Your Pebbles 1

The “Your Pebbles” is an interesting gadget which brings a little bit of enjoyment on your desk.

iDock XL Transforms Your iPhone into an iPad

iDock-XL-iPadCan’t afford to get even the cheapest iPad model, at $499? No worries,all you need is your trusty old iPhone, and the iDock XL.

Many have argued that the iPad is just a blown-up version  of the iPhone, so someone finally came up with an idea to change the multimedia phone into the desired tablet PC. That’s how the iDock XL was “born.”

Sure, it doesn’t look the part, and if your iPhone isn’t jailbroken, you’ll only be able to see video files, due to the restrictions put in place, by Apple. But if your iPhone is jailbroken, you practically have a slightly oversized version of the Apple iPad.

The iDock XL costs only $230, considerably cheaper than the iPad, but the fact that the display isn’t touchscreen (you have to use the iPad’s touchscreen),and the awkward look make the Apple iPad a much better choice.

Check the iDock in action, after the break.
