The iPed Shuffle dock is actually kinda kewl, aesthetically.  The $17.99 price isn’t bad compared to the other dock solutions, though it DOES seem like one doesn’t get much for the money.  I mean, how much does it really cost to stamp and roll a piece of sheetmetal and bundle it with a white USB extension cable?

In all fairness to “flatline response” question-

You may want to think about the other (two) comparable items to the iPed shuffle in regards to their ACTUAL markup!  You may (will) find that our markup percentage is substantially less than theirs.

Here is just an example of their markup percentage! http://www.pcworld.com/resource/article/0,aid,119799,pg,1,RSS,RSS,00.asp

Secondly, good products
