    Hey all...

    Since I got my 16GB touch, I wanted to make the most of this little device both hooking it up to my two favorite toys: my beloved (and aging, well) Vestax 007 mixer and of course, my new Tacoma pick-up. I looked high and low for a good looking auto window mount, and almost pulled the trigger on the Kensington (which I'm sure has a great feel.) However, I heard about the almost-too-good-to-be-true mounts offered by DealExtreme which operates out of Hong Kong, I couldn't help but let the cheap bastard in me take the $7 plunge.
    (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2029)

    And after two curious weeks, it showed up in a brown sketchy package covered in chinese writing. I opened and no kidding, it's a nice piece. Motion is as fluid as the video's on the DealExtreme site, and it came packed better than most things I get from newegg albeit covered in asian hieroglyphics and scuff marks.

    Anyways, if there was anyone feeling nervous about this mount, or waiting for the pricier Ram Mount line to come out, I'd say try this $7 beauty. Even has a silly little picture frame to put a picture of your chick in (or favorite naked celeb.) This unit wraps around the touch (which I have in an ExtremeMac case) and has two small foam "notches" that keep it from budging even on sudden screeching halts.
    Minimal shaking during drive (depends on your road conditions; Orlando's are ghet-to.) Get this mount!

    Sorry for the poor image quality. The program on the Touch is of course "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", which by the way, I wouldn't recommend watching tv while driving. But I do, and it's great.

    Mine just got here yesterday. It works great. Not to mention the suction is awesome, i doubt it will ever fall off.

    lol i already broke mine...well it still works perfectly, but the little black piece that is on the bottom that the cell phone/mp3 player/touch/iphone etc is supposed to rest on, i broke one of them off lol.

    Not really a big deal though as the 2 sides that pinch the touch so it stays in place is very strong and holds it fine.
