    The same guy who put together the article on how the leaked images of the next iPhone make sensem has put together a similar article about the design of the dock connector and how what has been leaked is likely the real deal.

    The foolproof dock connector

    This guy writes good, easy to understand articles.

    The one thing that I think was missing was the need for the extra connectors (versus mini or micro usb) that allow control of the device via docks and other accessories. (Or at least I missed it in the article)

    When I first saw the title, I was thinking - we don't know what it is yet, so just wait.

    BUT - after reading the article, I found it well written and interesting. Waiting to see what Apple really does. Thinking the next stage show will highlight the cool things they have done with this connector.

    If Apple has put this much thought into a new dock connector then, well, the future's bright :)

    Thanks for sharing. Now, let's hope that Apple makes adapters available on launch day for our "old" USB cables.

    one thing I hope for is a notification led on the charge cable connector itself to show red when charging and green when charged that way I don't have to look at the phone
