Tip: Make your iPhone speaker louder with that empty pint glass on your desk

This isn’t rocket science, but surprisingly, it does work.  Need your iPhone’s speaker to be a little louder?  Drop it into a nice big funnel-top pint glass.  The echo chamber effect will pump a few more decibels out of the iPhone speaker and you can still read what’s on your display as well.  Great for conference calls or sharing music at a quiet pub.
