Ian Bogost asks Are Apple AirPods Any Good? This caught my eye:

โ€The earbuds wonโ€™t disappear, just like the smartphones havenโ€™t. But they will become invisible as they become ubiquitous.

For all his skill in envisioning a future AirPod world and the social ramifications does he really think that Airpods wonโ€™t get smaller, maybe even just embedded?
