all of your adapter are belong to us
I see the new iPhone has been announced and that it can show even more icons for Apps purchased from the App Store on the new bigger screen.
The faster chip required to refresh the larger screen and the increased pixels require more battery, so they've shaved the circuit boards to pack the phone with ever more lithium ion polymer.
I also noticed that there's a revised connector - named Lightning, which is to go with the already available Thunderbolt high speed connector.
It's a clever commercial move to design a new connector.
None of the existing stuff will fit it, except with an expensive and fairly ugly adapter which costs about £25.
I guess next iPad will also move to the new connector, so we'll all eventually have another collection of defunct power blocks and adapters.
* excuse the poor artwork above. I've been using PS CS6 and not quite figured out a few of the changes.
