Well, witness the wealth of iPod docks, when that 30-pin connector was still a common thing ... there does seem have been a psychological angle there.

I never understood how that worked... (30 wires in that one cord? Unless there's a parallel to serial converter in the connector...?)

It was just a bunch of different cables all on the same connector: pinouts.ru/PortableDevices/ipod_pinout.shtml (L/R in/out, s-video, composite, USB, Firewire, some other things)

Pretty. Apple likes pretty.

Like their first display, it was designed so there would be one cable between it and the computer. Power and signal both through it, much prettier than two separate cables.

I guess it worked too. My mom hates when cables are visible for household electronics, and always tries to hide them as much as possible. If there are less visible cables, the product will attract more people.
