so, my parents got an iPad a few months ago, but only now do they really get around to start using it more and more. Back then, I bought one of the first lightning ipad docking stations I could find in Germany, so they could charge it easily. I thought that's the way they really preferred and had expected. I wonder, however, if these stations are really still a good idea with the lightning connector: Frankly, to me it feels as if the contacts were endangered, as you always have to shift around and swing back and forth before it really fits in neatly - it's just way too big.

I don't know about others, I suppose many people always just had their iPad lying around to charge it, no?

What should I do? Is there a great lightning docking station? What do you do?

I use a dock (speaker dock) with the iPhone 4, but the iPad I only charge off the travel adapter. For one thing I don't have to think about keeping it charged and for another it's easier to plug it in with the Lightning adapter.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
