    Has anyone noticed that the new 9 pin docking cable for the iPhone 5 and presumably future I devices contains a chip which can detect the use of unauthorized accessories.

    Read about that and thought it evil genius-like, and likely to piss off users, lol.

    Wondering about that, too. Also imagining that if there's any way to defeat Apple's attempts, there probably is money to be made in producing such an accessory, lol.

    New 9 pin docking cable

    It's not an unexpected move. The lightning connector is all digital and Apple are obliged to put protection into the data flow chain to at least hinder the possibilities of things like third party adapters being put in between the device and cable and streaming off high quality video, audio, etc. Of course it also allows them much greater control of the peripheral supply chain, but hey, it's Apple! You shouldn't be surprised as nothings really changed... they've been doing that for years!

    Not so much surprising. More like putting a frog into a pot of water and gradually turning up the heat. At some point, some froggies might think the water too hot and want out, lol.

    At least they can hop out. What happened to the poor fishy?

    But yes, I think I agree with your revised analogy...

    I was thinking of another kettle of fish, lol.

    I'm platform agnostic and hop around, but easier to do if a froggie than a fishie.

    An official adaptor from Apple would likely have the chip and work without problems.
