When Apple released the iPad mini with Retina display, some people were disappointed because it was slightly thicker than the original.  That meant it was probable that many accessories for the original wouldn't work with the newest model.  That's not the case with the Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & [...]

Most cases for tech gear have a certain "look".  Whether it's made of fabric or leather, you can usually tell at a glance that the bag or case contains tech gear inside.  That's fine, if you don't mind having a bag that advertises "expensive gear in here!"  If you prefer to camouflage your gear a [...]

As I've said before, I do like a quirky case for my electronics.  The IH-IM1106 Composition Book Case for iPad mini from iHome certainly meets the quirky criteria.  It's about the same size and certainly has the same appearance as those composition notebooks so familiar to school children.  You could even fill in the label [...]

Levenger is offering another beautiful entry in their line of tech cases.  The Pocquettes iPad mini Travel Case is made of textured full-grain leather.  If it's anything like my Pocquette's checkbook cover, the leather is buttery soft but strong.  The case measures 7.5" wide X 9" tall X 0.5" thick. It has two zippered pockets on [...]

When I first try a new gadget, it can take me a while to finally find the case I prefer for it.  That's been true for my iPad mini, too.  When I got that first iPad years ago, I wanted a back cover that was clear, to let the beauty of the aluminum back show [...]

I've tried a lot of iPad mini cases - Apple's Smart Cover, Khomo full-body case, sleeves, zipper pouches, and tiny messenger-style bags.  This beautiful iPad mini Sleeve from Mujjo is unlike any I've tried before.  It's a sleeve case, as you can see, but it's not made of the normal fabric, leather, or faux leather [...]
