it's Apple's strategy to grasp users?

I hope they go towards MicroUSB. Tired of their crappy custom docks. The EU has implemented some policy though that will force manufacturers to switch to a standardized port by 2014, and I'm not or not if Apple was part of that agreement.

They should go with what the macbooks use the (Magsafe ) that would be the best for the user and the APPLE it would make the user that has other APPLE products happy , and it would cut down on APPLE fixing the 30 pins that break from time to time .

Not sure if the magsafe connectors are capable of data transfer, though.

I hate apple but its the worlds most used cable, for I everything. you take that away for the new phone and then when someone has a low battery they cant just charge their phone everywhere.

its all in the mind state of "easy to use" and "reliability" I see a lot of discouraged people going
ted: my phone is dying hey bill do you have an ipod charger?
bill: yea ted I have one.
ted: ohhhh noooo it doesn't fit my phone...

I see the discouragement by me when people ask me ridiculous questions like " do you have an ipod wire" the answer is no since I dont own any apple shit. its gonna make a difference small things made big changes.

I like their cable better than microUSB. MicroUSB can't really hold the phone in place on docks and things like that, and doesn't "snap" into the phone. I my samsung focus i constantly found that it had fallen out while charging. ;/. I do think they should ditch there connection type in favor of something much faster though. Take advantage of USB 3.0
