Apple didn’t get rich by writing a lot of cheques, or by giving something away when it could charge for it later. Even when that something would mean your iPhone wasn’t left kicking around on the computer desk, getting scratched up and knocked off.
All we get from Apple is a poxy little USB cable, while Steve Jobs and Tim Cook sit on a mountain of sweet-smelling cash, rubbing coins on their faces and smoking roll-ups made from £20 notes that they lit with a £5 note – all because we went out and bought a dock for our iPhone that should have had one included in the box!
Where was I? Oh yes – picking my iPhone up off the floor.
But no longer. I decided to learn by Apple’s thrifty example and made my own iPhone stand from recycled cardboard.
That’s right, Cook! How do you like them… Apples. Hmm, he probably likes them quite a lot. Not the best sting I’ve ever administered to The Man, but you get the point.
Apple’s got enough of your money, dear punter, so Pocket Gamer‘s here to save you a few quid and show you how to make your own iPhone/iPod touch stand.
You’re very welcome.
Here’s a plan for your new stand. It’s A4 landscape size, and gives you all the dimensions so you can measure out and draw the flattened iPhone stand on a piece of cardboard.
