POP charger back in business on Kickstarter
The company behind POP had to refund $100,000 that was collected via Kickstarter when Apple pointed out that its terms prohibited the use of another type of cable in a device that featured the Lightning charger. Thanks to Apple's reversal of its position, the refunds to more than 1,000 backers of the product will not be processed and POP will continue on its way to becoming a useful product for those with a number of devices.

Nice product, Apple has some sort of COMPLEX in every single term.

Lightning, not lightening. But yeah, this is very good news. Apple finally comes to its senses and this a great reply by the gang at Junior Edison to tell people they weren't just putting ideas in the air and have actual plans to bring this to the fore.

Thankfully. To be honest, the whole debacle was for the better. They just got a ton of free coverage on the product itself. I hadn't even heard about it until they pulled it, and now that it's back on, I'll most certainly be getting one.
