To be fair, it was the video folks that put the audio in different places then the tip and first ring. Apple needed the audio there (tip and firts ring) so that the socket would work with headphone jacks. So blame the video camera guys for doing something different and give Apple credit for not forcing us to use an adapter to plug in headphones. ;-)
