Griffin Simplifi

The Good The Griffin Simplifi lets you dock your iPod or iPhone in style, while throwing in a 3-in-1 Flash memory card reader and two bonus USB ports.

The Bad The Simplifi is expensive, lacks audio and video outputs, supports only a few memory card options, and in no way transfers Flash-stored media to your iPod.

The Bottom Line The Griffin Simplifi doesn't do much for the price, but it may appeal to style-conscious clutter cutters.

Griffin Simplifi

The Griffin Simplifi ($79) is a USB-connected dock for Apple's iPod and iPhone that offers an integrated Flash memory card reader. To be clear, the Griffin Simplifi doesn't let you import or export files directly between Flash cards and your iPod, it simply consolidates a USB card-reader and iPod dock into a single, attractive device.

You really can't make an iPod dock look sexy. By their nature, products such as the Griffin Simplifi aren't prized for their looks, but for their capability to declutter a desktop in the least offensive way possible. That said, the block of curved aluminum and white plastic making up the Griffin Simplifi does a nice job of blending in with Apple's Mac line-up.

The top of the Griffin Simplifi offers a universal dock compatible with Apple's iPod and iPhone (including the iPhone 3G). Six pop-out plastic adapters are included with the Griffin Simplifi to ensure a snug fit for your iPod or iPhone.
