    I know Apple had to change the reflective black one because of the icon moving feature, but come on Apple my iMac can change icons and they say iPod Touch/ iPhone runs OS X so give me back my black sexy reflective dock back! What do you guys think? Is that too much for apple to figure out?

    I think the reflective dock disappeared with the 1.1.3 software update.

    Shame really as it looked a lot nicer than the iPhone dock now in the sofotware.

    I think it was the original iPod Touch dock (the thing that held the 4 icons on the bottom) before they adopted the iPhones dock.

    I loved the reflective dock and I really wish they would give us some Settings pane to chose out of a few pre-loaded docks! I think they took it out so the dock would be displayed more prominently and you would be able to tell which row was the dock (aka stand out more).

    The old dock had to be changed because the reflections were part of the background bitmap. As soon as you got the ability to re-arrange icons they had to remove that optical trick.

    I really liked that Dock!
    It was the only thing that made the iPod touch and the iPhone distinguishable.
    :(

    Thing is that they could easily add the old dock back, i mean coverflow in Music has reflections under album arts, so they could have had a dynamic reflective dock rather than an image which they probably had in the first place, before icons were movable.

    I'm sure iPhone users would agree that the reflective dock was nicer too though, why not make that standard across both platforms?
