So I upgraded to the incredible. Left me with an extra eris around. I had a battery powered speaker with aux hookup. http://www.ihomeaudio.com/iHM10S/
. It has a wonderful shelf for leaving my eris in horizontal (landscape) mode so I can plug it into the charger and the aux port. I had an old multivoltage ac adapter that could output 6v 300ma. I got tired of switching batteries in the speakers, so I made some wooded dowels into fake batteries and put some screws/wires on the end of them. Now i have a perfect bedside clock/mp3 player that displays weather etc and plugs into the wall. Only thing i am trying to figure out is how to patch my usb charging cable into it so I only have one thing to plug into the wall. Since my voltage is adjusted at the transformer on the outlet plug, I dont think that part is gonna happen. It looks nice and I can still take out my fake batteries, put in real ones, and use my battery powered speakers. Thanks to google voice, wifi, and cm7 internet call settings, I now have a home phone for free too :) just thought I would share my quick little weekend project. Hopefully i can update with pics later.
