    Could apple have made thencharging cord longer? Or am I the only one with this problem? I just wish it was a longer cord that's all.

    Yeah, it's a little short. I looked for some new ones but all I found were the same length. I'm sure you can get longer ones online. I never looked.

    Or, one can get a USB extension cable with proper connectors on each end.

    I agree that this cable is too short. There is a six foot one on Amazon.com for like $8. Here is the link to it.
    Amazon.com: Extra Long 6 Foot (6ft) iPhone / iPod USB Charge and Sync Cable, Double the Length of the Standard Cord: Electronics

    I ordered this one Amazon.com: Extra Long Black iPod / iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPhone 4 USB Charge and Sync Cable, More Than Double the Length of the Standard Cord - 2m (6.5ft) Long. UPDATE: NOW FITS IPHONE 4 BUMPER AND ALL OTHER CASES: Electronics from Amazon. I know its prolly $$ than ebay but was lazy and didnt look. It works great for charging but does not work for syncing.

    I just looked at it again and the downside is that its not through Amazon anymore, its through a 3rd party and its $3 somethin for shipping.

    I personally like the shorter cord, I usually charge it off my car stereo or off my digital picture frame/iPod player/alarm clock

    I've tried a USB extender and it didn't work.

    The short cord is an annoyance as every other charger I've had has been 5 or 6 feet. The three foot cord is convenient if it's hooked to a computer but in most other settings a longer cord is needed. Cheap move by apple. I bought a longer one for $5 on Amazon, but I was not happy about having to do so.

    Look for the longer cords on Amazon or Buy.com. I use the ones from buy.com for charging and have not had an issue. Here is the link Click Me. Right now they have free shipping, just pickup two more.
