    Default 5 Pencils + 4 Rubber Bands = Your New iPhone Stand


    I'm always bugged by the fact that my $29 iPhone 3G dock doesn't let me set the thing landscape.

    Some guy named Roland devised a high-tech stand using 5 pencils and 4 rubber bands to watch his iPhone movies and such. A clever little creation indeed. You never know, this may even work with pens.

    Of course there's no nifty built-in charger for this stand, but at the low price of $1.12, I'm sure you can finagle some way to make it happen.

    Show us your versions.

    Thanks for the tip, Roland.

    i've got one even better than that!! when im at work...all i do is stick the iphone in a business card holder (landscape) and prop it up on an elevated calculator face which puts it on a slight lean and then i can lean back and watch movies very comfortably!! hahaha

    I just prop mine up against my OJ bottle in class so I can watch movies instead of paying attention to the lecture. It suffices

    Ah but with a 3.8 GPA, I'm really not that worried

    Plus, I'm on an athletic scholarship...so my grades have to stay up else I lose it
