Hi and apologies in advance for these questions...I searched for answers but couldn't find 'em... I have had an iPad 2 since they first came out and just got a Mini a few weeks ago. I know just enough to make me annoying. My questions: - can I safely use OEM cables...specifically charging cables...I hate the length of the Apple cable (way too short). I ordered another cable from Apple and it is the same stupid length as the cable that came with the Mini. I have 17 USB cables...I counted...am I better off using the USB to Lightning adapter? - if I can use OEM cables, is a USB to Lightning cable the correct one - is there a different, generic name? are these the same as USB to Micro? - can I charge the Mini with my iPad charger? safely? - has anyone had any luck watching iTunes on their Samsung TV? the USB to Lightning cable adapter isn't working for this. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance!
