I’ve a Touch Diamond 2 that tends to remain connected to my PC when at work however as my desk tends to be messy at the best of times I wanted some form of cradle to keep my phone tidy at least.  As any reader of my blog will know I’m also a fan of reusing old parts lying around and I just had a brainwave.

I’ve had an old AMD CPU cooler on my desk for a while and until now I’ve been using it to hold cups of tea, with a simple flex of one of the bracket slots at the back and some prodding of a standard USB cable I have a holder.  It’s actually very sturdy and it’s the simple hacks I’m a fan of.  One DIY phone cradle, no tools required.
