Good: Ease of use
Bad: Not a lot as far as I can see except cost
Comment: Not sure I see the point of it, is all! I have a wireless network and shared drives (who wouldn't with a Sonos system) and everything on my iPhone is on my PC and hence one of my shared drives already. I can play any music I have in my iPhone directly from the controller therefore...or have I missed something??
Good: Gets iDevice content onto Sonos
Bad: Defeats the point of "wireless" if my iphone has to be in the dock!
Comment: At first, I thought this was great, but in practice, it's dysfunctional. Why do I have to dock a wifi device in order to get on a wireless network? I keep my phone with me while in the house because I need to make/receive calls/text/email/etc wherever I happen to be. That's the point of a wireless device, after all!
Instead of this dock, why not make an app that allows you to stream the iDevice audio over wifi to the Sonos system? Same for Laptops... I'd love to wirelessly stream the audio from my laptop to my sonos so while I'm doing anything with audio (youtube/skype/dvd/websites, etc.) it can be played to my Sonos zones.
