iPhone 5 Docks, Oblong Pizzas, and Craigslist Thumbnails
Readers offer their best tips for turning an old iPhone dock into an iPhone 5-compatible one, getting a better look at Craigslist listings, and seeing how long your battery has lasted since its last charge.
Every day we receive boatloads of great reader tips in our inbox, but for various reasons-maybe they're a bit too niche, maybe we couldn't find a good way to present it, or maybe we just couldn't fit it in-the tip didn't make the front page. From the Tips Box is where we round up some of our favorites for your buffet-style consumption. Got a tip of your own to share? Add it in the comments, email it to tips at lifehacker.com, or share it over at our user-run blog, Hackerspace.

Slice Oblong Pizzas Better With This Simple Method
Pizza making tip: Cut your home-made pizza like this if you want NYC-style foldable slices instead of miniature ones you might get if you cut it into 8 equal slices.
Get Preview Thumbnails on Cragislist with a User Script
The Simple Craigslist Image PreviewGreasemonkey script has improved my life for about 6 years now. Though CL has made things a little better for non-power users lately, I've found this script to be very hard to replace.
The main difference is that it lets you hover over each image for a larger preview from the main listings page, which is nice for listings with many images (that don't fit into the grid or image view).
Find Out How Long Your iPhone Has Lasted Since Its Last Charge
The iOS Usage menu in the General Settings menu can tell you how long it's been since you last charged your phone. Anytime after your phone has reached 100% battery, unplug it and navigate to Settings > General > Usage, and scroll to where it says ""Time since last full charge"". Add up the ""Usage"" and ""Standby"" times and you'll know how long it's taken your phone to discharge from 100% to your current battery percentage.
