The iPad may be known for its sleek design, but that doesn't mean you can't shake things up a bit with a super gaudy, overly detailed dock.
I wish this was a robot in a suit with an iPad head that would listen to my problems and respond with an appropriately emotionical face and soothingly bionic voice. It is not!
Most docks just play music. That's so vanilla! Pair your iWhatever with the TimeCommand dock and the accompanying app and you can dim your f-ing lamp from your phone. And set lamp-assisted alarms with back-up battery insurance.
