Apple Getting Ready to Ditch the Dock Connector

Here's a post on iMore, which used to be The iPhone Blog (TIPB) claiming that Apple is getting ready to switch to a smaller connector/charging port in order to make more room for bigger batteries and newer batteries- most likely 4G LTE. I am really not a fan of the dock connector and welcome this change.  There is no technical reason that it needs to be as big as it is currently.
