This took me all of 5 minutes to do, yes it's rough n ready but it works rather well and seems stable.

All you need is a bit of 3x2 and 3 screws/nails and some tape

I used medical tape, the type that's like cloth, to cover the screws so they wouldn't scratch the Vega.
It's only to b used temporarily until I can get a proper dock.

We're not going down this road of people making stands out of dog s*** and sellotape just to show that it's possible!

I think we could all come up with some form of rubbish looking stand but we want to see quality efforts on here please.

After all, this is a hackorz forum is it not?

Some Ipad owners have been using the Gorillapod flexible camera tripod.

Link says it is the 'compact' version which you can get from loads of places for around £13.

I guess the bonus would be it's very portable and can easily be adjusted to various positions.

I've also been looking at cheap business card desk stands and plate stands to see if any can be modified for use.

Could use a smaller spindle for a greater lean angle perhaps.

It happened when I installed the official facebook and twitter apps. They link to them now rather than the websites.

That's something I'd like to know, want to change twitter to tweetdeck and browser to opera.


OH and as for stands, I've found a picture frame/plate stand on fleabay that looks pretty decent and is adjustable.

That's genius! Been faffing around with bits of wood and plastic trying to make a stand for my Commtiva N700 all afternoon, whilst having 3 Gorillpod's (of varying sizes) in my camera bag...

Sometimes it's the most blindingly obvious that escapes you isn't it?
