On the new MacVoices (http://www.macvoices.com), Brian Verenkoff of Buffalo Technology explains the two primary functions of their new Dualie.

A combination hard drive and iPhone/iPod dock, Dualie also offers two USB ports for connecting additional drives, and a 500GB 2.5-inch drive with both USB 2.0 and FireWire 800 ports. Dualie puts all this on your desk and is designed to keep both the iPhone/iPod and the harddrive in easy reach while eliminating cable clutter.
