I remember this being mentioned a while ago.

I agree, nothing will happen. Apple will fight it and drag it through all the courts.

What is standard now? It's USB-C isn't it but even that it's only few new ones. Some others use micro usb. Again, no standard as such - just a variation of USB

Yes they're the mutts nuts, but are open to hacking. Someone very clever has worked out a way to use that cable to pwn any device that can connect to it. Read it on one of the tech forums this morning.

Apple will not yield to this pressure from the EU, and I dont see how the EU can enforce it, it's their IP, and they can market that how they see fit, including non-standardised cables.

Not the fault of the cable though is it? The device on the end of it can be hacked but not possible to hack the cable ;)

The last time "they" tried to force Apple to adopt standard phone charging sockets, Apple simply said their iPhones were PDA's and completely ignored them. What's in a name, eh?
