iMac G5 has no internal modem

I’ve just noticed on the Apple store that Apple now have a USB modem that is required for connecting to the internet. This is probably due to the fact that the majority of people connecting tot he net these days do so via broadband rather than dial-up.

Is Apple starting the beginning of the end for dial-up internet connections by phasing out modems in the iMac? This seems to be the same thing as the loss of the floppy disk drive from the iMacs when they came out in 1998.
