10-Minute Project: Cigar Box Charging Station

Grab a power strip, some velcro strips, a cigar box, and a dremel, and in just a few minutes you can throw together this simple yet elegant way to hide your mess of charging electronic peripherals!
Quick question, where can I get free cigar boxes?
Any place that mainly sells cigars will have a bunch of boxes for around a dollar.
Very cool. Even more cool because it houses a zune!

Zunes pwn iPods.
No they don't....... zunes suck.

How can they suck? They lack lips.
Zunes are quiet innovative when it comes to sucking :P
iPods have an suckage app you can download.
Yes, well, the Ipod sucked when it was released, so it'll be a few years until Microsoft is up to speed with new Zunes.
iPod, not Ipod, iPod
zunes still suck
Haha I was just joking as I haven't actually had the chance to even see a Zune in real life (I live in Australia) but I have to say thats a pretty bad excuse, I mean why wouldn't you stick to iPods until they become good? :P I have to say though that its cool how you can send songs but microsoft really screwed up with how you can only send samples and the other people have to buy the song. (But thats obviously because of legal issues)
