- Flexible Steel Neck, Stereo line-out jack, Dock Connector
It’s a little on the pricey side, but the TuneFlex’s adjustable steel neck ensures your iPod will be in the best position possible and it also offers a line-out jack and dock connector for extra accessories.
Price$ 89.95 (AUD)
Griffin's TuneFlex is an intuitive device which conveniently cradles and charges your iPod iPod nano when in the car. Plugging into any accessory outlet (yes, that's a cigarette lighter), the TuneFlex has a flexible steel neck that allows your iPod to sit in any number of positions: no more scrambling to grab your iPod as it falls to the floor on those sharp bends.
The black TuneFlex is essentially a two piece unit; the cradle and the charger. These two parts are connected by a flexible steel neck, which can be bent and moved into any number of different shapes. This design is very intuitive and allows you to position your iPod in the most convenient location possible.
Similar in design to Belkin's TuneBase FM for iPod nano, but without the FM transmitter option, the TuneFlex does offer other features besides a charging cradle. A built in stereo line-out audio jack near the lighter plug lets you attach a number of optional accessories. This means the TuneFlex can essentially be used to play your tunes directly through your car's stereo, although you'll need to purchase a cable and have an input on your stereo to do so.
The TuneFlex also includes a pass-through iPod dock connector that lets you use other peripherals. This connector is located at the bottom of the cradle and opens up plenty of convenient options for use with other devices. For example, if you already own an FM transmitter with a dock connector (such as the XtremeMac AirPlay2) you can plug this into the bottom of the TuneFlex and it essentially becomes a device similar to the Belkin TuneBase FM for iPod nano.
Purely as an on the road charging option the TuneFlex has its advantages, most notably its flexible steel neck and the absence of annoying cables and wires. Its disadvantage is price; at slightly under $90 it's not inexpensive, especially if you plan to use other accessories in tandem.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
