    CNN i-phone 5 complaints

    2. Lightning dock connector


    The tech world is nothing if not full of change. But many longtime Apple users are irked at the company's decision to use a smaller connector port, called Lightning, on the iPhone 5 and new iPods. With one fell swoop, that meant both a need for new power cords and that the new products won't connect with older speaker systems, alarm clocks and other accessories.

    The fix? A $29 adapter (which costs $39 if you want a new cable with it). And even then, the adapter doesn't support video or the "iPod out" function for transmitting some data from the devices.
    "Day 3 of having the new iPhone and I already lost the power cord #thanksapple," wrote one Twitter user.
    "It's time to gouge our customers for a ton more money," Disqus commenter dawsg4ever quipped.

    A Lightning-to-USB cable costs $19 and, according to Apple's website, currently has a one- to two-week wait time to be shipped.

    My brother in law got his i5 today and we were looking at that plug. My micro USB from my gs2 wouldn't fit. Leave it to Apple to have to have something different. My HP pad, s2, gf's HTC one are all interchangeable.

    First glance I thought that's what it was. Didn't know about the plug controversy till after.

    It's a cult, without a doubt. Call 'em what you want, Cro MacNons, AppleZombies, whatever.

    That's them, fer sure.
