    Here is an idea for our communications project. Its some sort of dock that has a DSL Input, power input, and 4 usb ports.

    Do u know how u go home and u usually put ur cell phone in ur room or on ur charger? And lets say u go downstairs or something and ur somebody calles ur cellphone and u have no idea and cannot hear ur cellphone ringing.

    So basically u can connect ur dock to ur landline phone, and also connect up the phone to the dock, and whenever somebody calls ur cellphone, no matter where u are in the house, ur landline will also ring.

    Just wondering if this idea exist's yet?

    I think it's been implemented by forwarding your calls to your landline for some time, but not through a cable: it's usually that you call your phone carrier and they rig it up for you.
    ACEDIT: That means both yes and no.

    Google Voice can do that, no?

    That's what I was gonna say. Google Voice is a beast. Only thing is, it requires distributing a new phone number.
