Raspberry Pi 3 microSD card slot - spring ejection?

Quick question. I just got the RPi3 and notice that it doesn't eject my microSD card when I press into it. All my RPi2's have a spring ejection of the microSD card (as does all my microSD slots I've ever come across). Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a change in hardware. It works just fine, but m...

Just took the second RPi out of the box for the first time and attempted to boot up today. Nothing. I read the sticky and o...
