    I stood the iPad up using the smart cover as a triangle on my friends table to FaceTime with my dad. Well, the iPad fell straight on it's face. Luckily I only got a slight nick that us barely noticeable. Damn PowerSupport for taking so long with the crystal film. Oh well, what can I do. :).

    In fact you can't even see it when the screen is on but I'm still upset.

    I'd have a 2 year insurance policy from worth ave group too.

    How'd it just fall over? I thought it was designed to stand up.

    Persona ly I thought the smart cover was not very "smart". I liked the leather case they released with the iPad 1 and thought something similar would have been MUCH smarter! I didn't purchase a smart cover because of that.

    Sorry you had troubles. I am glad it wasn't more major though!! I know how you feel.. I am super OCD with my stuff.. I have screen protectors but if they get a nick or stretch I replace them ASAP because it bugs me.

    Look on the bright side. It got a nick, but it didn't get nicked.

    Relax, don't do it

    Relax. It's really not that important. The iPad is meant to exist in the real world, with you, part of your experiences. It's not a precious snowflake to revere and protect.

    You own it, it doesn't own you.

    Smart cover isn't designed to stand up in portrait mode.

    I haven't done anything with them yet. So all I know is they took my money. Haven't had to use them yet.

    There is no word 'stupidness' in English.
    Stupidity is your case;)

    It was $130 for two years, and I had to just provide my name, address, and credit card. :). And which model of iPad I bought. No receipt, no nothing.

    Whatever it is, I'll never stand my iPad up in portrait mode with the smart cover again. Here is to hoping the crystal film covers it.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. I've finally gotten around to enjoying my iPad and that means not using a case or a screen protector. The only time I use a case is if I'm going to be outside or planning an all-day trip.

    I've found I baby my devices and never truly use them the way they are intended. I keep it in immaculate condition only to what, get trade in value on the newer model, only to do the same thing all over again. A vicious cycle.

    I agree. But I don't usually even sell them. I gave them to my wife and she completely doesnt care. My power support crystal film should be here soon, I'll throw that on and I bet I won't even see it anymore. Like I said, you can't even see it at all when the screen is on. Thank God :)

    Sadly, I can't post a picture. It would be ridiculously hard to capture. Like I said, you can't even see it unless you are under a light and are looking for it very diligently. When it dropped on it's face I was in a well light room and i examined it for damage. Otherwise I would have never known.

    Can you explain how you were using the smart cover to stand it up in portrait mode? I can't get my head around it.

    LOL good question. I said it was my stupidity :). I folded it into a triangle, and stood it up in portrait. it was doing good for a little bit.
