    I need to know if it's possible to output video from an iPhone 4 via 30-pin connector to USB/mini displayport and display it on a Macbook Pro. A friend of mine is paranoid about his car and wants to examine the hood for scratches at high magnification using the Airmicropad app (he has the device to go along with it, http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/airmicropad/id374881544?mt=8 ). The iPhone screen is too small and he doesn't have an iPad.

    I don't think it's possible right now, but there is a Dock Connector-to-VGA adapter that's advertised for the iPad that also works on the iPhone 4 that he could use with an external display or TV. He'd probably need to jailbreak for external display mirroring (since it only seems to work for things like slideshows, playing videos, Netflix, etc.)

    this entire thread just sounds like Spam from the maker of this "airmicropad" device

    - Lame story ( my paranoid friend, car scratches ?)
    - Direct link to Iphone app
    - Join date November 13
    - Contradictory posts ( he states he is looking into buying a MBA, then says he has one in another post)

    The same maker of this device also makes a USB version


    why would the person buy a "iOSdevice only" version that only works with iphones, ipods and ipads when they could have purchased the USB version that natively works with a standard USB port

    It just doesn't add up = this sounds like failed Viral marketing
