The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect

Not so smart cover, the sequel

I'm not the only one disappointed with Apple's iPad 2 so-called smart cover. Here's web designer Khoi Vinh:

 

I’m really having a hard time with the Smart Cover. It’s more difficult to fold back than it should be, and it comes unhinged (i.e., the magnets detach) far too easily. And, not that I expected it to provide any protection for the device’s vulnerable and apparently dent-prone metal back, but because it doesn’t it’s not a complete solution, to my mind. If you ever expect to drop your iPad (I do) you’ll need something more than this. When the Smart Cover was announced I thought it was an improvement over the basically inept case that Apple produced for its first iPad; I still agree with that sentiment, but I now think it’s only a very modest improvement.
