    Did you know that if you fold up the iPad smart cover into a triangle and pop it off, you can use the inside (grayish soft part) as a screen cleaner? Just like those little cloths you usually get with sunglasses! Also, did you know the magnet on the smart cover is strong enough to hold up your iPad? (I don't suggest doing this, but you can! (I saw the Apple guy at Best Buy do it))

    Angry The iPad 2 has a security flaw with the smart cover
    If you use a passcode it is almost useless due to a flaw that allows people to bypass the passcode with a smart cover.

    day bag
    Just got an Ipad 2 and smart cover. Want to carry it with me plus a few other things like my Cannon G11 camera and a couple of small personal items. Was looking at the Kenneth Cole Ogio Day Bag because it is not large and looks nice. Anyone have any experience as to whether the stuff I listed would fit???

    Thanks

    I found a great case for my ipad 2 on bbpbags.com. It was pretty cheap and there was lots of different colors to choose from. I would definitely recommend this case since it protects the front and back of the ipad. They also have a protective film for the screen for $3. You really can't go wrong.

    Hows it holding up? My last case broke pretty quickly, I'm looking for something to last a little longer!

    I just usually go for the aftermarket accessories and sales items. You can end up paying just as much for accessories as you do for the device, especially when it comes to Apple products.

    Yesterday, I picked up a metal Ipad stand for $9.99. It gets the job done and is solid. It sure beats the $69.99 for the plastic stands on the shelf.

    Some of the prices for Apple accessories are Insane. They sell a MagicBar for your MacBook that does nothing but prop up the back end. They want $69.99. You have got to be kidding me. Go to the hardware store, get a strip of 2 guage aluminum piping and some felt strips. Total cost -- $2.99.

    The only accessory I paid for at cost was the third party magic cover.

    The only thing I don't like about the smart cover is that the felt does not clean the screen--it leaves smudge bars on the screen. This is a design flaw that should be addressed.

    Hah, I've been using my sleeve. I feel like a bad owner now! I wonder if there actually is a specific screen wiping cloth that Apple have. (Even though I'd probably have to donate a kidney to buy it. So expensive).

    My Macbook came with a black chamois cloth screen wipe. Not sure why they don't do the same with the Ipad.

    Just go into any dollar store and get a pack of chamois optical cloths for $1. Definately don't purchase from a computer or store. You will probably be charged $29.99 for a 4-inch cloth.

    Looks very versatile (as we were told many times in the video!) but not sure its good for non-business types like myself. But certainly lots of good ideas for the workplace! Impressed.

    I really like my speck fitfolio. I'm sure it's been covered here before. Even if/when the bungee cord becomes useless, it still has nice positions. Mine is a month old and the bungee cord shows no sign of wear yet.

    My iPad Mini was in an inexpensive PU leather smart case, which I really liked, except that I felt my Mini needed more protection from my 4 year old grandson. So, I just bought this case:

    http://www.case-mate.com/iPad-Mini-C...reme-Cases.asp

    It fits snugly, and adds a little heft, and is comparable to the Otterbox Defender (I hope "meets or exceeds US military testing" is enough protection from my grandson) but in a few more colors. It does not have the solid cover over the screen, like the Defender, but it has the built-in screen protector film and is very responsive to touch. I really like the Emerald/Chartreuse color combination. Just thought I would share.
