I plan on getting a 5.5G iPod soon, and I'm not super fond of the idea of it just laying on my really messy desk while its charging. Aside from the fact it could scratch/fall it doesn't look cool. Anyway... I was looking at iPod docks to enhance my setup but I just don't see the point. Sure the ability to hook the iPod to external speakers is great (i wouldnt use it a lot though) but don't you need an extra cable for that too? I only plan on using the iPod Dock to charge my iPod and I was wondering if it's really worth the money at all.
