If you're like most people, you stopped using docks back when Apple stopped including them with iPods. That's exactly why we were so pleasantly surprised when we saw the Bluelounge Saidoka lightning charger for iPhone. It actually looks useful!

The dock works like any other dock—plug in your phone and it charges—but it gives the phone a posture that lets it double as a calculator, Twitter feed, or whatever. You can buy one in black or white on Amazon for $50, though be forewarned that a few Amazon reviewers have some mundane complaints about the design. Regardless, this laid back dock beats just tossing your phone on your desk. [bltd]
