ProClip Tablet Headrest Mount for iPad 2

ProClipUSA.com sent me a review unit for their new tablet headrest mount and device holder. This particular holder is for the iPad 2, but they have a selection for several different tablet models. This has the same great quality as the rest of their products, and it’s going to be a great addition to the rear seat passenger in my wife’s Cadillac.

If you’re not yet familiar with ProClip, they offer a wide variety of  mounts for various electronic devices for most vehicles. You need a vehicle mount which is always custom fit for your specific make and model, and you need a device holder which will fit your phone, tablet, or GPS perfectly. Check out their complete line of vehicle mounts and device holders-I highly recommend their entire line of mounting accessories. They look and fit like factory.

Brianna approves!

Listener email
Hi guys,

I am looking for some suggestions for a good video editing package for windows. I know most (if not all) of you mainly use Apple machines but I just wondered if any of you did have any experience with video editing on the windows platform.

I have recently launched my website for covering news and reviews in the gaming world (cheap plug). I am seriously considering doing some video reviews as well as old fashioned text based and I have started to look at capture cards (if you have any info in this area that would also be greatly appreciated!)

As you can see the site is still fairly empty but we are trying to get more content onto it as quickly as possible. Anyway, as always keep up the good work and have a great weekend

Your friend in Glasgow Scotland
