Ever find yourself wishing your
iPad iPad 2
was free from the fickle whims of wireless internet connections? Neither do we -- but, if you're the cable-dependent type, your prayers may not go unanswered for much longer. Redpark (who gave the iPhone an RJ-11 dongle
) has created the Console Cable with the ubiquitous 30-pin Apple connector on one end and an RJ-45 plug on the other. The $69 device is used in conjunction with a $9.99 Get Console app to allow Cisco
engineers to use their iDevice of choice to perform maintenance out in the field. Cable and app are exclusively compatible with Cisco
devices, however, so no Ethernet
on the iPhone... yet. It's only a matter of time before someone makes it happen -- your move, hackers.
