Have you heard the radio recently?
Does anyone actually listen to that rubbish?
What do you mean "Yes"?
Fine, be like that then, but I find the content broadcast from payola land to be poor at best and one can only take so much radio four before the need to kill a politician takes hold.
Old mobile phone to in car mp3 player conversion!
"But that's easy" I hear you say. Well yes, it is easy, but it's a Sunday and my soldering iron needs some exercise.
So we take one of these:
Do this to it:
|mmmm.... hot glue... From carphone|
(so I can find the buttons without looking)
|more hotglue!! From carphone|
then do this:
|yet more hotglue! xD From carphone|
To keep it running forever I threw together a charger:
|12V through a USB port backwards.. nice one guys..|
|no such thing at too much hotglue From carphone|
Hopefully this one wont put an annoying buzz onto the audio output like the switch mode ones do. Either that or next week will be "webby makes a ground loop isolator"
In addition to the hardware, I've put sypftp on the phone so I can upload music to wirelessly and light control to keep the backlight lit while the phone is unlocked.
I'll give it a test on the way to work tomorrow. :)
