The Mini Dock doesn’t look bad and I like the way it tilts it up but it would be better if it actually docked the pod and provided a line out jack.

One thing you guys aren’t giving them credit for is that they actually are paying attention to the consumer. Very few businesses do that.

Until the iPod can be docked for charging and line out audio, I fail to see a use for this product.  As I stated when the rocks were introduced, why not just use Apples dock?  Keep trying guys, add some power and line out, and you might sell a few.

Thanks Scot for the positive words and recognizing that we’re trying to listen. Thanks too for the recommendations—we can respond to actionable suggestions and will investigate if there’s a way to integrate line/audio out. 

Dawntreader, if you’re comfortable using your firewire/USB cable, I think you’ll find that our Micro dock is pretty useful sync’ing or charging solution.  It’s also less expensive than the Apple dock.

Here’s some background on how I use the product.  If it’s useful, great.  If not then take it for what it cost you:)

I own several Apple cradles and use them throughout my house to connect my iPod to my different receivers, but I use our stand at my desk. I don’t use a line out since I use my computer to listen to music.  I connect my USB cable to charge & sync.  I used to use an Apple dock at my desk but it didn’t work well for me because I sometimes hold my iPod after syncing to make sure I got everything or to modify settings.  With the Apple stand, I had to either disconnect or pick up the stand.  With our stand, it’s easier to pick up and set down the iPod since it’s aways connected to a cable.

Thanks again to those of you who make suggestions that we can use to build a better product.
