Got a broken iPod? If you can’t fix it yourself or don’t have the money to get it repaired by iPodMods, then you can always rip it apart and make an iPod dock like Andrew Monks. This photo montage on flickr shows how he teared apart his existing iPod dock and jammed it through the screen of his broken 3G iPod.

It’s a very clever way to make something useful out of a busted iPod. The folks at Engadget think this might be the “start of a very wonderful, very cannibalistic trend in consumer electronics.” It’s always nice to breathe new life into an old gadget that you blew a couple hundred bucks on right?
