I can put my laptop on the treadmill's operating "dashboard" and
bungee it there, but it interrupts my pace to operate the mousepad...I
need to just watch a movie or something on it instead of trying to do
email or Facebook. Poker works pretty well, though. But I can't
change any of the treadmill settings with the laptop there.
I would watch TV, but the treadmill is out on the deck. I do like to
walk on it and listen to my MP3 player and watch the birds and the
breezes; I just need to friggin' buckle down and DO it.
OMG, I just realized my sister-in-law loaned me some old Julia Child
episodes on DVD...that would be perfect! I have a headset with a long
cord even. Thanks!
