    He just said something about things that were done by wire can now be done wireless...blah blah..Basically I dunno. Best part about it is it's reversible.

    It's a gimmick so they can have cables called thunderbolt and lightning.

    It might be USB 3 on the other end. I doubt it is Thunderbolt on the end.

    The marketing team make it lightning. I'm surprised they didn't go with iLightning.

    :) it gives you a shock every time you have to buy a new accessory because your old one is now obsolete.
