they're still on shelves, and I haven't read about any floppy disk shortages. Finding smart media cards in stores is another thing though-as most of those have to be purchased online.
