In a day and age where the only time I connect my iPad and iPhone to my MBP is to transfer photos, because I prefer it over photo stream, why in the world would Apple switch the dock connecter? It doesn't make any sense to me to create a new connecter that the iPad isn't updated to. So now people have to carry 2 cords in my Booq bag rather than my universal one. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I think the idea is ridiculous. In the grand scheme of things, I guess Apple is just making money.
