Luckily, that advantage goes away in one month when the USB forum should release the new Type-C connector. Of course, it will take some time to get to market(probably 6 months before we see them). The REALLY cool part is that the new USB rivals HDMI 1.4 in throughput and also carries up to 20V.
Yeah it's proprietary bullshit but it is far superior in application.
I'm no apple fanboy but the cable is much easier to use.
