    Currently i am using composite cable made by apple, Over priced around $50. it cost less than $5 to manufacture in bulk.

    So does anyone have suggestion (if allowed by this site) to cheaper cable from other site? Reason i am asking is because i read somewhere that 3rd genration has some chip inside cable end that goes to ipod touch to authenticate and i dont want ot get somethign that may now work.

    Check out your local electronics store. there must be 1000 of "noname" cables out there. In germany you get get great "no name" products for the apple devices
