And your solution is....?

microUSB?

At least if they want to obsolete existing accessories, go with something that customers can benefit from going forward.

There is some really lame excuse about then new connector having 8 pins. So far no-one has been able to come up with anything you can do with this new connector that you can't do with a microUSB connector. If there is some extra "signal" you need to transmit, it's a matter of using a protocol that can understand it on both ends.

But hey, it's all digital!! Uhm, and microUSB isn't?

But hey, you can plug it in any way!! Really? That is weak.
