My iPhone 3GS has 4 rows of Apps and the one row of locked apps as the bottom row. I think it's a 4 or 4S.

Not through the dock. This is a 30-pin dock. The iPod touch 5th gen uses the new Lightning doc.

The sound quality on this is REALLY good! If you turn it really loud on a track that has alot of bass (Dubstep) the unit will start to move around. But great sound!

Just want to let you folks at Woot know that your little joke in today's email with regard to Hurricane Sandy is no laughing matter. It is in very poor taste and you should remove it. There has been loss of life and the devastation here on the east coast is horrendous!

"I'd like to do something to help, but I'm so far away..."

"That's very thoughtful of you, Mortimer. There are several organizations doing work on the ground that you could donate to..."

"On the GROUND?"

"Yes, helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy."

"Oh no. I was talking about he victims of the Intergalactic Wars that I've reading about in this newspaper"

Very, very poor taste guys. I am contemplating posting these comments on face book. You have lost a fan here, and potentially many customers. You should retract and apologize.

So, not to wootjack this discussion, but since this is not for the iPhone 5, can anyone recommend a good quality iPhone 5 dock that allows you to use all the control features? The adapter they sell will not allow that with the older systems.

I got one of these last time around ... It is well built and not junky. Stereo separation is better then most of these type units. However the thing is ALL mids....unless you have an I pod touch and download the equalizer app which works decently..still middy though. It gets plenty loud w/o distorting and the bass is plenty and felt because of the separate sub woofer. I compared it to the Altec octiv 650 and the recent Onkyo offering they had on here( I have all three..don't ask). In all honesty the Altec sounds much better and is $20 bucks cheaper. Don't think it is better built then the sony but it has way better highs and a subwoofer and buttons to control the bass/treble eq which the Sony doesn't( unless you get the app). The stereo separation isn't as good as the Sony however and distorts a bit when it gets way too loud but is still room filling loud. The Onkyo ionly sbx 300 was pretty darn good too although it doesn't have a dedicated sub woofer it still sounded pretty darn good and looks to be a quality audio piece and built to last. Even w/o a subwoofer it easily holds it's own against the other two in overall sound quality and I think sounds better than the Sony. So Final opinion is a wash... if you like mids get the sony otherwise shop around. The other two I have are very good alternatives. I tested them all side by side and do consider myself a bit of an audio snob.

http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-SBX-300-iOnly-Music-System/dp/B005RF2ULA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352033049&sr=8-1&keywords=onkyo+ionly

the onkyo will probably boomerang around again on tech woot for under $100 again...

I've heard that Apple sells some really cool adaptors (Samsung Galaxy S3 commercial).

Vizio 32” 720p LCD HDTV (2 of them), Seagate 750GB SATA/300 7200RPM Hard Drive, SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Digital HDTV Tuner, Kodak Theater HD Player, Acer Aspire One 10.1” Netbook, Philips Prestigo 8-Device Universal Remote, Asus Eee PC 900 Netbook with 1.6GHz Atom Processor, Philips Upconverting DVD Player with DivX and HDMI, Ashley Rock Axe Full Size Rockband and Guitar Hero Controller for PS2 and PS3, Philips Icon 5 Device Universal Remote, and a bunch of other carp.

I've seen some decent ones but they cost around $400. You might be best to purchase an adaptor for around $50 to allow it to play (lacking some fratures) on standard docks.

Picked up one of these during the last offering. Long story short: maybe skip this one.

The sound is really kind of tinny and mediocre, even compared to other makers' similarly-priced boxes. Very disappointing for a Sony product. Add a little ore cash and buy the next dock up in the Sony line.

Not without some adapter, and I wonder if it will "perch" on the dock instead of being settled in firmly. Expect a LOT of "old style" units to go cheap real soon.
Thanks, Apple.

And I supposed there should be no benefit concerts because it's not time for singing?

It was a Woot-style pitch for money aimed at Wooters who will respond.

OTOH, here is a letter to TIME Magazine I emailed as soon as I got my current issue:

"Thank you for quickly publishing the photos of the horrendous and heartbreaking damage caused by hurricane Sandy.

For those who cannot empathize, try this: Fill a dishpan with water, salt, cooking oil and used coffee grounds. Then splash it all over your living room floor, furniture , TV and keepsakes. Note how long it takes to clean up the mess from a gallon or so of messy water. Then imagine thousands of dishpans being emptied all over your house.

Please support charitable groups attempting to help with the cleanup."

I'll put aside the fact that Sony is the devil.

I received this as a gift a while back, and when I used it with my iPhone 4S, it picked up and broadcasted weird signal chirps and interference. I wouldn't recommend it for mobile device usage.

Oh yeah, and Sony is the devil.

Heh-heh. I avoid most Sony products that record, play of copy UNLESS they are the "pro" models for studio use. (This unit is not a problem here).

The problem IS that Sony wants to sell stuff to play, record and copy and yet also owns the legal rights to all kinds of music and movies. There is a solid wall of lawyers that get in the way of engineering to "prevent" the possibility of (their) content from being duped.

The results were crummy min-disc players that would not permit you to play your own music on your own home PC IF it was copied to the small portable Sony unit. That, and the scandal referenced above were the direct result of "lawyer-think" propelled by a frightened media industry.

They've been fretting about this since cassettes were invented.

I expected the prices of these to come down more than they have when the dock changed on the new iphone. I suppose lots of people still have the older versions, but I would think if they had wanted a dock they would have one by now.
