BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Everything old is new again. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to discard aging technology for the hot new thing, breaking up is hard to do. Electric cars may never replace gas-burners in our affections. McDonald's (MCD - Get Report) can tempt us with new salad varieties, when all we want is the return of the McRib. Apple (AAPL) can banish wonky Flash plug-ins from its iOS, but public demand found a way to bring it back, HTML 5 be damned.Apple has long led the way on tough-love innovation that discards old technology for new, incensing users and threatening industries. First Apple stopped shipping computers with floppy-disk drives. Then it shut the door on the FireWire transfer standard, just as it did for SCSI, the serial port and the desktop BUS. Big deal.
