Posted January 25, 2012 @ 8:28 am CST by Ben Avecilla

Ever since the iPad 2 came out, I’ve always thought the Smart Cover was really neat. I like how it aligns itself to the device and how you can fold it into a stand. Only problem is I don’t have an iPad so I’ve never had much reason to own one. But with the TidyTilt, […]
