[QUOTE=iLoveWindows&iPhone;6707579]Lol! Man, I must admit....being a American, i do envy Europeans simplistic, perfectly logical way of thought. Everything about the above statement makes perfect sense, 100%. I'm sure Republicans would claim something along the lines of "This proposal would take jobs away from hardworking Americans by hurting companies profits. Furthermore, every American is born with the freedom and right to decide for themselves which product they wish to purchase. Forcing your average "Joe the plumber" to buy a certain type of charger is not only unconstitutional....it's just downright un-American!"
I'm Mitt Romney and I approve this message.

Why does everyone keep saying 30 when the adapter is 20

Lightning to USB Cable
Actually you don't.
I have the apple 30 pin to usb cables.
If I have to pay the same amount of money, it makes more sense to get a new cable.
That way you know you aren't going to have any problems with it.
PLUS, I purchased 2 lightning cables from Abesco & Co. on Amazon for $19.97 shipping included...
And I emailed them about the proprietary chips in the cable.
They guarantee that their cables will work properly.

Apple released it first in Europe because they know that they got the Americans in their pockets and Europeans think before they buy and I see less and less iPhones in Europe in the last 2 years, and The people at apple know that in Europe most people use the mini USB for their devices so they hope that it will make it easier to grab extra europeans with the adapter which also make no sense because the only reason that Apple created the lighting connector was to make the iPhone 5 smaller then why didn't they just went with the mini USB connector right away? the only answer I can think of is $$$$$ and the Apple addiction sure gives it to them especially in America, in the last couple of years I see a big decline of Apple products in European hands and it's all Apple fault because they got way to greedy and to tell the truth I'm also one of the addicts but every decision Apple made this year was wrong and you can see it with all the complaints on the web and Apple shares went down, also as much as I love my jail broken iPad 3 64GB LTE it's still a gadget compare to the new Microsoft Surface which is a real PC tablet with extendable memory, a USB port that works with hard drive or CD drive or anything else that works with USB plus the cover is not just a cover like the one for the iPad, the Surface cover got a touch keyboard build in if you feel on using it instead of using the touch screen keyboard, and it's cheaper then the new iPad! also for the first time I really see people loving a new product other then Apple and not because the price so I'm thinking of getting one myself only waiting to till after the holidays when the prices will go down and maybe by then new and better windows 8 products will be out.

Wasn't it originally said the reason for the lightning connector as opposed to the micro USB was because the micro USB did not supple enough power to charge the iPad?

You aren't being forced to buy the product. If greed were a factor, Apple would have made the adapter a requirement to use the device and then sold it separately.

I wonder if I can keep one in my wallet without breaking it?

If they were going to do this anyway, why not just use the standard MicroUSB? I mean, we could claim speed all day with the Lightning connector, but really, don't most iDevice users sync their stuff via WiFi now anyway? That would mean most of us only need a cable to CHARGE our devices, and MicroUSB would work just fine.

Yeah, I just got another lightning cable instead for $19..

ITT: Apple fanboys defending a stupid decision.
There was absolutely no reason why Apple couldn't have went with the standard (mirco USB) that every single other company in the world uses. Instead, they would rather take your hard earned money on a proprietary connector, and screw over their existing users. A **** move in my opinion.

But hey I'm a fan boy so of course I don't care lol
