    So how muchdoes this cable run and does anybody know if it has to be Apple assuming it costs an arm and a leg from them does monoprice sell one at a cheaper price?

    Also what are the uses for it, unless a teacher or student doing some kind of presentation is it useless? Can it be used for games?

    I bought mine for $30 new. I'm sure there are knock offs on eBay that are just as functional for a little less. I'm happy with what I got. You can use it to mirror the iPad display, and to project games and movies - or any other compatible apps in full 1080p onto an external display. Real racing 2 HD is one of many games that support 1080p. I use it mostly for Netflix.

    The possibilities are endless. Since the cable mirrors what you see on the iPad 2, you can view anything you want on your home HDTV. The apps don't even need to support video out. Some games like the above poster said do support 1080p otherwise you'll only be outputting 1024x768 to your TV.

    FYI: The cable works on the iPad 1, but the app must support video out.

    The adapter doesn't work with the HBO Go app, right?
