My guess is that other manufacturers will follow suite, but why they couldn't just go the USB-2 route like everyone else is annoying. Still the fact that Apple is sliding in the market may well have to do with their insensitivity to customer's needs.

Yeah funny how they started in a garage and now try and make garage startup as difficult as possible. I mourn the loss of PATA hard drives because you can't easily connect them to a micro controller. USB had that problem too until chips with USB on board became available.

Proprietary concerns

As I recall, there was some criticism of Lightning because of Apple's use of a proprietary connector. So...I'm curious, does this eliminate that concern? Or does it add another proprietary layer?

Nice idea for connecting. Now, garage-based entrepreneurs can use this interface to build products that can connect to products made by the largest company in the world -- which itself began in a garage.
