Taking Your Tech on the Road

Boot Camp feature for Friday, August 28, 2009

Taking your tech on the road. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Netbooks and laptops are designed for portability...but using them while in a car...while you're pulled over, of course, can be pretty awkward. A company called CableOrganizer.com...has some gadgets on the market designed to help you turn your vehicle into a mobile home office, including a portable desktop that can clip onto a steering wheel or the back of a headrest. Product specialist Christina Hansen....

"One that we really like is the Kurgo Auto Tray Table and it's really great. It's similar to the seatback trays that you find on an airplane."


It sells for under 25 dollars. CableOrganizer.com is also selling a travel mug that plugs into car power port or into the USB port of a computer...to keep coffee hot on the road or at your desk. And if you're short on power outlets in your car...the company's PowerStation Traveller...can handle multiple devices. It sells for about 33 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more...at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
