I mentioned earlier today that I recently purchased a G5 Video iPod.Â Before this purchase, I had been using an iPod shuffle for most of my music and podcast listening at work, but now that I have this big beautiful screen on my iPod, I felt like I needed to get an iPod stand, or dock of some kind so I could see it.
Well, I did some looking around, and really wasn’t interested in paying the $30 plus bucks that everyone seems to want for a decent stand – so I look around my desk for a “rigged” up solution…and then I found it.Â A business card holder under some junk on my desk (there is A LOT of junk on my desk).Â I gave it a try, and it’s freakin’ perfect.
So without further ado, here is a link to Office Max, where you can get your very own, $1.98 cent Video iPod stand
That is the most cost-effective accessory that I’ve seen. Nice work.
If OfficeMax put a “Made-for-iPod” sticker on there, they’d sell a million in a month..!!
the full size full key keyboards are nice ebtween the F1-F12 and 1-9 area buttons.
Pretty funny but if you want a real dock check out my cheap ass dock which will probably cost you a total of 0.00 dollar!
Michael, dude you are a life saver! I was wanting just a stand for my g5 ipod as well because I use mines while in flight on the plane alot, and I got so tired of holding it while in flight, I was going to make something but this seems perffect! I didn’t want to spend 30 bucks for a dock stand either, so I googled ipod stand and Im glad I came across this site.
