Ok, ok, it's not exactly news that there is Apple gear being sold on the Internet. But given that popular electronic accessory retailer Monoprice recently decided to stop selling Apple accessories, you might be looking for a new place to buy your cords and hookups. That's right -- TUAW contacted Monoprice the other day after a few readers reported that they couldn't buy iPhone and iPod-related gear, and Monoprice confirmed that it has "decided to suspend offering these products as part of our business plan. We will let you know if and when we resume selling these products. Truly sorry for any inconvenience it may cause you."
Bummer. Fortunately, we also received word earlier this week that competitor Cable Wholesale is selling unofficial Apple gear, and their prices look to be competitive if not at least equal to the cheap costs that led us to Monoprice in the first place. Even if you don't want to buy from them, but still need an AV cable or a car charger without paying through the nose for official products, there are still sites online selling what you need.
