I hate to see my brand new 80GB iPod sitting on its back. i think it looks much better sitting up for everyone to see. but i honestly hate the apple dock. my iPod is black, the dock is white, the two just dont go together. it would be cooler if the dock was black, and ive been debating getting some spray paint and 'moding' my dock. even then its just a plain simple brick that just doesnt seem cool to me. i would accept something that i just sat my iPod on, doesnt have to hook to the computer or anything. i want to use it at work where i sit and do engineering design/CAD work all day. although if the dock is cool enough i would get a second one to hook up to my computer at my apt! the only thing extra i would want on it would be power so i could run the backlight all the time while it sits at my desk, just so i could glance down and see the artist/title and album art. is there anything like this on the market? all the docks i seem to be funning across now all have like video and audio and all these extra controls built into them to hook up to TVs and stereos. i dont care about that, i just want something that looks cool!
