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.

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.

A soundproofing invention called Acoustiblok recently won a television challenge to silence an air horn with only a fraction of an inch of polymer material.
Robots came into their own in the 1970s. Gone were the low-budget black-and-white B movies. Now robots roamed in full-color feature films with A-list actors.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
