Submission + - Apple now shipping Lightning adapters (cnet.com)

hcs_$reboot writes: Apple started shipping the Lightning (iPhone 5 connector) to 30-pin adapters, that costs from $29 to $39. Some iPhone 5 owners complained about its new connector being incompatible with the previously well known 30 pin connectors (iPhone 4S and before, iPod, iPad, chargers, music combos...). And the adapter comes to the rescue...
However, considering the recent wave of disappointment engendered by the new Apple device (Maps, iOS6 bugs, lack of innovation, lack of staff motivation, etc...), some people may argue that what Apple really needs is a Cook to Jobs adapter...


Submission + - Movie about Steve Jobs (reelz.com)

hcs_$reboot writes: It is reported that Sony bought the rights to a biopic on the life of Steve Jobs with the intent of making a movie. The biography on which the movie would be based was written by former CNN chairman and current managing editor of Time magazine, Walter Isaacson (biography to be released October 24).
There are discussions about what could be the best title, and which actor would fit the best for the main role.
While the biography was approved by Mr Jobs, what about some other people who crossed Steve's life and who may not have always been portrayed in a friendly way in his other biographies (the most famous one being probably Bill Gates).
Is Sony able to provide an unbiased work, without having Steve Jobs around to make sure they do?

If bankers can count, how come they have eight windows and only four tellers?
