Not sure if this has been discussed so just wanted to put it out there. When i got my ipad one of my colleagues told me to be careful while using the magnetic cover as it snaps of if you try and use it as a kind of pivot while holding it or moving it. I was like yeah of course i know that. come this morning i had the ipad on my nightstand and tried to pick it up and inadeverently used the base as if it was firmly connected. the ipad flew out and luckily landed on my bed so no damage done. however just keep in mind. although we all know it's not to be used for picking up, i think our minds are conditioned to work in a certain way and since the cover fits so flush you might also run into a similar problem so be extra careful. just wanted to get the word out. Please note that this is in no way a rant against the cover. i think its great and i love it. It more or less reminds me of how electric cars need noise generating speakers cos they are so silent and people might not notice em.
