Such discord! Is anyone getting any reading done?
Last weekend told myself that I was not going to play the android - iphone thing when new phone was released. FAILED.
Want to get back to audiobooks, mountain of crossword puzzles that have grown over last week (why does MR not have a crossword folder -- such fun for wordies. -- what wonderful things these puzzles are) and yes ebooks. Does the zealot Holymadness read about things other than apple? What does Crusader read?
2 interesting things i found while tech reading, and then no more of this tech fighting for me right here...
Why lightning and not MicroUSB?
Its technical: that connector isn’t smart enough
. It has only 5 pins: +5V, Ground, 2 digital data pins, and a sense pin, so most of the dock connector functions wouldn’t work – only charging and syncing would. Also, the pins are so small that no current plug/connector manufacturer allows the 2A needed for iPad charging.
Why so much for the adapters?
Also technical. hidden away inside each 30-pin adapter is a digital-to-analog converter
(DAC) that converts the Lightning connector’s digital audio signal to an analog version. (The inclusion of a DAC explains at least part of the price of the adapters.)
Ok...you can tune back into Holymadness now.
