You pay an obscene price for many branded accessories, not just Apple accessories.

Hell, look at Monster Cables, a $95 HDMI cable will be $2 on every where else. I can go on and on about accessories from the actual manufacturer will always be priced high compared to 3rd party cables. So I'm not sure exactly why you are going this route to bring up an argument.

Because they aren't using USB, they are using Thunderbolt. The connectors are different and the connectors wouldn't be compatible. Apple believes Thunderbolt is the future , and they are the frontrunners with this idea. It's on the laptops now and is actually showing up on motherboards for PC now.
