It is all about the money. I do however wonder how Steve Jobs feels about profits from "made for i@#d" products going to fund his main competion? In the high cap dap market anyway. Its smart on Creative's end because if consumers like the x-fi dock, maybe they will look at a Creative player. Its a win-win, even if it pisses off geeks like us.

i think we can all stop worrying about ipods now. with the new iphone, which will only hold 4-8 gigabytes and cost about $400-500, i doubt apple will make alot of profit from it, and more companies will take advantage and release things better than the iphone.

Pffffft! As if!

I was just envisioning how a conversation would go (especially if I were part of it ):

iPod owner: Hey, check out these cool speakers I just got for my iPod!
Me: Hey, pretty nice! Who makes those?
iPod owner: Uhh... Some company called Creative.
Me: Reeeeeeeeally... Say, I've got something made by Creative as well! Wanna see it?

I had sent an e-mail to Creative requesting an adapter that could be used with ipod accessories because I wanted a docking station with wireless remote that I could use with my ZVM. They sent me a relpy stating that they had a docking station that did all this and gave me the link. It does all that I want but also has speakers attached. Not so bad but I was looking at just a docking station, no speakers. Don't know if I will spend $200 to get thhis one but they do have one. Here is the link.

the only thing i dont like about that dock is the battery thing.. to run the dock on batteries you have to use 8 C cell batteries but other then that i think it would be a good purchase

Actually their plan is ingenious, after a while people will start to associate the name Creative with good sound, then they see a player from Creative...and by then they are hooked.

Not so my man. Everyone knows that Crative makes some of the best sound cards around, but apparently this is not enough to draw the sheep in from pasture.
