Yes you can get most/all of the functionality via a cable and MAYBE via an adapter (adapters do not always give you 100% of the functionality) but the loss of the gain antenna... that is huge.

I do love the statement from apple - "its been good to us" why change it? Their was no need whatsover except to be able to sell new cables and a slew of adapters.

Damn you apple... now when can i place my order... LOL
