    Not exactly sure about this cause Apple has some patents on this. I'm worried that they won't be allowed to ship.

    P.S. I would love to have this, but backing it without knowing if they will even be allowed to ship is too big of a risk. We have the technology to do this for years, but Apple is a bitch.

    This is exactly why it hasn't been done before. Both on mobile phones and on other laptops.

    I like the idea, but would be annoyed at having to remove the adapter plug any time I wanted to connect my phone to a computer or car stereo.

    You don't need to remove it...just stick a Znaps adapter on the end of the USB cable that you use with the computer or car stereo.
