I spent the morning trying to catch up on phone calls. That meant I didn’t get out of my chair once. At a certain point, however, I got to feeling quite antsy and knew I needed to do something. I haven’t run in quite a while due to an ankle strain but it was feeling better and I NEEDED to run. I also needed some loud music to motivate me. My treadmill has speakers and an iPod dock but it doesn’t get quite loud enough. On the other hand, the speakers I recently attached to an Airport Express for streaming via AirPlay get VERY loud.
So I grabbed my iPad, launched RDIO, found an album I love and set it to stream over Airplay. Now I just needed a way to secure my iPad to the treadmill so i could control the music. Enter the Joby Yogi for iPad we reviewed a few weeks ago.
I set it on the treadmill, started the music and started to run. Unfortunately it was, it was blocking the fan. No problem.
The Yogi has flexible legs that will pretty much hold the iPad any way you want. I adjusted them told hold the iPad below the fan vent and started my run.
2 1/2 miles later the album was done, I was exhausted and I needed to get back to my calls.
The Joby Gorillamobile for Apple iPad has an MSRP of $49.95. Our full review and a link to the product page can be found here.
