Actually a dock charger is a wall charger abeit a more expensive one. So yes I do use a wall charger.Huh. So you're not wall charging your iPod, huh? And either way you slice it, you NEED to hook it up to computer at some point.. Otherwise, you have no music. And if you're just sycning the one time from a friend (whose music you don't own) - why bother having an iPod?
To me this whole argument/discussion has gone in circles and circles. If you're homeless, you shouldn't have an iPod. If you don't have a computer, you probably don't even know what an iPod is or how to use it.
Bottom line: Wall adapter is not included. Deal with it. Buy it or don't - that's your choice.
But if you want me to expand, I have have several chargers, bought one for the car, I have the dock that is connected to the home theater system at all times and I have a second set of AV cables/charger that travels with me so I can charge my ipod/iPhone. If it would have come with a charger I would not have bothered buying the second set of av cables but since I would have already had to spend $30 I spent another $19 instead to have the av capability on the road.
Times my ipod or iPhone has been charged on my computer (besides the little charge from the sync) is ZERO.
Secondly you find where I said I was syncing my music for a friend?
If you actually read my thread or the others who stated the same thing. I will put this in bold for you:
Many people rip their cd's to a computer (or have a friend or family member do it for them in the cases of a lot of older people) sync the thing once then it never sees a computer again.
So what you are saying is exactly what I was talking about before. People who just want to carry their music around in an easier skip free environment should be penalized because they don't like to use a computer or don't have one attached to the hip like the rest of us?
Yes the argument is going around in circles but I find it offensive that people think its about money. It is clearly not, I do not and never will consider a charger an accessory.
I just love the one mindedness on this board sometimes, not every one does everything the same way, but if they don't do it your way well then your not worthy of owning the equipment
Lastly I don't think you are getting the point of the original post, yes people are going to buy one because they have no choice. Its clearly a cost cutting measure (as well as a new revenue source). I have no problem with Apple making a profit even a nice profit, but I think this is just to far.
Apple didn't all of the sudden say hmm no one really uses the wall chargers lets just drop it from the package. If they did why are they still selling wall chargers now if no one uses them?
