Rather than go buy an expensive Apple dock, I decided that all i needed was an iPod cable holder positioned right beneath an iPod holder. So I built the iPod throne. The iPod sits in the top, and there is a sliding insert that will lock the iPod USB or Firewire cable into place. Simply feed the cable in through the bottom, insert the lock, connect the iPod, and set it down in the chair. If someone will donate an iTrip to me, I may add an iPod lego crown.
