A Docking Station For Your iMac, iPad and iPhone

I bought an iMac a few weeks ago, and I had to re-think my workspace to fit a new desktop computer and two docks (iPhone and iPad) on a single desk. It turned out pretty good, and I also managed to hide the cables (USB, FireWire) behind the iMac’s screen and the external hard drive. I wish I could install something like the concept below, though.

Posted a while back on Yanko Design, the “docking station” allows you to put an iMac, an iPhone and an iPad on a single surface. The station charges the devices and keeps them at a perfect angle for your viewing pleasure. USB ports are located on the front for easy access, and there are a couple of cabinets for your pens and papers in there as well.

No, really: I would buy something like this. I’m tired of cables and docks, even if I can hide them pretty well.
