Have you ever seen one of those podium coolpads(I think thats what they're called), or an iCurve? Those things seem like a cool idea but they're really expensive for what they are...
I thought I could make one by turning the case of an old powerbook around (hinge at the front), propping it open a little and placing my ibook on top.
I think it would be so much better tho if I could put this old fan I have lying around in the cavity left by the screen of the powerbook and drill some holes (or somehow else make a vent) in the top of the case to blow air on to the bottom of the ibook. The biggest problem with that is, how to cut a hole in the top case of a powerbook...
I think I could place a USB hub inside the guts of the old powerbook and build a new back cover where the SCSI and ADB etc ports were so I could have my external keyboard, joystick, camera etc. attached permanently, halving wear on the ibooks USB ports (plus adding a few more ports)
Anyway, sketches are coming when I figure out how to upload images
