HOW TO – make a universal iPod dock

Ipoddock Ian writes “Frusterated that your new iPod Video or Nano won’t fit in the dock you already have? (Well, it will, but worried about the connector breaking off if you bump it?) Well, worry no more. All it takes to turn an old Dock (in this case, the one that came with my 3G iPod) into a wanna-be Universal Dock capable of accepting the Univeral Dock adapters that come with the new iPods. Sure, it won’t work with the remote, but it’ll get your iPod working with your stereo or just sitting pretty next to your computer, and if you start with a Photo dock, I don’t see why the video out wouldn’t work too.” Link.
