  • Apple iPod shuffle Dock

If you've purchased more than a couple of USB peripherals, at one time or another you've received an extra USB cable that bears a male connector on one end and a female connector on the other. Some hardware vendors toss these USB extender cables into the box if they suspect the supplied standard USB cable (one attached to a keyboard, for example) may not be long enough for your liking. If you've yet to find a use for one of these cables, you have one now: Save yourself $29 by using that cable rather than the iPod shuffle Dock.

To be fair, the iPod shuffle Dock has this going for it: It's the same color as the shuffle, it has a nice non-skid surface on the bottom, and it does provide a tidy way to mount and show off your iPod. Other than that, however, it's no different than the USB extender cable you've shoved into the bottom drawer of your desk.--Christopher Breen
