Why is it everywhere!? Why don’t companies make stuff for the rest of us? Well, it doesn’t matter with dockBoss+. dockBoss+ is a cable that connects your non-iPhone to Apple’s 30-pin connector. It plugs into your phone’s (any phone, not just Androids) audio jack and mini USB port on one end and acts as the female 30-pin connector on the other end. Pretty sweet if you already own iPhone-specific hardware or have your eye on a thumping iPhone speaker or have a 30-pin connector in your car. We live in an iPhone world whether we like it or not. $US30 when it comes out on September 28. [CableJive via Geeky Gadgets]
