Two Reviews: Cocoon GRID-IT Wrap and Skooba Design Cable Stable Mini

image

Not too long ago I used and reviewed the Waterfield Keyboard Travel Express. Today I wanted to talk about two more organizational products I have been using. These are designed to help organize and transport your electronics and accessories. I will show you Cocoon’s product called the Grid-It Wrap and Skooba Designs Cable Stable Mini. While they have some different purposes, they both share a common goal or task of helping to keep your stuff organized.

The Grid-It Wrap I have been using is for the iPad.



My Zagg!

image

I wanted to talk about Zagg's Invisible Shield and a great customer service experience I had this past Thursday. You always hear about the negative experiences people have in general so, I thought I would share a good one.

For Father's Day, my wife had ordered me a custom ZaggSkin for the back of my tablet. There is a mall in Holyoke MA called the Holyoke Mall at Ingleside. It's about an hour away from me but I go here once and a while because they have an Apple Store there also. On one of my previous trips, I spotted a Zagg Mall Cart.



Review: Arkon MyHandstand™ iPad Hand Holder

image

Arkon has just released their MyHandstand iPad Hand Holder. This comes in both the original iPad and iPad 2 flavors. I had the opportunity to try the version for the iPad 1 out.

Essentially, there is an adjustable hand strap with a swivel attached on the back of a flexible TPU case. The iPad installs pretty easily and is held securely in place. But it’s also very easy to remove it. That’s important because this may not be a case you would use as your every day case.



Review: Waterfield Keyboard Travel Express

image

 

Thanks to Waterfield Designs for sending on over the Keyboard Travel Express for review.  The Keyboard Travel Express is an accessory bag to carry your Apple Keyboard, cables, mouse, pad, etc. These bags are designed and made here in the USA, in San Francisco to be exact. This was perfect timing when the bag arrived because I was heading on vacation.

The bag is made of ballistic nylon. It's black and has a stripe of color on one end. The stripe color of mine is Copper.



Review: WeKreat Bento Part 2 of 3 (iPad 1)

image

I’m going to get right into it. As I stated before, it is compatible with the iPad 2 and 1.

The iPad 1 can be placed in this battery pack in the glass down position. It sits in there well, just like the Zaggmate. Your iPad does need to be naked.



Review: WeKreat Bento Part 1 of 3 (unboxing)

image

 

The WeKreat Bento is a multifunctional accessory for the iPad 2 which is also backwards compatible with the iPad 1. This is going to be a three part review over the next couple of weeks. I have been using this for a few days now. I will post my thoughts at the end of the week.

 

 

  1. General un-boxing and product specs
  2. iPad 1 Usage
  3. iPad 2 Usage

In the package you get a lot.



Review: Speck CorePack-10 for iPad & 10" Netbooks

image

In my search to find the perfect tablet friendly bag, I came across the Speck CorePack 10. Thanks to Speck for sending this over for me to play with. What really intrigued me was that I have never seen a bag or design like this before.

Strap: The strap is not remove-able and is sewn to the bag. I was worried that the strap would not be long enough like the Timbuk2 Messenger. Those worries quickly disappeared as there is a lot of strap provided. It’s very soft and comfortable to wear and use.



Review: Speck Dust Jacket case for iPad

image

 

 

The Speck Dust Jacket for iPad has been out for a while. This is the first time I have had an opportunity to use it. There is no iPad 2 version.

This case is Folio style which is made of Leatherette (made to look and feel like leather) and Polypropylene.



Review: Sena UltraSlim w/ Smart Cover for iPad 2

image

The fine folks over at Sena had sent me an Ultraslim leather sleeve for the iPad 2 to test out. This case is compatible with the Apple Smart cover also. The only problem I faced was that I unfortunately do not own an iPad 2. However, disaster was diverted, as my friend Joyce volunteered to assist. The below review is by Joyce, unedited by me.



Review: ZAGGsparq 2.0

image

 

The Zaggsparq 2.0 is the latest external battery pack I was testing out with the iPad. This is also the first battery from Zagg that I have tried.
