Mad About your iPad?
Of course, I mean "mad" as in crazy about in this blog post title!
Technology comes at us pretty darn fast these days and even I am having some trouble keeping up. It seems as if a newer device than the one you just bought is coming out before you unwrap yours.
Because I bought my iPad mini on the first day it was offered, I have been impatient in expecting that I could get an appropriate case for it. I used one I had for another device because I bought Apple's smartcover and an extra adapter when I bought my mini. So, it was protected while I was using it.
Quite by accident, I found this $20 pink and purple case for 7" tablets while shopping at Target. As you can see my mini with the smartcover folded back fits in the case. It is a little snug because I have a silicon bumper on the back of the iPad. That's OK. It makes it heavier but it is easily removed. I like things to be non permanent so I can use them with other devices.
I found a stylus holder yesterday at Office Maxx. It had two stylus holders in the box for $10. Since I still have an iPad 1 in my office, that is fine. it works on that one too. The only problem is that the expensive stylus I bought (shown resting to the far left in the extra strap) is too thin to stay tightly in the groove for the stylus holder.
I had bought this pink one for $4 at Wegman's for my Christmas stocking and it fits (and matches) perfectly. It will be fine.
My iPad mini is adored. I want to take good care of it since it is so small, it will fit easily in the front pocket of my briefcase. I even own a pocketbook that has a front pocket I can fit it in.
