Ever plugged your gadget into someone else's computer for a quick charge and helplessly watched as your data started to sync? It's an annoyance and wastes time, but with the Sync Blocker cable it's optional.

I really like and understand the idea behind this product. I think the product would be more successful with an apple's connection not micro usb though.

My ipod is the only product I have that does that. I hate the fact that anytime I plug it in it starts itunes.

Speaking of itunes, I would really like it if apple created like an itunes lite. The only things I use itunes for are to create playlists, sync music, and buy music. I don't care about any of the other crap.
