On the iPad, it doesn't matter which side the headphone jack is on, because you can just rotate it so the jack is on whichever side you prefer. On the iPhone / iPod touch, you are stuck with the jack where it is, because they don't rotate vertically.
Some docks have built-in speakers. Some docks provide charging. Docks also hold the device in the proper position for viewing hands-free. Plugging it in and laying it down doesn't work for all situations.why do you need to dock these devices? just plug them in and lay them down
No, I hated the earphone jack on the bottom of the iPhone. I'm glad its on the top.
When you are charging it and it is plugged there are cords coming from the top and bottom. I like it when cords are only coming from the bottom.
i think it makes much more sense to have all cords coming out from the same side.
what do you use when you want to use it in your car and you have a usb charger outlet and an aux outlet? one wire out the top and one out the bottom? that would suck
