Air has been out for 3 months now and all the sleeves sold in stores are still made for previous. Is the demand for sleeves just that hurting? Im guessing people would rather have case than sleeve? I have to resort to ebay.

Jesus Christ, tell me you're joking about being insulted.

Order online, there are plenty. You don't have to resort to ebay, you can buy from Amazon.com, it's another website.

Not sure about sleeves although my ipad 4 sleeve works with my air. There is a shortage of good back covers in Australia, I had to get my Belkin Shield from Hong Kong.

This is a good point. Since the Air is slightly smaller, any sleeve for the previous generation (full size) iPads will work.

A strange choice of word

How is it possible to insult someone by not offering for sale a particular item? I can't imagine unless the decision is directed personally against an individual's trait such as ethnic background or lack of intelligence.

I'm sad to say but the best sleeve I've owned for my iPad Air is a Samsung leather sleeve that was for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 I believe. I found it in a bargain bin for $10 when I owned a Nexus 10 thinking the tablet would fit in it as it was a similar shape/size to the Galaxy Tab lineup, but it didn't. When I got my Air and didn't have a case yet I tried the Air in the thing and it fit like a glove, it was perfect. But sleeves aren't my thing so I've moved on to a full on case.


Here is a link to the sleeve I have that is available on Amazon. Not sure you'll find it cheaper now!

She's used to it.

surprisingly no. i still can't believe how many people respond to all her threads. it's ridiculous. the ignore user option is also worthless bc if that person creates a thread you still see the thread. I've been on other forums where the person is literally hidden and you see absolutely nothing by them. i wish they would make their ignore feature a little better.

I agree. I ignored some one last week and it wasn't what I hoped for.

yeah it doesn't work if the person creates a thread. and then it notifies you in a thread that you are ignoring that person. not sure the point if you can't truly hide and ignore the person.

I think Apple just realizes that they can sell more smart covers/cases if they choose not to carry 3rd party vendors products in their stores. It's taken a very long while for anything to be available in Apple Stores.
