iPhone's Not-So-Universal Dock Connector
One of the unfortunate things that I discovered when I purchased my iPhone is that none of my old iPod dock connectors worked. Turns out that the friendly folks at Apple decided to jigger the electronics within the connector, rendering old connectors incompatible with the iPod nano 4G; iPod touch 2G; iPhone 3G and presumably future models. So now all of my old chargers are obsolete. Thanks to Scoshe for creating an adapter, but at $25, it is almost as much as buying a whole new charger. Meh.
