We don't have an iPhone in our home, although my children do dream of the day when we will have one (or two, if they have their way). If iPhones are anything like iPods, the accessories are numerous and expensive. However, here is a pretty cool addition that will only end up costing you the price of a toilet paper roll. Instead of shelling out the money for a set of speakers just recycle a toilet paper roll and get a similar affect.

This approach to an amplifier is not pretty or uber-hip like so many of the iPhone accessories, but it's ultra eco-friendly and in this day and age that counts for quite a lot. One of our staff writers suggested using a Pringles can to get a better boost of sound. You could also use a paper towel roll or maybe even an orange highway cone. The possibilities are fairly endless.

    Isn't that the coolest thing, Heather? I *so* have to get me an iPhone. They actually tested this over at our sister site, TheUnofficialAppleWeblog, and believe it or not, it actually seems to work. Weird. :-)
