Apple uses Lightning to refer to the connector format on newer iOS devices. The technology was introduced with the iPhone 5 in September, and allows for small, reversible adapters, as opposed to the wide, single-sided 30-pin ones Apple has had since the early iPod days. The last device to use the 30-pin style was the third-generation iPad, which has since been supplanted by a Lightning-equipped fourth-gen model.
Lightning.com is a parked page held by Bruce Davies of Tampa, Florida since 1997. Guess Bruce hit the jackpot today.
