I have an awful lot invested in accessories for by generation 1 (now lost) and generation 2 (now malfunctioning) iPods. I have hoped someone would do this! Have already preordered mine. I kinda wonder why Apple didn’t do this but I already know the answer :-)

When compared to Apple’s iPod cable (which is $19) $16.95 sounds reasonable. Getting the molds and tools to produce those kind of gadgets easily costs several ten thousand dollars. No idea how many they can sell, but you have to sell quite a view to return your investment.

And if what is being said in the latest is correct, it may be awhile before they can pay Apple the amount they need to make the product. A couple of other companies have paid Apple a royal ransom to make products for the gen 3. They could lose a bundle because of the simple little tool. Business wise it makes sense, but Apple would perhaps have been wiser to let out the connector for this. It is when they move to other uses for the iPod that the new docking connector will have it’s real use. Just MHO

but if you purchase a newer ipod you wont need this adapter because you have already sold your old ipod with all its accessories such as car charger. why would anyone keep their old ipods accessories if they bought a newer one.
