We were all set to rip on this steering wheel-mounted laptop desk when we discovered that Amazon's own users had already done it for us. The reasons why driving and blogging don't mix below.
Brilliant Hong Kong electronics maker Brando has come up with a new gadget for the spying car guy, a fake key fob with a built in spy camera. It's even got an SD slot for extended observation.
