Grab a Grablet for your Tablet, and it's Made in the USA

Since CES, I've had a chance to play with the Grablet which is a soft rubber shell for the iPad with special hooks for the included fabric latches.  The latches can be configured in a wide variety of ways to allow the user to grip, hold and display an iPad 2 as desired.  It's similar to the OtterBox Latch but less bulky and it's a custom fit for the iPad (with versions for the both the original and the iPad 2) unlike the OtterBox which is more of a general purpose holder for any 10" tablet.

A new poll released by Pew confirms what everyone suspected: tablet sales are soaring. The poll found that 19% of U.S. adults own a tablet computer, with the number of those owning a tablet nearly doubling between mid-December and early January — from 10% to 19%. Ebook ownership also increased from 10 to 19%. Pew said that this rise is especially striking, given that it followed a period in which there wasn't much change. They attributed the rise to holiday gift-giving, and the release of tablet computers by Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Free Windows desktop and MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on your iPad

I haven't tried this, but the video says that you can take advantage of a free app and service that lets you have Windows and Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on your iPad. Seems too good to be true. But maybe give it a try.
