Speaking at an exclusive luncheon in Sydney for 30 Vodafone winners, former Apple official \"evangelist\" Guy Kawasaki said, he was \"disappointed\" by the company\'s decision to replace the connection slot on the new iPhone 5, forcing customers to buy new cables.
\"The thing about this connector, I think, is pure arrogance,\" Mr Kawasaki said . \".
\"They said \'We want to save space, how many pins are there from 30 pins to now \'.
OK, if the goal is really to save space, why don\'t you go to Micro USB like everyone else in the world, we can all get a cable at 711 for $5.
\"But no, you have to have a proprietary one.
