If you’ve ever used a tablet in the kitchen, you know there’s a uniquely optimum viewing angle that’s just right for you. And you’re likely going to want to get it out of the cooking area, yet still keep it viewable, right? You’re set if you have one of those cookbook stands to prop it up against, but if you don’t, you might want to check out the Steelie Mobile Device Holder from makers Frank Vogel and Paul Turner. It’s a magnetic ball head mount that clicks into place and allows a wide range of movement to get just the right viewing angle. The magnetic socket also allows you to attach it to any metallic surface, like a refrigerator, range hood, or locker. There’s even a version for smartphones that’s great for the dashboard.

    A magnet strong enough to hold such a device securely, sounds like a TERRIBLE idea so close to the hard drives in these devices.
