What razor said. Fanboys blindly bash anything. I'd bash Nokia if it does wrong and praise others if they do good.

I'm not blindly bashing. I recognize crap when I see crap, so ill call it out for being crap.

If you have a compatible phone, this is just damn cool and convenient. And would keep people from friggin' textin'/sextin'/browsin'/pr0nin'/etc. while driving.

1. Thank you Toyota for making something for a phone that isn't an iPhone.
2. Follwing up to number 1 would be, they are smart because if they did make something iPhone related it would appeal to some but not all due to the charging dock changing between iPhones.

so why is it mislabeled wireless charging again? You're using magnetic fields to induce a current. Last time i checked it involved no wires.
Kind of qualifies for the term wireless charging.

I believe the argument usually is that the charging pad has wires, so calling it "wireless charging" isn't really accurate. Either way, I personally think that "induction charging" not only is more accurate, but it sounds cooler.
