Kensington KeyLite Ultra Slim Touch Keyboard Folio Review

on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

The one thing I dislike about using my iPad is the on-screen keyboard, and it seems many people agree with me – evidenced by the sheer number of Bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases on the iPad accessories market.  Typing a quick email on an iPad is fine, but typing anything longer is slow and error-filled. Read More…

Sena Borsetta Genuine Leather Purse/Case for iPad 2 Review

on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Although I use my iPad 2 everyday, I don’t always carry it with me when I’m out of the house.  When I do want to take it along, I usually have to carry a second bag because I don’t want to wedge it in my normal handbag that’s already loaded up with my stuff.  I’veRead More…

United SGP Argos iPad 2 Case Review

on Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

After wanting one for what felt like forever, I finally bought an iPad 2. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. I am an unapologetic Apple fanboy (Mac user since 1988) and the iPad just makes me more impossible to be around when the discussion turns to tech. But despite theRead More…

There are many people that roll their eyes when iPad and other tablet owners pair a physical Bluetooth keyboard with their device instead of using the onscreen keyboard.

on Saturday, March 12th, 2011

While I wait for my iPad 2 to be delivered, I thought I’d shop around for a case. I ordered one of the covers with it, but I may be carrying this iPad with me more than the original, so I will probably want to protect it a bit more. I happened upon a greatRead More…
