Logitech may have done some radical rethinking concerning its name recently, but the company is still sticking with what they’ve done best for the past 34 years—making tech accessories. So it makes sense that the first product to emerge from this rash rebranding is none other than a family of iPad cases.
Can you spot anything amiss in today's Best Buy Deal of the Day page? Anything out of the ordinary? Look a little closer. Still don't see it? Here's a better look:
While an iPad is robotically handcrafted by a Foxconn slave, these Feit iPad cases are lovingly made in a family-owned atelier in Florence. At least from the photos, the details show. Because these leather sleeves are lovely.
Oh my god is that an old Mac? How are you carrying that? No, jack for brains, it's an iPad case. And it's awesome.
You love your Instagram photos, but if they've got a drawback it's that they're awfully intangible. Now you can turn them into a beautiful case for your iPad.
Akai's original MPC revolutionized music forever by combining all of the tools a producer needs—a sampler, mixer, multi-track recorder and editor—in one device. The new ultra-portable iPad version of the hardware might do the same thing for a new generation.
As an Incase product owner I'm pretty used to the idea of my iPad and MacBook cases being simple black and white affairs that perform their jobs well with little fanfare (and a high price).
Ponzi-schemester Bernie Madoff has already gone through the shame of seeing hundreds of his belongings auctioned off, but now he'll have to live with the knowledge that lawyers are dressing their iPads in cases made from his old sweaters.
Tablets are great, and clutching them is a big heaping part of the fun! But you need a case, because you don't want your baby slate to crack or scuff or shatter. Put slipping it in a pillow is idiotic.
BinderPad is an iPad case that can fit inside a 3 ring binder. What's so special about that? For the kids man! It's completely stealth so students can hide it in their binders and look like they're studying when they're actually on their iPad.
Your iPad is expensive and delicate, and one side of it is made out of glass. So breaking it is a very real, and very shitty prospect. Most cases will protect against bruises. This one protects against hammer strikes.
Over on Kickstarter there's a nifty stand—that fits all sorts of tablets—just crying out for you to invest a dollar or more to put it into production. Apparently it sucks onto the back of the tablet, with the other end clamped to a table like a vice, or with magnets or even with another suction cap if you'd rather…
On one hand I applaud anyone using the iPad in the kitchen—after all, there are plenty of fine recipe apps out there. But spending $5 on a disposable plastic wrap so it doesn't get damaged? C'mon—you're wasting your money, and our planet.
Believe me, I'd try if I thought it'd work. What I do love about the Kork case, made from recycled cork, is the clean packaging. All the relevant outputs and ports are catered for too, and it costs $67. [Kork]
