Line out is not headphone out. I think the poster was asking why it doesn't get line out through the lightning connector. The answer is because the dock has no smarts - the headphone out is just passthrough.
  Huh? It's $170 cheaper than an iPad 4. What's the problem? If you are going to compare to a refurb iPad 3, then use the refurb iPad mini price to compare. Refurb iPad minis will likely be available before Christmas.   But all of that is moot. Apple doesn't mind if you buy an iPad mini or an iPad 3 - they make money either way. 
Subpixel rendering will also become useless as soon as you rotate the display 90 degrees - a common use case on a tablet.
216 ppi is probably not enough to call it Retina, but it'll be higher resolution than what the rumors are saying the iPad mini will be. We'll have to wait and see. That will put some pricing pressure on Apple, but they likely won't match it. I suspect it'll be 16GB for $299.
      I think you people need to learn some English. "Cum" basically means something that can take on two roles. For example, a singer-cum-actress is someone who can sing and act. It's a real word. Look it up.
On Apple's store right now: USB to 30pin cable: $19. Also, USB to Lightning cable: $19. WTF are you talking about?   And even if it was more, of course they should pass that cost on to us. They're a for-profit business.   If cloners "find a way around this," good for them. Use their products at your own risk. There's a reason I don't use 30-pin cables and chargers from the dollar store today - I don't trust them. I'll buy name brand, and I will in the future.
I was working at 14 years old stocking shelves in a store in Canada. 5 hour shifts on weekday evenings, 9 hour shifts on weekends.
  The reality is that Apple makes far more revenue and profit from iOS devices than Macs.   Although I am in agreement in that I'd like to see new Mac desktops too.
  I don't see anything in Apple's marketing about the iPod Nano shipping with voice recording software.     Skype is a third party app. You might as well complain that Apple doesn't ship the iCade accessory free because some third party apps support it.   FaceTime is video conferencing software. There's no audio-only mode. There's absolutely no intended use case of you using FaceTime with the device in your pocket. Since you are holding it, you can use the microphone...
  You call him a troll and then use the word "cripple" just because it doesn't come with a feature you wish it did? This is not crippling. Crippling would be if they included the headset and remote, and disabled it until you paid them to "unlock" it. Saying people are using it as a phone isn't helping your case either. People using it as a poor man's iPhone should be surprised that they have to pay a little extra to do so, especially given that it costs $400 less than an...
