Sometimes simple is best.

Just ask Victoria Beckham.

And that's the very reason that we love the iPad BlockDock. There's nothing there to confuse Pocket-lint's little brain - it's simply a block of wood.

According to its makers

"Each BlockDock is hand crafted in beautiful Oregon from Madrone wood. Arbutus menziesii, commonly called the Pacific Madrone is a broadleaf evergreen tree with a smooth trunk, orange-red peeling bark, white flowers and red berries. It grows on the west coast of North America, from British Columbia to California. Uniquely Northwestern, Madrone is a hard, heavy wood with a fine grain and smooth texture. All of these properties make it an ideal wood for the BlockDock."

Lovely stuff.

Priced at $12.95, it's a nice, cheap and classy iPad stand option. It's a shame it hasn't got a dock connector (or some funky acoustics) but for less than $13 whaddya expect?
