    So here I am looking at the revolutionary smart cover but no ipad. Online ordering has definitely taken the wind out of my sails. Ship date is April 1. Just wanted to vent.

    Try sleeping with your SmartCover. It might help. Ya know... snuggling with it to relieve the stress and all.

    You think that's bad... I've downloaded all sorts of free apps so far, but have no iPad to load them onto. :(

    You're one of those disgusting cretins who will spend 500+ on a tablet but can't spare 99c for a quality app.

    They were all free. So, what is this about? Return them if you don't like them.

    i played with the smart cover at BB today (my iPad hasn't shipped yet...) I'm not impressed, no way this thing is worth 39 bucks, let alone 69. It doesn't even fasten to the back when flipped around! You have to hold the iPad with 2 hands or it starts to roll up on itself. If the iPad had one magnet on the back side close to the volume, it would be fine. But 39 bucks? ehhh.

    Make it into the triangle stand and use it as a pillow. Or maybe see if the magnets stick to the metal plate in your head like mine does. You do have a metal plate, right? :eek:

    Man that is such a tease! Don't worry. Like people say, the longer you wait for something the more grateful you will be for having it! :)

    I would go to an Apple store by the closest one is 87 miles away. Already went to best buy and they don't even have a floor model to play around with, which is probably for the better cause I'm sure there would have been a line even for that!

    I've never even held one of these. I guess what someone said is right..I can just envision the ipad I guess.

    This is why I did not order a smart cover, dock or AV connector when I placed my iPad 2 order Friday night. I knew I'd get the accessories long before the device and suffer the pangs of want.

    I had thought I wouldn't bother with the smart cover. I don't like that it leaves the back unprotected. But I was in the Apple Store today and got to play with one. It's kinda cool.

    I still think it is inadequate protection and therefore far too overpriced. I prefer to wait for a 3rd party or Smart Cover 2.0 that incorporates a skin on the back.
