The two small holes on the bottom of my clamshell iBook...

...been meaning to ask this for some time, finally doing it.

On the bottom of my Rev A iBook are two small holes between the Apple logo and the battery compartment. I have oft wondered what purpose the serve. I do recall seing some time (year at this point) a picture in a magazine in which a young girl had an iBook afixed to her back via backpack straps. It wasmost cool, and looked like as a professional gig. The picture was part of an articled about kids and technology. So the subject of the picture was not expounded upon. Any clues?

"Bottom View: The bottom of the iBook includes the battery door with spring-loaded screws, and the contacts for a third party charging station."

Well...

I do not think it would be too hard to make something for this. I am envisioning a dock (most likely made out of good quality wood, or a heavily modded dock from someother laptop) and retrofitted with a dis-embodied yo-yo. If done right, one should be able to mount it vertically (like on the wall) and charge away. The only problem with that, however, would be being able to open it while mounted vs. being able to secure it to a vertical chrager...

...Thanks! I needed something to ponder while ponder while I pretend to work at my desk Acute
