    Conceptually, that is awesome. With a little aesthetics added to it, I think we could call it gorgeous =)

    Very nice job. I would add some duct tape to it. No, seriously, it will give it some durability.

    Ok, I just got mine, so quick question...

    What screen is that showing on you phone when you have it on your "dock" (quite nice I might add).

    How can I bring that screen up on mine?

    Thats the dock mode screen - get the app dock runner or activate it with a magnet (this is how its done with the 'official' dock...)

    Thanks for all the compliments - I may have to decorate it next - any ideas?

    Cool!

    Looks nice! The hardest part is getting it plugged in and out...but once you have that worked out it's worth having...if even while you are waiting to buy a 'real' one. I use my droid as my alarm clock (and bedside clock...) and this was really a necessary thing to do, as I cannot see it at night when its flat on the nightstand.:icon_eek:

    That is also pretty cool.

    I might have to try and put one of these homemade docks together myself
