Affordable iPad Cases with the signature Marc Jacobs Style

Well-known fashion designer Marc Jacobs has released a new case for the iPad. It was only a matter of time before Marc Jacobs threw his hat into the ring and entered the world of iPad cases. Marc has  released silicone cases, sleeves, and even traditional looking cases.

Each Cases cost from $38 to $58 on Neiman Marcus.com

‘Beautiful Modeler’ an app that adds new functionality to your iPad

Interactive Fabrications is a pair of applications that lets you sculpt applicationsmodeling-clay with your fingers, thanks to the iPad’s multi-touch capabilities.

Each finger is used to control a single touch point in the model, with multiple layers working to build up 3D volume. As the controller is connected over the wireless network, it can be moved freely to change the viewing angle of the model.

The model itself is presented on the main display rather than on the controller itself; this prevents occlusion of the model when sculpting with the whole hand. the controller can be rotated or flipped to sculpt from a range of angles.

While it isn’t that precise as other hardware-based offerings out there, at least it does help you experience a more tangible effort. Too bad the app cannot be found on the App Store just yet, and there isn’t even any word on whether it will be arriving there at all either.

Check out a video of the sculpting in action:

Croc iPad Case probably the most expensive case. What a Croc!

What a Croc!……Designed by Jennifer Tattanelli this crocodile iPad cover was discovered in Florence, Capital of Tuscany. Tattanelli has deep roots in the city’s traditional luxury leather goods industry. She take over the family business, creating leather jackets and bags that bring new meaning to the phrase “like buttah.”

After seeing other cases that have been unveiled by many companies, that were all style and no substance, Tattanelli decided she could do better. And she has. Her own Croc iPad Case. Her gorgeous crocodile case comes in two color to chose,one is espresso and black which is not shown in the picture. It is not only protective, but can be folded back to prop up an iPad in various positions for presentations, and includes an interior pocket for documents and business cards.

This stuff is tough. It’s also got kick-ass shopping, particularly its beautifully hand-crafted leather goods that’s why it is probably the most expensive Case that has been released for a whopping $1599.

if the suede lining happens to get dirty,just dust the stain with baby power and brush it with a soft brush. Says Tattanelli.

Hard Candy come out with a luxurious Stylus and Pen for iPad & iPhone

Hard Candy is not the first to come out with a pen or stylus combo to use on capacitive touchscreens like those of the iPad and iPhone, but their stylus might be the most luxurious one yet. It is made of a polished chrome aluminum finish that makes it look and feel like an expensive pen. The Pen itself weigh 4.2 ounces. It is chromed out combination of a rubber-domed touch pen on one side, and an ink pen on the other, both capped for protection.It is compatible with iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch.

As you can see, because of its comparatively stylish and  distinctive look and feel the Hard Candy iPad Stylus and Pen might be more expensive for the price of $34.95 than other iPad / iPhone Stylus’ out there, but it’s also the nicest one on the market to date.

 

iPad Engraving available now at Apple online store for FREE!

Apple has just launched free iPad Engraving, just in time for the holiday season. Free, as in $0: for no additional cost, you can add a laser-engraved message onto a new iPad’s aluminum backside. Allowing customers to add up to two lines of custom text to the rear of any iPad ordered through the company’s online store.

The concept of iDevices engraving is not new,.. Back in July, a rumor surfaced claiming that Apple would begin offering engraving on the iPad, much as it does with its iPod line, but after three months, the chances to see such a service offered by the company looked more and more trigger… Until today.

Note that the engraving will delay your shipment by up to 3 days, compared to non-engraved iPads shipping under 24 hours. This delay may increase over time if the service proves to be successful, so if you plan to buy a personalized iPad as a Christmas gift, you may want to place your order within the next month or so, to be sure your iPad will be ready on time.

Apple’s sales and refund policy specifically states, “Personalized iPods (e.g., engraved or customized in any way) may not be returned for refund or exchange under any circumstances unless such product is Dead on Arrival.” The policy hasn’t yet been updated for the iPad, but it won’t surprise us at all if the same policy holds true for Apple’s far more expensive tablet.

The Docking and Storage Base for iPod, iPhone, iPad

This is the Docking and Storage Base, and it’s designed to keep your desk area neat and tidy.I’m sure this concept is going to bring smiles to many iGeeks (me included not actually.lol) and keep us lusting for it to become a reality! The Docking and Storage Base is a convenient tray that fits under the screen of the iMac or PC and docks everything ‘i’; iPod, iPhone, iPad. It covers the area below and to the back of the screen allowing you to sync, charge, store and display up to 3 devices. Two of the docks are towards the end of the ramp so that they don’t obstruct the main screen, allowing them to be used as secondary screens (clever!). looks like a scene from Mad Max.lol.

The base is basically a handy way to keep all your iStuff lined up in a row, rather than have them laying about all over the place.

The front strip even has a couple of free USB ports for your convenience.

The only wires you’ll see are the ones for a firewire and a power source. Two storage cabinets for other smaller electronic devices, documents and pens, complete this panel’s features.

I’m not much of an iGeek, but i have to say, this would be a must have for me.
I love the sleek, practicality of the design. easy access, easy use. Perfect ..totally Awesome!..

This should definitely be picked up by someone and turned into a reality…it’s brilliant.

because of the its neatly thing you can work peacefully…

Thanks Radhika

Vogel’s Mounting Solution for iPad on the move

Vogel’s introduces a mounting solution for iPad for use at home, at work and on the move. Vogel’s Mount & Cover System® for the iPad is a unique system for mounting Apple’s highly successful tablet – on the wall, in the car, and on your desk or table. Because the iPad is such a compelling device, you want it to be accessible everywhere. The Vogel’s Mount & Cover System, drawing on Vogel’s proven experience in secure mounting systems, lets you safely mount your iPad wherever you need it.

The Vogel mount system quite eliminates the need of an iPad stand as it sticks the iPad firmly on any surface. You may hang the iPad to a wall, or stick it on a table surface and even rotate it 360 degrees, so there’s no need for a stand to prop it up. Unlike with the stand, you don’t have to hold the iPad in your hand. You can stick the iPad to a slew of places like maybe on your mirror to simultaneously work and also dress up in the morning. If travelling, stick it to the back surface of the seat ahead for easier viewing. Similarly you can mount the iPad to almost about any surface, you can think of. The Vogel kit will include a WallMount and BaseCover system, which has a protective cover for iPad and a special handles like WallMount, TabletMount, or CarMount. The Vogel iPad accessories will start selling in the by earlier 2011 for about $101.

For the best seat on the road

The CarMount is securely attached to the headrest of the driver’s or passenger’s seat, ready for the iPad to be attached.

With one simple click, you can mount the iPad with BaseCover onto the CarMount.

Back seat travelers have a great view of the display and can easily control the iPad, to make every journey a pleasure.

For any position: portrait or landscape

As part of the Mount & Cover System, Vogel’s have also developed the TableStand, for free-standing support of the iPad. With the TableStand the iPad can be placed in either portrait or landscape position, on a table, bookshelf or desk, for viewing your favorite photos, movies or TV shows.

For easy viewing

Vogel’s WallMount is part of the Mount & Cover System. It is a discrete and stylishly designed button that can be screwed onto almost any surface. An iPad with BaseCover can then be easily clicked onto the WallMount, so it hangs safely in place, ready for viewing films, photos, recipes, or for other applications. Once mounted, the iPad can be freely rotated through 360 degrees, and the locking system ensures stable and secure support. And unmounting the iPad is just as easy. The WallMount can be attached to any suitable wall. With just one screw, the WallMount is held securely in place. Thanks to the flexibility of the BaseCover and WallMount, you can use your iPad wherever you like, as an alarm clock in the bedroom, as a music player or digital photo display in the living room or as a cookbook in the kitchen. Turn the iPad freely to position it in portrait or landscape mode on the WallMount.

Support and protection for your iPad

Vogel’s BaseCover is the heart of the Mount & Cover system. The BaseCover offers all round protection for the iPad and comes with the special aluminium connector (patent pending), that enables the iPad to be easily mounted onto a range of different mounts and supports such as the WallMount, the Table Stand and the CarMount.

The BaseCover design and special tactile coating adds minimal additional bulk to the iPad, whilst making it extremely comfortable to hold.


The BaseCover can also be reversed to protect the front of your iPad, and the side buttons, when travelling.


The BaseCover ships as standard with one WallMount in the box. Additional WallMounts can be purchased separately.
