iPhone Dock Makes Syncing Stylish
There are a lot of iPhone and iPod docks that provide speakers or connect to bigger sound systems. But for a link to your computer, you're often stuck with the USB cable that snakes around the top of your desk.
The Vapor Dock by Elementcase is a cool looking aluminum block that that provides a charge and sync connection as well as an air chamber that amplifies sound from the iPhone's or iPod touch's speakers. Another neat feature: It fits the devices whether they are in a protective case or "naked."
The dock comes in bare aluminum or a black finish. It is a bit pricey — $120 from the company's web site. But that compares favorably with most accessories at the Apple store.
