oooo, I love this idea. A peripheral mod guide,
. Ok my thoughts. I would love to see an arcrylic one. I am assuming that this is for a regular white ipod. I think that you should stick with teh white color. That is, unless of course you have the 4th generation with the click wheel. In which case, I would consider a matching grey stand.
I would go with something original, a different shape or something. what if you added a slot just above the keyboard for the ipod? or maybe some sort of device where you could slide the ipod in like a pcmcia card in a laptop. Of course you would want to pad the inside with felt. or an extension off the side of the keyboard where you could lay the ipod flat down. I duno, just ideas
