The best iPad case for kids

Kian's iPad case
After about 3 years of use, my son’s iPad case is ready for replacement. I would sell the iPad before I would allow him to use it without a case, so the loss of “the big green monster” is distressing. The case I purchased with the iPad was a $15 or $20 impulse buy, but it has allowed Kian’s iPad to survive countless drops and bumps over the years. Not a scratch to the silicon case or the iPad. You can see the lime green case in the photo above. It’s quite bulky, particularly around the corners.

For the last several months though, Kian found a way to completely destroy the previously indestructible case. You see, Kian has started losing his baby teeth, so he’s decided to chew on the silicon case to soothe the aching pain. You can see what’s left of the case in the photo below. Swiss cheese, and barely staying on the iPad at this point.

Thankfully, the name of the company was on the back of the case. I’m placing my order for the latest model M-Edge case pronto.

M-Edge SuperShellThe M-Edge SuperShell now sells for $35, quite an increase form when I bought it a few years ago. But quite frankly, it was well worth it. Kian dropped that iPad on tile flooring so many times I lost count. Each time it just bounced to rest without so much as a scuff. I can’t recommend this case enough. If your kid(s) have an iPad, or you’re just a klutz, this thing is a life-saver.

But who uses a pen anymore?

Scribble Pen
I came across this nifty little piece of frivolous consumerism the other day and thought it would be about the coolest thing in the history of man to own… about 15 years ago.

The Scribble Pen ($150) is capable of producing virtually any color ink on the fly. It features a color sensor on one end of the pen which you use to ‘scan’ something to choose the color you want to write with, then it mixes the ink in the barrel of the pen to do it. Pretty cool. If only I had it way back in the day when I actually used pens to, you know, write something.

I can’t remember the last time I wrote something by hand beyond signing the back of a check or a quick sticky note. Who uses a pen anymore?

Delete your Facebook? Hmmmm.

I love Facebook, but I’m under no illusion that Facebook has my best interest in mind. This video tells us what Facebook does in a fairly humorous way.
