Airline movies, for the most part, suck. It’s much better to rent a movie, download a podcast or even listen to music on your portable device. The problem I have found is that after about twenty minutes of holding your device, your arm gets tired. Also, try to fall asleep with the iPod on your lap. Maybe you will get lucky and it won’t roll off your leg under the wheels on the darn drink cart. The flight attendants drive those things like Indy Racers down the aisle. Your iPod is no match for a crazed flight attendant behind one of those carts.
It sure would be nice if there was a way to attach it to something, anything so that you can watch videos without having the feeling that your arm is about to fall off. Well, it’s off to the labs we have gone to uncover a pretty nice solution. Clip it to the snack tray in front of you. Ever taste airline food? You aren’t going to want to eat that slop! Might as well use the tray table for something useful, like mounting your MP3 player, smartphone, iPhone, whatever!
Scope these pictures out. We’re sure these will work out better that your lap. These mounts are spring loaded and expand from 3.77 to 5 inches so it will accept devices in a case or skin as well as without.
