The SmartDock2 is a 30-pin docking station for the iPod that includes an adjustable slide to accommodate various iPod sizes. The primary function of the SmartDock2 is to provide a bridge between a receiver such as the IntelliControl® ICS GXR2 or the Niles ZR-6 MultiZone Receiver and an adjacent computer. This configuration allows you to sync with iTunes and instantly switch back to the Niles System without ever having to remove the iPod from the SmartDock2 or disconnect cables.
The federal government is giving away $35 million to Californians who are buying energy efficient appliances.
California’s “cash for appliances” program began Thursday — on Earth Day — and is designed to cut energy use in the nation’s most populous state as well as other states.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to buy energy efficient appliances and take advantage of the program’s three rebates: $100 for clothes washers, $75 for refrigerators, and $50 for room air conditioners.
Many utilities and retailers will add rebates and incentives so consumers can save hundreds of dollars on some products.
Officials say consumers seeking the rebates must submit proof that they bought a new, qualifying appliance and disposed of their old one.
Each state and territory will choose dollar amounts for the products selected. Most rebate amounts range from $50 to $500, depending upon the product being purchased, the purchase price, and other potential market factors. Some states give additional rebates for recycling.
