My first iPod came today (the nano, black wit 8GB) but the thing is, it came with this dock adapter looking thing which I have no clue what to do with.

It also didn't come with a dock so I was wondering is it worth it to have a docking station or not? If so should I get the universal dock (http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?mco=F04326F1&nplm=MB125G/A) or just the iPod nano (http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?mco=C2927E54&nplm=MA594G/A) one?

The docking adapter is so it'll fit the universal dock.

So should I just get the universal dock or the iPod nano dock?

Or just stick with a usb?

It's your call. The dock doesn't really offer you any additional benefit over the cable only - only that it'll store your iPod vertically rather than having to lay it flat.

The only real advantage is if you were wanting to connect your iPod to a stereo.

I was just wondering, do you have the dock adapter?

I have a dock, but only because back when I bought my 3G iPod they still included the dock for free. So when I bought my 1st gen Nano, I just use the same dock. I don't think i would have bought a dock if i hadn't got one included. And yes, I do have the dock adapter, it came with my 1st gen nano.
