iPod Shuffle owners no longer have to feel like second-class citizens of the iPod nation. Though the Shuffle's tiny size has led to some interesting accessories (my favorite is the headgear) there hasn't been a convenient way to enjoy all the iPod docks and boom boxes out there. Griffin Technology's dock adapter solves that little problem; just slide your second-generation Shuffle onto this little piece of plastic and metal and the whole thing comfortably sits in any universal iPod dock connector. A switch lets you toggle between playback and charge/sync modes. So who's laughing now, Mr. 80-gigabyte-iPod?
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
