My [crappy] home made stands

    Bought a couple of mini art easels to use as "docks". One for home and one for work.

    They don't look like much, ok, they look kind of crappy, but they were only $3 each at my local Flower Factory store. The home one is much more substantial and I will probably paint it black. I'm no artist or carpenter. I just hand chiseled out a notch and hot glued a micro-usb cable into each (the home stand pic was taken before I added the cord). I didn't get the cord placement quite right on the work one, though it still works fine. The home one is much more precisely placed and allows the phone to fit flush.

    Even though they don't look cool, they work fine and $6 is better than $60.

    Home one:

    My brother has done that.

    Thankfully I don't think of my phone that way :)
