New gadgets are always a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you get a fancy, brand-new piece of tech while on the other hand often times the accessories you buy for it become obsolete with the new gadget’s shape or form. Apple products are notorious for this between versions and CableJive’s latest DockXtender remedy’s this issue for dock-enabled iPhone/iPad/iPod accessories.

The $25 CableJive dockXtender is a 2-foot long cable that bridges the connection between any iOS device and its accessory without losing functionality and it comes highly recommended if you don’t want to shell out for a new Bose Dock everytime a new iOS device comes out (you get the idea).
