Don't-Miss Tablet accessory Stories
Zippered case provides in-use screen protection at the cost of much usability.
Stowable handles and a memory foam interior give this case a nice balance between protection and convenience.
The Cobra Courier is a minimalist's iPad bag built with premium nylon and leather. Apart from some minor gripes, this is a great choice if you don't need much more than your iPad for the day (and if you don't mind carrying a "man bag").
We've added two new reviews to to our collection of iPad shells and skins: Ten One Design's Particle Case + Pogo Sketch and ModulR's iPad Case + Cover package.
The Particle Case + Pogo Sketch doesn't provide much protection or many extra features beyond the integrated stylus holder, and that feature comes with drawbacks of its own.
ModulR's iPad Case + Cover Package is a clever system, and the case and Quick Stand work wonderfully together. If the stand’s lack of easy portability isn’t a hindrance, the package is a superb way to prop and mount your iPad while you work and play.
Whether you're viewing video and photos hands-free, typing the next great American novella, or just keeping your iPad secure when charging and syncing, an iPad stand is a useful add-on. We've got reviews of three new iPad stands this week: Griffin's Loop, Thought Out's Stabile, and LapWorks' Recliner.
The Recliner provides a very sturdy base for an iPad when watching video or using an external keyboard, and it offers a wide range of angles. But it's bulky and a bit clunky to use, and it isn't as versatile or attractive as a number of other products in the same price range.
Griffin Technology's Loop stand for the iPad is simple and inexpensive, but it's also sturdy and versatile.
Thanks to its weight and size, the Stabile is, as its name suggests, exceptionally stable. But it's also less versatile than some competing products.
IK Multimedia's $40 AmpliTube iRig and Griffin Technology's $30 GuitarConnect Cable let you connect your guitar to your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. James Galbraith tries them out to see how well they work.
Our collection of reviews of iPad bags, packs, and slings continues to grow. New this week are reviews of Booq's Mamba Shift M Denim laptop/iPad backpack, M-Edge's Journey Bag, Timbuk2's Slingshot, Tom Bihn's Co-Pilot, and Waterfield Designs' Muzetto.
