I haven't a clue what to put on it to protect the darn thing. Unboxed it on Tuesday, synced it to my computer, loaded all my apps and video and now I don't know what to do with the thing. So far it's just lived comfortably on my cushiony bed as a night time reader, video/music player but it remains inside its cellophane packaging. I can't see the cost of the smart cover because it doesn't stay on and won't protect the back. All the other cases seem so big and bulky and not conducive for being used at the bedside. The TARGUS rotating case is meant for tabletop use. So my lovely new toy has been grounded to her room until I find her some decent, protective clothes to wear. it was so much easier with her older brother. I just slipped him into an Apple case in the store and he was ready to go. But his little sister seems far better off naked and fancy free. My fault. I had to give her a feminine personality. Everyone knows we females take forever to decide on our wardrobe and accessories.
