A place for your iPod to take a nap

Is the 'Load Thing' totally useless?


Now this is what we like--truth in advertising. Or truth in blogging, at least.

Apparently as weary of iPod docks as we are, Uber-Review is spot-on in its assessment of this accessory in saying it does "absolutely nothing." OK, it does let your iPod rest in a little red hammock while it recharges. But that's about it.

Even its German manufacturer seems to acknowledge its limited existence, having given it a suitably superficial name: the "Load Thing." Still, if there's one thing we appreciate as much as honesty, it's a low price. So we have to respect this item's $13 tag, even if it doesn't do anything.
