Apple has very recently been trying to get much more money in accessories for the iPod rather than the iPod itself. By removing the remote jack, a whole bunch of new accessories must be developed, including newly-introduced fees to Apple.

Not that it is justified. I'm not happy that my iTrip is now useless. I had to spend $50 to get an aux input for my car so I don't have to worry about incompatibility again. Plus I absolutely loathe that they removed Firewire support.
