Here's what happened. In my bedroom I have an old fashioned tv, you know the big ones that weigh a ton. I had my brand new iPad 2 on top when all of a sudden while I was moving something it crashed into the tv making the tv fall directly onto my iPad. My heart stopped when I saw that heavy old crap tv laying on my iPad. I pulled it out and checked it and it had 0 damage. My smart cover however has a big dent right in the front, can you imagine if it wasn't for that beautiful cover my entire device would have been destroyed. I notice no damage but I am going to exchange it when my local Target gets a new supply in just to be on the safe side. I guess the smart cover really protects the screen from such freak accidents.
