    There seems to be a lot of interest in cheap, creative solutions for making an iPad stand, so I thought we should have a thread about them. Post yours, including the price you paid. Here is mine, purchased for $2.99 at Office Depot:

    Did you get it yet? I canceled an order with them about a month ago because they were so slow it was going to be weeks before I actually got it..... I liked the idea though.....

    No, I just ordered it last night after reading the coat hanger thread. I'll post a little review once I do get it, so if you don't see that review then you will know they are still having supply problems...

    I use a wooden photo stand for reading at the table and a wooden book stand I had purchased on ebay for use on my desk. The Apple case works in the slant position works very well for typing.

    I picked up a [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Bookgem-Book-Holder-Kindle-Tablet/dp/B0006J323C/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1274816650&sr=8-14-spell]Book Gem[/ame] from Amazon that really fits the bill. Light weight, portable, sturdy, works in portrait and landscape, allows power cord in either orientation, and cheap. What's not to like?

    Wow! No kidding.

    Actually I ordered the round one:
    iPad Stand Round

    I was just looking for something to store it in landscape mod and possibly charge it. I have the apple dock and think that is going to be the death of the 30 pin connector far too quickly.
