In the days since the iPad's announcement, there's been no end to the number of questions about what it can do and how it works. One of the questions I had was how many icons would fit in the iPad's dock. Most of the demos and screen shots show four icons, but surely with all that extra screen real estate it should be able to fit more. As it turns out, the iPad actually allows up to six icons in the dock, a whopping two more than the iPhone.
It's not much, but it's progress!
On Monday, accessory outfitter RadTech announced the introduction of its Dock Extender Apple Dock 30-pin Male to 30-pin Female cable, which allows you to dock your iPod or iPhone from a distance, or while in a case. The cable provides connection pathways for power, audio output, USB data sync, play controls, accessory power and composite video but does not support S-video output or input for recording audio.
Need something to hold up your iPhone or iPod touch but don't feel like spending a pile of money for it? If you're the DIY type then you might want to check this out.

Docks for the iPhone 3G were not available in the boxes as the original iPhones were packages, and it's been a slight hassle for those of us accustomed to using a dock. The old docks don't fit with the new iPhones, and there were no adapters available. Someone in the HardMac forums has an answer, though.
Wish you had a dock for that iPhone 3G but not willing to dish out the $29 for a piece of white plastic? Flickr user mdrengl decided he didn't want to either. Instead, he modified his old iPhone dock to work with the 3G. If you don't mind carving into your dock with a knife, then check out the instructions after the break.
After the iPhone 3G went on sale this Friday, Apple dropped the price of its über stylish Bluetooth Headset. Previously priced at a whopping $130, the headset has dropped $30 in price to a round $100 even. Why the drop in price? It wasn't because Apple finally realized it was over-priced. Instead, they've decided to remove that oh-so-useful dual-dock from the package. They do include the "travel cable" though, which charges and pairs the headset. If you would like to purchase the dock separately, it's available from Apple for - get this - $49.
JVC has just announced the availability of the NX-PN7, one of the coolest docking stations we've seen yet. It is both Made for iPod and Works with iPhone and can comfortably charge any two iDevices at once, making it perfect for those of you looking for somewhere to put that old iPod. On top of that, it combines a stereo, docking station, and AM/FM radio, and an alarm clock all in one. It even has two glowy strips underneath each iPod / phone that can be programmed to glow any of nine colors, and has a remote control with an iPod-esque clickwheel on it.
