    Just wanted to ask what anyone thought of a new "device" i've been working on and I eventually hope to sell some. It connects it the chrging/syncing port on the ipod/iphone and acts as a audio jack so instead of replacing the jack you can just use this :) what do you think? I have a prototype for myself already because.......my audio jack is broken

    Edit: If anyone needs one I can make them now for you , The thing holding me back before was I couldn't find a good supplier of audio jacks. Anyway If you want one the price is $25 Shipped (USA)

    So... it's like the hundreds of "charging/audio" speaker sets/docks for the iPod and iPhone currently on the market today?

    I don't have a broken audio jack, but I know how it can happen and how this can be so very useful. I wish you luck!

    Are those volume control buttons working?
