For those who can't use their cell phones while driving... 

... because of those irritating local laws, well, the New York Times has no sympathy for you! (In a four columns wide story across Page One, no less.)

But with the holidays coming, here's your perfect gift: the Laptop Steering Wheel Desk, available online from the "electronics" section at Amazon.

After this gift-giving season ("hint, hint" to your family and friends) you'll be able to heed the law while driving along your way conversing by webcam, checking e-mail, blogging, playing Warcraft, or finishing off that report overdue to be handed in at your destination. Whatever!

Provides a handy "drink storage surface" too -- but keep 'em non-alcoholic to stay within the law.

If you're in any doubt, let the user product reviews win you over.
