You know that iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter that you wasted money on? Yeah, turns out there's probably a superior alternative available in the wilds of China... well, aside from the fact that it probably lacks an internal authentication chip needed to play back most protected content. Noosy's iPad HDMI output adapter is fairly simple in design -- it plugs into the 30-pin Dock Connector that's on modern iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, and then allows 720p content to flow directly over HDMI. We're guessing there's just a VGA-to-HDMI converter wrapped inside a familiar package, but we definitely like where this is headed. There's nary a word on how much this will cost you (or what street corner you need to visit in order to find one), but here's hoping the engineers in Cupertino are paying attention to what consumers are really after.
