May iPad Accessory-A-Day Giveaway: Nedrelow BOOK

May iPad Accessory-A-Day Giveaway
Nedrelow BOOK
Nedrelow BOOK

Designed by two Minnesotan bibliophiles, BOOK began as a project to produce artist's monographs. After designing and constructing their first book, Nedrelow realized that the book jacket is a time-tested method of protection applicable to other materials beyond pages. While they believe that that BOOK is a great companion for digital devices, they also believe in the power of paper books. A portion of the profits from BOOK will be used toward producing artists' books at Location Books.

The Nedrelow BOOK protects the iPad in transit and makes it possible to store the device inconspicuously on a shelf with real books. The BOOK is handcrafted, protecting the iPad from impact and scratches with an interior sleeve made with natural felt. This felt is 100 percent renewable and sustainable wool. Closing the hard cover is easy using the integrated Velcro strip.

Each BOOK is handmade in a studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota by two artists.

iPad Now Available in 10 Countries Worldwide

The iPad is available in nine countries outside the US today. After postponed shipping due to short supplies and high US demand, pre-orders have arrived and Apple stores opened early to long lines of iPad buyers. Tokyo's Ginza Apple store had a line of 1,200 people waiting to get their hands on Apple's latest creation.

Review: Griffin Elan Passport Folio Case For iPad


By now you've probably had your iPad for a few weeks and are settling into using it and integrating it into your lifestyle. Well... that is, of course, only if you live in these great United States.  Those of you outside of the U.S. still drooling and waiting for your iPad will have to read this review with an eye to the future.   Anyway, you have probably come to realize that "naked" use of the iPad isn't the greatest experience.  I, of course, mean that the iPad is naked not the user.  I can't speak to that other type of experience.  The iPad looks great, but holding it naked isn't comfortable.  If you take your iPad out of the house a lot then carrying it naked can be scary from a protection standpoint.  The good news is that many manufacturers are now coming out with a wide array of cases.

Griffin Elan Passport for iPad Review 0

The Passport is a leather folio case.  I was waiting for one of these.  I have felt that this would be an important item and was what I envisioned carrying my iPad around in.  I like the leather folio image.  Think about it.  Even if you are wearing shorts and a t-shirt, if you are walking around with a leather folio, you get some instant credibility.  "Wow that guy must be some sort of important executive.  I mean he's gotta be, he's carrying around a leather thing.  Maybe he is one of those eccentric millionaire types who doesn't go for the buttoned down suit and tie look the 'man' expects." Certain items have this effect.  For example, one of those aluminium-looking briefcases.  Wow, if you see a guy with one of those, you've got to be instantly interested.  Is he a drug dealer, a spy, or some guy paying off a ransom?  These are the sorts of comments from strangers that I strive for and my fragile ego needs.
