iPads are great for car travel, especially those lucky buggers in the back seat who get to kick back and watch movies the whole trip while Dad fights traffic and has to listen to whatever's on the radio. (What, me bitter?)
Of course, maybe they're not so lucky if they have to hold the tablet in their lap the whole way, craning their necks, tiring their arms, and never being able to keep the screen steady for more than a few seconds at a time. The horror. The horror!
One option is to mount the iPad on the back of the front-seat headrest. And you know the only thing better than one iPad headrest mount? You got it: two of 'em.
(Note that although the Amazon product page lists mounts for other devices -- Kindle Fire, Google Nexus, etc. -- the BOGO deal is good only for the iPad 2/3/4 version.)
Granted, not everyone has two iPads that need mounting in the same car, but what about one iPad in two cars? What about buying one mount for yourself and another for someone else? It is gift-giving season, after all.
The mount promises universal compatibility, with straps that adjust to "almost any car's headrest." It allows for full access to the iPad's ports and buttons and has a soft interior lining to keep your tablet comfy. And as we all know, tablet comfort is paramount!
If you check the many Amazon customer reviews, you'll see that the mount has earned widespread praise and has an average of 4.6 stars out of 5. Truly, this is the king of iPad headrest mounts. And you get two for the price of one! Thoughts?
Bonus deal: Not sure if you've had one too many? The BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer can reveal your blood alcohol content in less than a minute. It normally sells for $149.99, but you can get one for just $49.99 when you apply coupon code CNET at checkout. This pocket-friendly little gizmo (read our review here) pairs with your smartphone to show your results, estimate when you'll return to sobriety, and even share your status with others. That's an insanely good deal on a device that could help save lives -- starting with your own.
