I'm told when it was originally sold, the Desk Director went for almost $900. From who else? Sharper Image.
As is fitting for a Sharper Image product, I will now be trying to figure out how to wire the handset up as an iPhone dock. (It actually seems dead simple for even a soldering simp like yours truly.)
You can buy one new today for just $240. (I paid a cool $30 from a guy on Craigslist who insisted I plug it in and "give her a whirl.")
