While not necessarily ideal for every situation (what if you wanted to play a motion controlled game while charging?) Bluelounge’s new MiniDock is a simple solution if you’ve ever had to (worriedly) leave your iPhone or iPod sitting on the floor while taking advantage of an available outlet.
It replaces the USB <-> dock connector cable with a miniature docking cradle that perches your iDevice right next to the outlet. Not only does it keep it off the ground where it can get stepped on, or off a desk where it could fall, but it also allows for hands-free usage in certain situations. Like say when used above a kitchen counter for listening to music, or watching recipe videos, while cooking. And it’s available in US, UK and EU versions, for just $19.95.

1/2 of me thinks this is pretty useful.
1/2 of me thinks this is bad design due to the forces to be exerted when “docking” the devices. wouldnt it pull right out of the wall? or only part way and be even worse?
all in one 🙂
