iDockCover for iPod
WestShore Craftworks has announced the , a decorative iPod stand/dock cover that is made from selected hardwoods and available in a variety of finishes, including natural wood and high-gloss, brightly colored finishes. It fits over/around the iPod dock, while allowing the iPod to be docked normally (and charged/synced to a PC via the dock-based connection). Designed to fit all third-generation ("3G") and newer iPods (except the Shuffle), they are available in oval shapes as well as the newly released electric guitar shapes (shown at right, starting at $40). The company is also offering a MockDock, which can be instead of the original dock (but will not charge/sync the iPod). Prices for the MockDock start at $3, while prices for the iDockCover start at $15.
