    cool but..

    yes this is cool, Because once again Apple screwed its loyal consumers by changing their own standards... and Beleive me.. I have plenty of docks and accessories that charge my iPod, but not my iPhone..... but a brand new dock costs $30. An adapter for an old dock cost $40. Can't see the value for this
