Apple Box – Nexus One Dock

What better way to make a Nexus One dock than ro recycle?

After selling my iPhone, I still had the box. It seemed silly to bin the box so I used to help make a dock for my Nexus One!

So there you have it…

…if you have a spare iPhone case laying around now you know what to do with it. 🙂

Hope you love my craft skillz. as you can see; it’s probably better that I stick to my Affiliate Marketing & Programming – but I still refuse to pay shipping TWICE to have TWO Google Nexus Docks shipped to the UK !!

Well, in an earlier post – I showed you how to make a budget Nexus One Andrex Dock

I thought I’d get creative – so I had a look how to make play dough:

And then Proceeded:

Right now, the thing is in the oven.

Apparently you are not meant to put play doh in the oven. So it may just be a big PHAT PHAIL!

I’ll update once it’s out the oven!!

UPDATE: ITS OUT THE OVEN

Nexus One Andrex Dock

So, 26th January I ordered my Nexus One from Google.com and had to pay the $29 dollars for shipping to the UK.. quite reasonable price to be honest!

However, on 27th January Google Announced the Desktop Dock was now available – this was rather frustrating as I had already placed my order – so if I want one I will have to pay the $29 shipping fee again. However, I want 2! You can’t buy 2 though….If I want to purchase 2 then I have to place 2 seperate orders, meaning I will have to pay shipping to the UK twice, again – I’ve already paid once!

So, I figured I would make my own. This one cost 50 pence – (around 1 dollar to you US folks!)

There you have it!

This is perfect; I can create as many as I want. If you wanted to get creative you could colour yours in paint; or maybe cover it with papier mache?

$1 per dock – admitedly it doesn’t have Bluetooth like the Google one; but it’s a lot cheaper!

I almost forgot… A photo with the headphone Jack in:

Sorry about the quality of the photos… my digital camera is rubbish – it’s okay though as I now have a great camera in the Nexus One 🙂

Hope you like it.

p.s. Yes, I know it shit; but that’s what do you expect from a bit of shit roll? =))

Increase Your Web Presence with Google Webmaster Tools

It’s one thing to get your site showing up in Google. It’s another thing to make sure you get all your pages into Google.

The easiest way to do this is by using an XML sitemap & Google Webmaster Tools (GWT).

GWT allows you to analyse your website from the Google Bot’s perspective to ensure that all your links are working, your meta tags are not duplicated and many other things such as setting the rate at which bots visit your site.

All you need is a Google Account & access to the HTML of your homepage.

Once you’ve signed in, it’s fairly easy to follow the on-screen instructions to setup your domain.

Google will index your pages, and you can also use your sitemap on Yahoo!, Live and other search engines.

If you dont have it already, get Google Webmaster Tools now!
