    Like on the mac. Why don't they make it like this for the iPHone.

    I think it'd be great.

    They'd have to revise the little connector slot on the bottom of the device, so it matches the charger.

    Why? Just leave it the way it is. Unless it can transfer data with the cable then sure.
    Until then what wrong with the current version now?

    why couldn't u transfer data. simply instead of clicking and locking into place it would be magnetic. Safer for the device. I guess its so u can't disconnect during a transfer.

    not rly safer but i guess less fragile would be nice for the magsafe on the all the apple laptops it a series of 5 dots surrounded by a magnet guess it could work but would be kinda annoying when your ipod would stick to things

    well since apparently they are comming out with wireless sync and pretty much everybody should have a wireless router by now why not just make it like the charger that came out for the pre where you set just set it on it? ..

    Well, the reason my iPod Touch's bottom part (a bit above the dock connector) is scratched is because I failed at connecting it to my dock

    Eh, that would be silly no?
    Redesign a 30-pin so it's magnetic.
    The nice thing about it is that all iPod/iPhone model's use it besides the early iPods.
    Making it a very ease of access thing.
    That's what's apple's about.
