Didn’t the price used to be around $10? Or did I just not remember correctly…

Yeah but the price is a bit spicy! For a $1 more i could get another cable! (and it was 10 as i recall)

It wasn’t $10, it was always $16.95 (check the archives for July 8th).

I’ve upgraded from the 10 to the 20 then to the 30 GB, so I have a few firewire cables just lying around - plus the old car charger - so for me, this makes sense, rather than buying all new accessories.

My 15 giger is my first so to me this is a useless accessory.

It is better to buy a cable!

> It is better to buy a cable!

Well, I think the advantage is the small size. I’d rather carry this thing around than a bulky cable. And no matter where you go, you’ll almost always find a standard FW cable (at least at Mac places).

This would be incredibly useful, but its rather expensive for a device this simple, don’t ya’ll think so?

It is expensive but I imagine the royalties to Apple are not inconsiderable. Also, the money I poured into iPod accessories for the 1st and 2nd generation iPod’s will make this worth its cost. One car charger costs a lot more.

Ok, what I really really wish they had done was make a little converter that simply gives a line out (clean, unamplified)...that way you can use your ipod with stereos without needing to carry around the darn dock!
