The phenomenal success of the iPod has seen a wealth of accessories for Apple's number one product hit the market. These range from speaker systems, to fashion covers and more recently, in-car entertainment. Hooking your iPod up to your car stereo is now a common activity and Belkin have jumped on the bandwagon with the basic, yet useful TuneDok.
The TuneDok is simply a dock or cradle which securely holds your iPod while it is in your vehicle. The TuneDok doesn't power or charge your iPod as there are no cables, but what it does provide is an intuitive storage option using your cars cup holder. Those of you without a cup holder won't find this product much use, but for the rest of us who have been provided with this wonderful invention (which admittedly, most of us probably don't even use!) the TuneDok is an excellent product.
If you are thinking your cupholder may be too big or too small for the holder, stop worrying as Belkin has cleverly included three different sized flexible cups to ensure that most cup holders in the world will accommodate this product. In fact, we tested it in three different cars and it suited all three, via a quick change of cup. Smart, innovative and simple.
The TuneDok is essentially a two piece cradle; a flexible rubber cup and a screw on iPod holder with a suction cup to ensure stability whilst on the road. To change the cup holder, you simply unscrew the cradle and screw it into the other cup holder that you wish to use. There's no annoying double sided tape, screws or mounts, which is good news for your cars interior.
The TuneDok cradle has been designed for the standard iPod, but we used an iPod nanowithout any major problems. A nice touch that Belkin should consider for future models would be adjustable side panels, to ensure the newer model iPods would fit more snugly, but again, we're being picky. We did notice however that the suction cap of the TuneDok left a mark on the back of our nano that didn't come off for a few days after use; another minor problem.
The TuneDok can also be used as a desk stand - simply unscrew the cup, flip it upside down and screw it in again. We're not sure why you'd want to use this option, but hey, it's been offered and we're not going to complain.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
