Word on the street is that the video out function on the new line of iPods is locked if used in conjunction with old video cables and docks from third parties. Apparently, the new iPods will only work with cables featuring Apple’s authentication chip (read: official first party products and a handful of third party)[…] Thanks to mklopez for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
wealer: Yeah, but those new iPods are all so very nice. It’s really about time for me to trade up from my 1st Gen shuffle.
