Of all things, I was in the passenger seat of a car and sat my iPad 3 on the dashboard to answer a phone call, and it slid off and fell edge down on the floor mat - maybe a 3 foot fall onto carpet. Didn't seem like a bad fall and I didn't even bother looking at it right away. Went to use it tonight and the entire screen is shattered. Damn. I was going to wait for the iPad 5 to come out before replacing it, but now I'm either faced with paying the $299 for a new screen or just biting the bullet and buying a 4. Of course I have a 64 gig with cellular so it would be substantially more for the 4. Ugh. I have it in an Incipio Smart Feather case so I guess whatever I do I will be getting a case with more protection.
