while stumbling across the interwebs last night i found this:
someone posted a DIY dock for ipods that apparently works with heroes as well.
"what fun!" i thought. i quickly tried it out with some heavy paper and realized i needed some sort of card stock to make this actually work.. off to walmart. it was there that i found this little gem
it's some sort of docking thing for external hard drives (because it's totally practical). anyway, i inspected it and realized it was exactly what i wanted..
a usb cable inside molded plastic. the best part? it was $3.00 on clearance.
the phone doesn't exactly fit at first but i simply had to cut some of the front plastic lip away and it works GREAT. exactly what i wanted..
for 3 dollars
