Apple should have introduced the iPad 3 with Lightening. Who wants to retract and buy an iPad with a 30 pin connector? Technically, all new accessories shouldn't support it in the future. I'm a little ticked at the way Apple is incrementing features. I'm not going to buy a new iPad. I'm happy with the one I've got. Don't blast me. Another thing: with the new connector, I thought it allowed for more internals due to its smaller footprint. You know the iPad 5 is coming soon. I think to slap lightening on a device with the same dimensions is utter *********. I can't wait for a tear down to see justification.
