    Well had my iPad sitting on the banister when my friends dog jumped up and knocked it off the balcony. Missed the concrete pad below by inches and landed perfectly flat on it's back on the grass. No scratches or dents! I watched it fall in slow motion spinning and landing perfectly flat :eek:

    Couldn't be more relieved.

    Happy Easter everybody. :D

    Wow! That's incredible. I bet it was a difficult walk to go downstairs to retrieve it. If your iPad was a cat with 9 lives, it just used 10 of them.

    It doesn't seem like such a good idea to leave the iPad on a banister 2 stories up...:rolleyes:

    Great story though. Your really lucky nothing happened to the iPad.

    Whilst it looked like slow motion, I bet it was all over in a "Flash" :D

    I bet you turned "Blue" with worry, before your face glowed with a "Ray" of happiness seeing it was undamaged. :D

    $500 iPad < $3000 purebread German Shepard lol :p she is only 6 months old tho. It was my fault none-the-less so I could only put 100% of the blame on myself.

    Yes, the stars were perfectly aligned today.

    IMO pets > gadgets, whether they're pure breed or mutts.
