Dave Winer’s Supposed Cable Conspiracy

Dave Winer:

I’ve heard from people who were at the Jobs presentation this week that there was a wire connecting his cell phone to something. I can’t tell you myself, because I am not allowed to attend Apple press events. If I were there, I would tell you.

Jobs specifically called attention to the cable during the keynote, explaining that it was a custom rig that allowed the display from his iPhone to be mirrored to the big screen on stage.

The iPhone’s software certainly isn’t complete, but the prototypes apparently work as advertised. David Pogue even has video of one in action, no cables attached.
