Rene Ritchie at iMore on rumours of Apple ditching the venerable 30-pin dock connector:
Not all current accessories would be compatible, of course, even if Apple offered an adapter dongle. It would upset as many customers as it would thrill. But Apple had never been afraid to ruthlessly jettison the past for a better future. Just ask the floppy drive, and now the optical drive and FireWire port.
I’m particularly interested in how the recent million-dollar, Kickstarter backed, Elevation Dock project fares in the face of a change like this.
