If you're an owner of the first generation iPhone then one of the (many) annoyances you've discovered with your new curvy and slightly chubbier 3G sib is the fact that it won't fit your existing dock -- be it the dock bundled with the iPhone or with the Bluetooth headset. To make matters worse, Apple chose not to bundle a compatible dock with the iPhone 3G -- you have to purchase that separately for $29... you know, assuming you can find it. Fortunately, that old dock can be made into a suitable charging base for your iPhone 3G with just a bit of simple Dremel action and elbow grease. Sounds like a bargain to us.
