    lol thats nice but instead of the magnet you could just download the app dockloader which put the phone in dock mode automatically. but i like the overall design..classic

    I just love it :D

    i like the idea, using what is around and creating stuff similar to things costing some 40 Bucks.....maybe not as stylish...but who cares at home?

    :D

    Try making a dock out of the box the droid comes in. The cardboard pieces that cradles the droid cup the droid nicely. http://i.imgur.com/AHCwI.jpg

    Very creative and I applaud the effort, but the dock is only $30. I would feel weird having a cut up cardboard box holding my phone in my office.

    But that would work just fine in my garage!

    But if you use a case ( body glove etc ) it wont fit in the stock dock.

    Great idea and think I'll make one to fit mine with body glove on, gonna have to see if magnet will trigger through it.

    Book end dock

    1 metal book end:

    1 magnet;

    2 pieces of material to stop your droid from slipping. I used the soft side of velcro.

    I did something similar with a metal bookend. Bent one of the center pieces down to a right angle, stuck a magnet to the backside of it, and used electrical tape to secure a binder clip to the front of the bent piece so the Droid has something to learn against.
