Apple wipes out its compact wired keyboard, adds remote control and charger to the universal dock

The Apple Wireless Keyboard never had a numeric keypad, perhaps to make it more practical to place on your lap. Meanwhile, the bastard sword on the wired keyboard has all the benefit of the numbers on the right, but it is complicated to balance on the legs (even because the wire is short). Now imagine a creation of these two: a keyboard without numbers and that you can't put on your lap because the wire is short.

Well, it seems the worst of both worlds, so much so that Apple decided to discontinue it. He was cute, but it definitely never seemed like a good idea.

How about good news? Or bad, depending on how you look at it Now there are more reasons for you to buy a universal dock for iPods and iPhones two, to be more specific. Apple has updated the contents of the box, which now features the new aluminum Remote, a USB cable and a wall charger. There in the US this has led to a price increase from $ 50 to $ 60, but I think the extras are more than worth it.

Universal DockIn addition, the dock comes with three fewer adapters. There are five in the box: for iPhones 4 and 3G (S), iPod touch 4th, 3rd and 2nd generation, and iPod nano 5th generation. Other adapters must be purchased separately.

The news is “bad” because you will probably want to buy it now, either for yourself or as a gift, if you don't already have it. The new universal dock box can now be purchased at the Apple Online Store Brasil for R $ 215 (with free shipping and installments up to 12 interest-free installments).
