Quick Note: Apple Finally Begins Shipping Lightning Adapters for iPhone 5

Weeks later, Apple is shipping its expensive 30-pin Lightning adapters
Apple announced the iPhone early last month
with its new 8-pin Lightning dock connector, it seemed like a no-brainer that Apple would have a hefty supply of
Lightning to 30-pin Adapters
on hand to appease the masses. After all, Apple's decision to ditch its 9-year old 30-pin dock connector meant that customers wouldn't be able to use their existing accessories without an adapter on the iPhone 5.
Inexplicably, Apple was unable to deliver the adapters at launch even though the decision to use Lightning surely didn’t occur overnight. But nearly four weeks after the iPhone 5's release, Apple is just now getting around to shipping the adapters to customers.
reports that a few Australian customers have received shipping notifications and an estimated delivery date of October 9 for the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
Apple's standard Lightning to 30-pin Adapter costs $29. Apple is also charging $10 more for a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter that includes an 8" cable if you need some extra length.

So much to say about a product you are not buying

Glancing through these comments it seems most of the commentators neither own Apple products, like Apple products, like Apple customers or intend to buy the cable in question.
All this puff and indignation
about a cable someone else is buying!

Some people have trouble staying quiet while they see the powerful take advantage of the ignorant.
