Here's our new cable. It does what cables do. It also makes pretty light.

We are the future.

Cool cable.

I wish you could get Sata cables, or even power cables, that did the same thing. Now that would make an amazing light show inside your computer.

apple is so dumb for doing proprietary connectors, especially when they are slower than usb3 anyway. i also like how they are now making a lightning to 30 pin adaptor supposedly :facepalm:

It's not dumb, the whole point of the lightning connector is supporting multiple... outputs(?) with one physical port. HDMI out, audio out, etc., and whatever else. Also I read an article saying that it might be possible to actually upgrade the lightning connector on future devices, which would be cool if it turned out to be true.

I think he was more aiming at the fact that they could have went with a USB 3.0 route. Or something along those lines. Realistically apple keeping the same type of charger for years was pretty nice. I'm surprised apple didn't go with Micro USB like all the other smart phones have.
