I’m sorry but,WTF were Apple thinking when they decided to proclaim the AC ‘Brick’ and subsequent FireWire Cabel? I mean this is a bit like buying a Digicam, then realizing that you’ll going to need to purchase a USB Data Transfer Cable, A Lense Cap and perhaps a nice Strap too… I mean this is total Nuters!

I guess this is more of that ™ ‘Different Thinking!!’ That those Apple Types like to do. No Brick’s! Great Plan let’s run with it!!!

This is absolutely atrocious on Apples part, they were the slowest computer maker on the market to adopt USB 2.0 and now they expect all those Mac users who bought Macs without USB 2.0 to chuck out another 20 dollars to buy a ruddy cable that costs 50¢ to produce.  Wow all I can say is shame on you Apple.

apple should offer a choice between usb and firewire on the website so you get what you need

or offer a pick your own accesories solution ex:

pick 3 accesories:

a dock
power brick

Well that wouldn’t work course I for one would take the Three most expensive choices, they are:

‘Brick’ €28,99 (EUR) This is actualy chaeper then I thought it would be!
IEEE2394a - Dock Cable €18,99(EUR)
Dock €38.99(EUR)

Total - €86.97(EUR) worth of Goods that either Apple would loose. Or Apple would losse if they tryied to to go Dell Built-on-demand…

I agree with most: Apple’s pricing of their accessories is atrocious. If you need a firewire cable or a dock, get the SIK DIN. It has a line-out as well, and it is better than the PocketDock. I will bend over backwards to avoid buying Apple’s overpriced accessories.
