    It's a nonstandard word. It's commonly used by some people but is not technically a correct word. It's a double negative.

    I wouldn't buy this dock for $90. It looked great and promising and of course is likely compatible for future iDevices I may purchase, however, I would rather just slightly struggle with my charger/dock and save $90.

    Yes, I am reading that the word in question is on every dictionary site I have come across. If it wasn't a word, they wouldn't put a page for it.

    It's a *nonstandard* word as noted on most sources. Meaning it is an incorrect word. It is commonly used bc people keep using it, doesn't mean it's a correct term. It's a double negative. Essentially, "regardless" means "without regard." The prefix "irr" means "without" so you're saying "without without regard." So "without without regard" means "with regard." So you're saying "with regard" rather than "without regard."

    She's right.

    Irregardless... I've never even heard of such a thing.

    I should have asked if you understood the words rather than just read them...
