    Saves companies from having to worry about hardware issues like ribbons disconnected. That said, I know I'm not going to enjoy having to get by without one.

    I don't know why they don't just make the keyboards bluetooth and eliminate the ribbon

    Because even though that would be relatively easy to do, every tech blog would complain about it and downplay it, to which others would follow suit. Introduce BT keyboard after the fact: genius; ship with BT keyboard: "hate it, extra item to charge once every two weeks," blah blah blah.
