I made a little iPhone stand for my desk at work. I don't use the iPhone as a phone, just as a music player and I plug it into a little speaker. I got sick of laying it flat on the desk because it always changes orientation and annoys me when i'm choosing music. I made it out of a copper wire and orange electrical tape. (orange is my thing)
It holds it vertically or horizontally. I really like it, I might make another one so I can do it better.
