As we wait, almost bubbling over with excitement, the folks over in Cupertino are bustling around preparing for this Friday's anticipated iPhone 5 launch.

iPhone Alley will be taking a break from its usual coverage of iPhone-related events, and instead will be offering a piece of advice to any thieves or thieves-in-training. If you're planning to perform a ram-raid, it's advised your plans don't in anyway involve the use of a luxury automobile.

The introduction of the new iPhone 5 dock, dubbed Lightning, understandably caused a widespread panic among the public. The issue: whether the iPhone 5 would be able to be used with older accessories engineered to work with the now ancient 30-pin dock connector.

Although meant to rectify the aforementioned issue, the adapter won't, in fact, work with many older accessories.
One of the biggest players in the case industry for pretty much any mobile device you could possibly lay a finger on has taken a bite into the newly-introduced iPhone 5 market with the announcement of four cases.
