Apple Now Selling Lightning-to-MicroUSB Adapter
Apple remains non-standard
Obviously Apple could have (should have) standardized and went with micro-USB to start. They had the chance. One more irritant to consumers. They made a bad call with the Lightning idea here.The difference adds no value.
This adapter shows that for the first time, Apple hasn't been able to completely fight the mainstream flow. Their non-standard interface on all iPhone and iPods was always an issue for all but the devoted iHead people.
Every other modern device (phone, tablet, media player) uses a now Standard USB or microUSB interface. It looks like Apple might be finally finding it hard to Stand Alone.
