Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones, but I’m not entirely sure if that applies here. The Sendstation iPod PocketDock Combo is a pretty good solution for those of you who have lost your propriety iPod sync cables, or don’t want to lug that around with you when you go travelling (in case you might lose or break it).
There really isn’t much to this device. You plug it into the dock on the bottom of your iPod, and on the other side of the PocketDock are a pair of ports: one for USB 2.0 and the other for Firewire. What this means is that you can now use any of those readily available cables to connect your favourite glossy white music player to your computer.
If you need further instructions, you won’t find any because there aren’t any manuals in the package, but if you think you need a booklet for this thing, you shouldn’t be using an iPod. Like, seriously.
The Sendstation iPod PocketDock Combo is available now for about $29 USD.
