It's not just a simpel rewiring box.
If Apple actually releases any product that is more than worth it I feel bad for the shareholders

That's funny. Tonight, I randomly began wondering when we could purchase one.

Cables are almost always incredibly over-priced but this seems almost malicious. We figured out that the Thunderbolt cable was actually reasonably priced (shocking though that may be) but I can't see how this cable costs more than US$2-3 to actually make. If even that. Apple's scheme seems a little weird to me, that HDMI cable for the iPad was like US$39. Kinda makes me wonder.

Making [more] money, fixing a problem [caused by Apple] there never really was.

Genius.

Well, seeing as the Raspberry Pi can be $25 the real cost of these adapters and cables must be the high quality white plastic rather than the inclusion of a simple chip. It's the only logical explanation. You don't get a $25 Raspberry Pi in high quality white Apple plastic.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a female 30 pin to male USB cable and a dual female USB adapter to bridge? I think it's like 7 bucks...

With everything else I could complain about, the pure fact that the short cable version of these is 39 dollars wants to make me never buy another apple product as long as I live, and I'm sort or a fanboi. Greed at its highest level. This is not business , it's robbery. F apple. I'm close to selling this phone and trying out the Nokia 920

Exactly. I won't buy one (or any other cables/chargers) unless I absolutely have to. I'll hold out until some one comes out with a knock off.

Wow no kidding. I wonder how much of that is profit, $37 ?

Apple just has to nickel and dime people on every little thing; this is as bad as buying RAM through them.

So, you made an uninformed purchase decision and are debating dumping the i5 based on the cost of an adapter?

Perhaps because they made an informed decision.
