Does anyone know, does the CCK work with the iPad dock stand? There are a few apps That I want to use with the CCK that require the iPad to be stood on end, but I dont want to waste my money if the dock doesn't pass all of the connections required to use the CCK.

if you have the 1G ipad and you're going to use the Apple ipad dock then it's compatible as stated in the Apple store:
"..it supports other iPad accessories, such as the iPad Dock Connector to VGA Cable and iPad Camera Connection Kit."

i have the cck,it's easy to copy or move lots of pics from my iphone,ipod,or sd card to my ipad2.
it won't connect a camera or an accessories that uses too much power though.
btw,just curious, what kind of apps you're going to use with the cck?

I have a SNES joypad modified to play any iCade compatible games, any games with [configurable] keyboard input on windows/osx/linux, and Xperia Play games on android (untested, my phone doesn't support USB host).

[edit] forgot to mention, as if you couldn't guess, it connects through USB, so I can take it on planes and hospitals and other places where they don't like wireless gadgets.
