What's wrong with writing/saying, "in future"?  Blum 3

Vis-à-vis said dock, when technical adjustments are made to take account of seasonal variations, Apple could have adopted an open kimono approach to cascade the information to its technical partners while maintaining a tightly controlled cost containment envelope in the context of a group turnover situation regarding the end-user's ownership proposition.  :grin:

Right now, at this point in time, I am blue skying the incentivisational potentialities of all the exciting directions in which we can leverage our collective synergies.

At present, we are currently actioning an inter-team group dynamic brainstorming workshop to gauge who's with the programme to determine if we're all on the same page regarding expediting solutions comensurate with past experience regarding the teams' own previous exposure to trial the elimination of low-hanging fruit to ensure robust policy regarding lessons identified, while exceeding tagets and diversifying towards a sufficiently mandatory execution, which will impact processes regarding high visibility leverage of best practices, built on a holistic approach that will determine an appropriate level of granuliarity regarding the solution opportunity.

Apparently, the lightning dock adapters aren't going to be available until 25th Otober. On top of it, it is possible third party adapters will not work:

Interesting, thanks BB. I have a Chronos iDock that I use in my kitchen and a micro system in the bedroom with a dock, so I ordered two third party adapters from Amazon. All seemed to use the stock Apple photo, and some said actual product may be different. Some did not say that audio passed through, whereas others did. I obviously ordered one that said it did. The company has been in touch to say they expect stock at the end of September (ie now-ish) and for them to arrive early October. I'm half expecting they won't work, but if they don't do what was advertised I will return them. 

 

If I do have to end up buying from Apple, the cost will be offset by the fact that earpods are going for around £25 on eBay, and I have no use for mine.

 

I received this email just now from the supplier on amazon: "I am sorry for the delay in you receiving your item, this has been caused by the discovery of a custom chip inside the original lightning connector, The manufacturer is installing a new chip set inside the adapters to make sure they are compatible."

 

Interesting. I'd be surprised if they make any profit now! If it really does include a dac and a custom chip and works, then it will be a real bargain. They're still talking about getting them out in a week or so. 

 

On a positive note, my belkin case finally arrived, very sharp and makes the iPhone a 'normal' weight instead of getting too heavy as I've found in the past. I have also sold my earpods on eBay for the same as apple's asking price, £25, just undercutting them slightly on postage  Smile Thank god for the fanboys  Wink

RE: iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 is one of the most hyped phone launches to date, and predictably, it will be one of the most expensive devices to date. How much can you expect to buy the iPhone 5 for when it is released?

It should be like the current 4s - starting at $200 but it also depends on the memory.

 

Regards

Sid

Retailer is shopness, no idea who the manufacturer is. 

Product here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B009CHDB8A/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?redirect=true&ref_=oh_details_o05_s00_i00

 

Since ordering, it looks like they've been cancelling orders and getting bad reviews as a result, so I'm not hopeful!

RE: iPhone 5

Hi Rodhas, good to hear Smile I'm not really in a rush and am toying with other ideas instead of my kitchen dock anyway. If I need to I'll just get one (or two) from apple, glad to hear they work fine. Can you post a link to the dock you mean?

 

Cheers,

Ben

RE: iPhone 5

I've been using one of these for a few days and am very impressed  :). It's a very fast web browsing machine, faster than the Galaxy S3 I find. And it's beautiful, an ideal size and weight, and has a gorgeous screen. I love it  Dirol

RE: iPhone 5

I caved.  It's my birthday today so I treated myself to a 5 Smile  Very quick, nice and light, camera seems much better in low light.

 

Was a little alarming though, I retuned my first phone within 5 minutes as it came out of the box scratched! same thing happened to my Brother.  No wonder there are so few iPhones if they are coming out of the box scratched.

Thats not good at all, i will remember that if i ever decide to purchase an iPhone 5 i will be direct from a shop and open it there to say time if i need to go back!
