    Anyone have a good case or stand recommendation for reading in bed?
    I'm finding the Ipad cumbersome for reading while being horizontal. Discuss

    I really like the Yoobao Magic case. It pretty much does it all. It gets all the angles and is comfortable on the lap.

    A very good case. It's also atheistically pleasant BTW.

    I bought that Wedge pillow with the funny white straps thingie also, but haven't got it yet. Don't see how it's going to be that much of an improvement, but you can't have too many cases. Impossible. :D

    I colored my straps black with a Sharpie. : )

    Yes my Sharpie is all ready for that task.

    Sharpie to the rescue again. :D

    I mean, the white straps would look GREAT on a white iPad. :D

    Heheh, first thing I thought of when I saw it as well.
    I think that Yoobao one looks great but I have a thing against leather cases, which me not being a vegetarian is weird. Pillows are working fine for me, for now.

    I might be obvious, but I still haven't found anything better (or less worse?) than the Apple case.

    I hated my Apple case. The mid divider was too flimsy and just didn't work very well.

    I've had the WedgePad now for several months and the white straps are not distracting or an issue at all. I'd be much more concerned about the Sharpie ink getting on my iPad screen. That would bother me an awful lot more.

    A separate concern I have about the WedgePad are the styroform beads that it is filled with. They are becoming pulverized so that the iPad doesn't sit up as straight as it did when new, and this is after only 2 or 3 months. It's just like when bean bag chairs become less "plump" and full as they got older. I may look for new stuffing for it at a crafts store or I'm also considering a Prop Up stand ( It looks like a more durable alternative.

    Wedgepad. A++

    The white straps do not bother me at all.

    In bed I simply put the Apple official iPad case in typing stand position and lay it on my angled lap. Thus hands-free reading possible. As one pointed out, Apple official case is the best IMHO.

    I like the Sliq also. Are they shipping theses? Price? I couldn't get half the links on their website to work.

    I just wedge it into one of the creases of my 6 pack abs. Works great. :eek:

    That Aspen Shops link you provided is asking to do some system setup for Zen Shopping cart. With the recent MacDefender malware I am leery to do that. :confused:

    I'm really considering this one. It seems that it would be very stable while in the bed with the wide legs. Also the legs can be removed and it will be more like a simple stand for a table. So many things to consider
