- Simple, Functional, Different sized cups

A simple yet intuitive device which saves space in your car
Price$ 39.95 (AUD)
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.

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.
