The 30 pin to 9 pin adapter from Apple...
Is anyone else extremely disappointed in the adapter Apple created? Maybe it's just me, but I was expecting what looked like a "Lightning" cable on one side (same width and look as the USB cable) and then an expanded bottom for the 30 pin connector. Basically a capital T upside down. I was really surprised and disappointed with what they put together and $30 - thanks, Apple, I won't be able to sit down for a week.
Also, before anyone else starts - I know there will be a variety of 3rd party adapters in many different styles and prices... Just wanted to see what everyone else thought of the adapter...

I have been loading off buying an docking station as I figured that the speculation that adapters would be ten bucks were far too good to be true. After seeing the ridiculous thirty dollar price tag, I am glad I held off and will wait until third-party adapters are available and will just listen to my music through that beautiful lil' buggers tiny speakers.

FOUND: Cheap iPhone 5 Lightning Adapter - Business Insider
There are now 3rd party adapters and cables for the iphone 5 for $10. Much cheaper than the $30/$19 respectively at Apple. No reviews yet, obviously, so hopefully they work well.
