So they had to bring in the Foo Fighters to liven up an underwhelming announcement. Weak.

What do you expect from Apple events that always include 'magical and revolutionary', the same scripts, the same actors, etc?

Yeah they do. Microsoft and VMware both pull the same stuff.

I wonder what happened to the no cloning clause.

It's only cloning if somebody does it to Apple. Try not to look at xerox, unix, features on android such as notifications that were used on ios 5, etc..

So much for doubling down on security. Everything about the leaks was true.

looks like a SGS3 including the color.

I think I'm done with Apple phones. The wife will keep her 4S, but I'm going to move on to the Windows 8 phone. Have a WP7 at work and have been really impressed with the OS. It has all the apps I want. Was waiting to see what Apple popped out of the can this time, but I don't see anything that's going to keep me.

It's ridiculously priced. Plus I would need three of them for my household. Let's be real here. $29 is a kick to the balls.

Agreed. It must contain quite a bit of circuitry to be that large and that expensive.

I'm not saying they're justified in charging $29 - even if the circuitry costs $5, sell the damn thing for $10 or less.

Sure but this thread is about Apple.

I would think the Apple geniuses could come up with some new spin at this point. Apparently not.

Or it's just a white adapter with rounded edges.
The cables are $19. Still crazy if you ask me but better than $29.

Look for inexpensive adapters to start popping up on monoprice.com

reply to ptrowski
Unless the "adapter" only works with a few digital only devices, it will at least need an ADC, a DAC, serial to USB converter, possibly some voltage regulators or DC/DC converters.

If it works with the existing HDMI or Video out cables, it'll need even more sophisticated video D to A converters. Won't know how extensive it is until somebody cracks one open. But I can almost guarantee you it's not just a box of wires.

7? It was 8.9 as far as i can remember and it's already been leaked to be shown in October.

Not 8.9", it would be rumoured to be 7.85". Their current unit is 9.7" a drop of less than an inch is worthless and not very noticeable.

Nokia better watch out. Apple is probably applying for a patent for the new ipod nanos as we speak...

Colors sure but come on...the new Nano's look exactly like miniature Nokias. I know when I saw that screen shot I though Shiller was talking about WP8 competition.
