Sure, they're technically unnecessary, but if you like keeping your iPhone in eyesight while you waste away at your desk, you're going to want a dock. But not just any dock. The Elevation Dock ($60-$150). Precision machined from solid, Mac-matching aluminum, the Elevation Dock employs a special low-friction connection, heftiness, and tacky rubber feet to securely stay put when it's time to move the phone from the dock back to your pocket, offers a movable support pad to accomodate encased devices, and comes in a variety of finishes, including standard glass bead-blasted silver, anodized matte black, and limited edition LimeGreen or SunOrange.
Sure, it's got a funny name, but the Cosmonaut ($25) is no joke when it comes time to use your iPad. Designed from the ground up to be a perfect stylus — and therefore not constrained to a pen-like body — the Cosmonaut features a thick rubber body that's comfortable to grip and a tip that glides smoothly across the screen (That's what she said?). Available with Aluminum or Wood bottom trim.
