Corporate greed = exploitative crap.

Silly and pointless.  iPods, while stylish, are NOT furniture or a furnishing.

This new product looks much nicer in person than the low-res web photo.  I particularly like the gray stones.  I would like to see it in solid white, also.

This is just dumb.

Let’s see…I enter my office, unclip my ipod from my belt, take it out of my case, reach across my desk, and insert my ipod in this picture frame “dock” that does nothing but hold it next to a picture of my wonderful family.  It does not charge my battery, it does not provide speakers for the music, it does not network to AirTunes/Airport Express.  It just sits there—like a rock.

If I am lucky my ear bud cord is long enough to reach across my desk so I can listen to music.  Heaven forbid that I have to lean one direction or the other to reach for something for fear of yanking the buds out of my ears.  Hmm…maybe they ought to put a belt clip on the thing.  smile

Must be “stupid idea day”. Lump this along with that absurd CD ripping “service”, which I think would be more aptly called the “CD ripoff service”.

“looks crap, the kind of tack only americans would buy!”


Perhaps there was some intent of tongue-in-cheekness, but you gotta realize there are tacky folks the world over. Okay, so maybe more so here and in Canada, but still…

These things are so useless. What purpose does this serve?

I think this thing looks pretty good.  I usually bring have to put my ipod on top of my CPU in the office and end up leaving it behind many nights.  This looks more interesting than the regular dock.

“Looks Crap”? Sounds like the broken english used by so many American wantabes.

I think it’s classy.  I would put it next to my computer and plug in to my music at work.  I like the CD holder…I’m always burning discs and need a place to keep them.  It looks very functional.  I would keep my paper clips and keys in the trays. Good idea.

Oh yeah, and that Dual Cavity configuration is perfect for holding chips and dip!

Jeez, for $70 I’d rather buy a Vaja case than this dust collector.
