    A USB plug will be impossible when iPad keeps getting thinner! Anyone thought about this?

    Good point Bri.......I suppose that means not much chance of a 3.5" or 5.25" floppy drive either!

    There is no problem what so ever.
    Just see all those small connectors on Cell phones or Cameras.
    All Apple will need is a small female connector or even using the current one, and a special adapter cable with a regular USB female on the other side and a small male connector on the iPad side.
    And it can even be a device like the one use for Camera flase memory that you can put on a special adapter connected to the iPad.

    I'm sure they can make the connector smaller, micro-USB?

    maybe I should patent that name....

    I read that you can use the camera connection kit for USB.

    I wish that where true, but it doesn't work with a USB hard drive.
