Mounting The iPad To Your Machine

There are always different ways of using your iPad, I try and use it any situation, I usually have it sitting next to my desk on the right side of the screen. The way this HoverBar works is that it mounts on the back of the The HoverBar fits all iPad 2 models and attaches to all iMacs and Apple Displays with an L-shaped desk stand, priced at $79.99 its a bit on the high side but has a solid build.

Griffin iPad 2 Intellicase

When I first got the iPad the first thing I wanted was a decent case so I automatically checkout Griffin to see what they had, and they had a nice selection of covers, and I did the same thing when I got the iPad 2. But with the iPad 2 it seemed that a lot of manufacturers were having difficulty putting together a decent and functional protective case, I didn’t want just a sleeve or something fashionable, I wanted a case that would make it easy for me to watch shows and movies on my iPad 2 in any situation and protect it while I’m moving. The magnetic case from Apple sucks cause it keeps falling off and their have been a few situations where the iPad ends up falling on my face, and thats not good.

With the Griffin Intellicase your iPad 2 is held securely in place and you can place it in a standing or sitting position based on your viewing needs. I for one do love Griffin products because they are made with functionality and quality in mind.

Vogel RingO Mounts

I have been looking at iPad Mounts for a while now that could be mounted in different locations all over the house. I tend to use my iPad for many different applications, controlling music in the house, playing Pandora while sitting at my desk, reading lots of different items on the iPad. I found the Wallee mount but for some reason it seems to get lost in the delivery so in my search I have found the Vogel Mounts. For $70 you get the case and the Vogel Wall Mount which you can rotate the iPad in any way and its a simple case to use. Then they have other mounts such as the Car Mount and Flex Mount for use with the same case which makes it a versatile case. I like the Flex Mount because you can position it where you need it. You have to drill these mounts into the wall and then attach the case to them, but they do have an adhesive mount if you can’t drill into the wall. Overall I think these mounts are very cool especially that you can use different mounts with it, and it also works with products other then the iPad.

2011 Year of the Pads

Tablets

There were are lot of big launches in 2010 but looks like 2011 will be the launch of all kinds of tablets from Windows, Android, Blackberry and don’t forget Apple. The iPad 2 seems its to going to get a revamp with a better screen, just as good as the iPhone 4, maybe a few other things like a better speaker, and dual docking ports so you can use it in landscape and portrait mode. Then there is the HTC which is going to be interesting as I am a big fan of HTC products.

  • HTC Pad – Some sort of announcement in February, I’m looking forward to what they have lined up.
  • BlackBerry PlayBook – Expected in March
  • Apple iPad 2 – Yes a New One, expect it around April
  • Asus Eee Pad – Android or Windows 7, Release date around April
  • Dell Streak 7 and Dell Streak 10 – Most probably Android
