As soon as speculation began regarding Apple’s switch to a smaller dock connector, people who’d spent loads of cash on “Made for iPhone/iPod” accessories started complaining. “Now all my docks will be redundant!” Apple knew that and – as any sensible company who doesn’t like annoying its customers would – offered a solution: the 30-pin to Lightning adapter. Sure, it costs thirty bucks, but it’s hardly worth crying over.
The Joy of Tech regularly portrays common place tech frustrations in cynical and comedic fashion, and the one above is no different. The whole “I’m switching to Android” thing makes very little sense, especially considering the amount of cash you’d have to spend on apps and accessories to make everything compatible with your new, Google-powered phone. Certainly puts $30 in to perspective, doesn’t it?
