Like Cars, Warships Have iDocks Too

British Navy just launched its latest destroyer class ship, HMS Daring. The $800 million 150 meter ship that has been fitted with a state of the art anti-air missile system, but its most amazing feature might be an iPod charger.

Mess decks are replaced by individual cabins, each with their own I-pod charging points, CD player, internet access, five channel recreational audio and larger berths.

I get a feeling, at this point Microsoft and Bill Gates would have a tough time dislodging iPod from its perch.

I hope people still use iPods compatible with today’s ports in 2009 when this ship goes into service. Seriously, why would the designers put in an iPod port as opposed to a standard power receptacle and speaker mini-jacks?

Good for the UK. I think this is great. Those guys are stuck out there for ages, and this is something I think they deserve.
