Are you freaking kidding me? No offense, but the whole proprietary connector thing Apple (and others) have going on is ridicules. USB or other industry standards should be followed. Even by Apple... Thank you Google/HTC for getting it right.
Now that people are migrating from their closed loop Apple systems they are stuck with all this audio kit and no way to connect non Apple audio devices to it. How crazy is it that we are more than a year on and still do not have Apple 30-pin to USB converters?
Open systems and industry standards will rule (eventually). I'll get off my horse now.
