Apple intros a smaller dock connector and calls it Lightning, but fret not, there will be an adapter

The cable connector is reversible, with pins on both sides, so it doesn't really matter which side you plug it in if you are in a hurry, which is svelte. The reason for the move, except to save space, Apple quoted to be that much of the things that we used to do with cables, are now done wirelessly.
As for the billions of accessories made for the old connector, there will be a 30-pin-to-8-pin adapter to soothe your transition pains, and can you guess how Apple called the connector (yes, there is a name for it). Why, Lightning, of course.

Yes, and the adapter will cost $129.95 and wil be sold only by Apple but, I will buy it nonetheless, along with 3 billion others because investing in Apple and my future is never a baaa-haaa-haaa-aaad thing.

Okay, I am impressed. Let me tell why. This can be inserted via both sides. Micro-usb can't do that and I dunno if any other OEM has started this trend. It's convenient and useful. Thats the most innovative thing Apple came up with this time. Sadly, Apple will be the only one manufacturing it.

Oh, by the way, we're changing the dock connector and we'll be charging a minimum of $39.99 for an adapter. Oh and we're also going to be the only ones that make the adapters. Easily the greediest company on the planet.
