The iPod Touch (or iPhone if you must) is a great way of catching up on TV and movies while travelling, but if you fancy a little pre-sleep viewing it's a nuisance to hold while you sit up in bed. We've featured the DIY iPod Touch lamp stand before, but that's not a suitable option for taking on the road. You can try resting it against a book or alarm clock, but any movement — such as laughter — tends to make it fall over. My current simple-but-effective solution is to use a plate stand (available in craft or homewares shops for a couple of bucks) to rest the iPod on, which keeps it stable and takes up no room in my travel bag. How do you handle on-road video viewing in miniature? Useful tips are welcome in the comments.
