35 dollars for the cable? Holy **** Apple truly are the worst. They told reviewers of the Beats Solo Pro that it would be in the 20 dollar range. And then it comes out at 35. Hahahaha.

What is wrong with the colour in that first photo? Colours seem distorted, or is that the actual design?

And Apple needs a headshake around cable design. I don't understand why they stick with the smooth surfaces on the part of the cable you're supposed to grip? There's minimalist design, and then there's poor design.

New Camo Collection.
It is in the first sentence, pal. ;)

Why are the Studio 3 still the only Apple product that uses micro-USB to charge? Ugh.
