my iPod touch has a Dock

iPod touch on iPod Dock

Finally, I got a Dock for my iPod touch. Thanks to Jimmy from Taiwan, he helped me acquired a prior version of the Universal Dock released in 2006, Apple iPod AV Connection Kit. This is not the new Apple Universal Dock released in October 2007.

(more photos and why I bought the superceded model follow...)

Now, there's the main reason I bought the previous version of the Dock: (to Don) Antony is poor.

The new Universal Dock comes with one Universal Dock and one Apple Remote. If you want to have video out, you will need to buy either Apple Component AV Cable (higher quality) or Apple Composite AV Cable, where both of them include one Power Adapter.
And the Apple iPod AV Connection Kit (the one I bought) simply includes one Universal Dock, one Apple Remote, one Power Adapter and one AV Cable (Composite) for video and audio output. (Please refer to the last photo in this blog entry.) It also has an S-video out but requires a separate S-video cable.

The now outdated iPod AV Connection Kit turns out cheaper than the current Apple Universal Dock. And because it is being replaced by the new accessories, the price is less then one third (1/3) of the current Universal Dock and Composite AV Cable combined. (to Don, this concludes that Antony is poor.)

Here are the photos of the iPod AV Connection Kit. The plastic wrap is a bit dirty, but it is new.

It is good to have iPod standing up. The InvisibleShield on the iPod touch do not affect the usage of the Universal Dock.

To Antony, I would have built the dock myself out of tinfoil and duct tape. This concludes that Don is poorer than Antony.

Poverty has nothing to do with it Don, for all we know, Antony buys the goods, takes the photos, then takes his purchases back and gets a refund!!
We have a saying in the remote village, "The person who has a room full of electronic gadgets rarely has a candle when the power goes off."
I think that says a lot about life, don't you?

I don't take the items back for a refund often.
I am actually in the process of acquiring a second power backup device (UPS), which is planned for future blog entry. And in the remote village, there's no electricity. High class peasants use nature lighting, and power generated from steam.
