iPad cases and bags


Years ago, when the iPad first was released, I reviewed the Incase Travel Kit Plus for iPad and found it was perfect for carrying the iPad, Apple Bluetooth keyboard, cables and chargers, and the included stand.  Well, perfect if it only had a shoulder strap, in my opinion.  Incase has updated the iPad travel kit [...]

I've seen several reports recently saying that Apple leads the PC market if you count iPads as a PC.  Most people won't count them as PCs; I certainly don't, but there is a market for which the iPad represents all the "PC" they need.  So, if your iPad is the only PC you need, you [...]

Back in 2010, I reviewed my first Tom Bihn Ristretto for iPad bag.  It was fantastic.  I liked it because you could carry your tablet computing device and a handful of other things, without a bulky bag.  I expected the Ristretto for iPad to last a long time.  I certainly didn't expect what happened next.  We'll [...]
