Amazon Germany is evil: They mistreat temporary workers, avoid to pay social insurance contributions and tax and even use Neo-Nazis (via 3rd party security companies) to intimidate the temp workers... Boycott Amazon!

I glad to see the price of these things coming down but I'm worried that there might not be enough profit margin for apple after all it must cost at least 5 cents to manufacture these cables, how will Apple maintain their profitability?

The aftermarket ones that are sold on eBay do not last long, I've gone through 3 of them in about 5 weeks. the connecters are loose, and after use they stop charging completely or need to be manipulated to continue charging. Rather just buy a reputable brand if not OE at apple and save the hassle and headache.
