You don’t want to see my desk. Trust me – it’s pretty bad. In fact, you mightn’t even be able to see it, hidden as it is under a stack of junk and gadgets.
Actually, I’m kidding. I’m a neat-freak, which is why I have my eye on the Station, a bamboo desk tidy for your iPhone and all your other crap.
$40 will get you this minimalist tray, fashioned from sturdy grass. There’s a slot for your iPhone, which should also serve as an acoustic amplifier and make music and speakerphone calls louder and clearer.
That’s fine, but we already have all kinds of docks to do that job. The twist here is that there’s also space for the contents of your other pockets: keys, change, a pen or stylus and/or a stack of memory cards, and so on. Currently I’m using a cardboard box that came with a Doxie scanner review unit (filled with screwed up paper balls!), but the Station has the advantage of not having a lid and therefore not hiding things away.
