Those of us over a certain age (ahem) remember the days, after the LP and the 8-track, but before the CD, when cassette tapes were all the rage. I belonged to a couple of different tape clubs back in the day, and still have quite a few of these bad boys in a case under my house, somewhere.

More to the point, I could easily grab a couple of them, and leave them at my desk at work, my desk at home, on the kitchen table, and maybe even one by the stove to prop up my iPhone when I’m at those places, because it would keep it from lying on the counter or desktop, waiting to have stuff dropped on it. Plus, it holds the iPhone at an easy reading angle, for recipes, or for monitoring Twitter while working.

All in all, this is a super cool idea, and a great way to reduce and reuse stuff I probably already have.

What about you? Does this seem like something you’d do? Is it a bit too hipster? Let us know in the comments below.
