"And now all the current iphone chargers will be useless with it"

No mention of money, just saying that Samsung won't go changing their chargers.

Apple made a lot of money selling those dock stations and chords and peripherals and stuff, but because of the chord being usable with every iphone, sales for all those items went way down with the recent phones.

Meaning they changed it for the SOLE purpose of revenue. Now they get to resell you something you already own. And the funny thing is, if you had an iphone4, youve already bought something you already own. For 200 bucks. Now that youve rebought the same phone you can go rebuy all the same peripheral for it! Yay Apple! Yay America!

My spirit is really low this week :(. There are a world of apple haters but I feel so alone because no one sees the real problem, businesses preying off of indoctrinated, brainwashed, uninformed consumers. All of the big businesses. Its hard to even grasp how in their grasps we are. Sigh

Sorry for my rudeness, I just... see evil when I look at apple, and I see all these people feeding their money to apple for no good reason... I just get frustrated and go on the internet so I can be a dick to everyone.

Not trying to fanboy here, but the reason they didnt use micro USB would be that the chassis wouldn't enable the device to be as thin as they wanted.

Oh yeah because want 18% thinner is totally a justified reason to make it so your customers have to pay $30 for an adapter to make it compatible with your accessories and $20 for the new cable. Who ever picked up the 4S and was like hmmm this thing is too fat! it needs to be thinner. The thinness is just an excuse the real reason behind why apple do anything is money.

Mini usb connectors are only 3mm in height. Mini Usbs are used in phones significantly thinner then the iphone 5. The reason they didn't use USB is cause they then couldn't control and charge groups the make peripherals for there products then. So as usual Apple take the route of ripping off a small percentage of the populations who are to stupid to realize that there are better and cheaper products available.

I call ******** you stupid ******.

Actually this is probably accurate, Apple engineers are far too incompetent to put a microUSB in a phone 7.6mm thick when Android has already done it with 6.68mm.

Huawei Ascend P1 S bitch.

If the cable fails more quickly than the previous one you will have to buy a new cable. Key word here is BUY. You make a product and have a component fail that has to be replaced otherwise the product won't work. That means more money for the company that sells the product. Things aren't meant to last any more, they are meant to fail so you can buy more **** to use the **** you have.

It is reversible, so you can insert it either up or down. The cable is honestly the only cool innovative thing of the entire event.
