Can an iPad ever replace my laptop or computer?

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

For many, the iPad can pretty much take over from the laptop or computer in terms of browsing, e-mailing and media viewing duties. But can you ditch your faithful computer altogether? Here are a few tips and suggestions on how you may be able to make your iPad your one and only.

Buy a Keyboard Case

Typing on any touchscreen for a long period of time can be a frustrating and inefficient experience but Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard cases are becoming slimmer, cleaner and altogether better. The Avantree Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Mini and iPad Mini Retina is just an example of the reliable budget options available. The keyboard connects to your iPad wirelessly through Bluetooth and offers a full QWERTY keypad with a comfortable and familiar typing experience. Going for a keyboard case rather than just a standalone Bluetooth keyboard gives you the benefits of added protection and the ideal viewing angle, thanks to integrated stand functions and often all-round front and back protection.


How best to reclaim your tablet this Christmas

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013


Remember when you were a child at Christmas and even though you were lucky enough to get the toy you really really wanted that year you still played with the box more?

Adults love shiny new toys – and kids are no different – so it’s inevitable that they’ll want to get their grubby little mitts on your tablet, download Angry Birds and play it till the cows come home. As there are sure to be thousands of tablets wrapped up under the tree this year how do you ensure you actually get to use yours?

1. Disguise it 

Ok, so I guess this one is a long shot. When they realise BBC iPlayer is coming from a previously innocuous looking black book they’ll know something isn’t quite right. Book style cases are available for pretty much every device and can give your tablet a sleek low-profile with a touch of anonymity. The beautiful DODOcase range for the iPad Mini and the Mini Retina  – which is handcrafted in San Francisco using traditional book binding techniques – offers a classic minimalist style which is sure to keep the youngsters away (Click the image to see the DODOcase for Google Nexus 2 2013). If you want to take it a step further and really confuse then maybe this Klevercase is more your bag.
