Maplins, Jervis Street [Dublin 1] . Almost 33 EUR for a non-Apple iPhone cable. Apple cables are already horrendously priced at 19 EUR from re-sellers. See also an adapter for lightning to 30-pin is more expensive…. go figure. Is it to make people buy the [Apple] cable? PS Not buying, just browsing (for the inevitable “so don’t buy it / don’t shop there” comments
