Security for virtualized datacentres

It's not only the iPhone 4S that will ship on 14 October - so too will Apple's long-promised dock-to-micro-USB adaptor.

Punters eager to "use third-party micro USB cables and chargers to sync or charge your iPhone" will be able to do so for a mere consideration of £8.

Apple micro USB adaptor for iPhone

Apple promised in February 2011 that it would add micro USB compatibility to the iPhone during the course of the year.
