Macally Bookstand case for iPad - accessory review

Macally Bookstand case for iPad - accessory review

Looking for an iPad case that doubles as a stand? Overwhelmed by the options? If you desire one that's nice and slim, your search may be over. The Macally Bookstand for iPad is a form fitting, yet protective case that can be used as a stand when in landscape.

The iPad snaps into the Macally Bookstand at each corner. This makes it very easy to take your iPad in and out of the case. It also means that the corners are the only spots on the edge of the iPad that are protected. This doesn't bother me; in fact, I prefer it. I'm a fan of slim cases that show off as much of the iPad as possible, so seeing the aluminum edges is a plus in my book. But if you're of the opposite mindset and want as much protection as possible, this case is not for you.

The front of the case is thin and kind of flimsy, but it holds up really well. About a third of the way from the inside, there is a seem in it which allows it to bend. Bending the front of the case to the back and sliding the flap into the provided slip gives the case a triangular shape. Now you can have your iPad at a nice typing angle on a table or your lap, or stand it up tall for easy viewing. I was nervous that touching the iPad would cause it to fall when having it stand tall, but this is not that case. The Macally Bookstand is nice and sturdy.

The outside of the Macally Bookstand is made from a velvet-like material that feels nice. However, it is prone to collecting lint and dirt. It is fairly obvious on the black one I've been using, but I suspect that it wouldn't look as bad on the gray one. I found that the easiest way to clean it is with an upholstery attachment on a vacuum cleaner hose - it only takes a few seconds.

If you’re looking for a slim stand case for your iPad, check out the Macally Bookstand for iPad available now from the TiPb iPad accessory store.

Apple to patch Jailbreakme.com, PDF font exploit in upcoming software update

Apple to patch Jailbreakme.com, PDF font exploit in upcoming software update

I think we all generally assumed this, but it's nice to see Apple going on record as saying they'll patch the PDF font exploit that currently allows Jailbreakme.com -- and potentially any malicious hacker out there -- to run code on an iPhone with just the tap of a web button. CNET scored the quote from an Apple spokeswoman:

"We're aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update."

iPod touch 4 case leaks show camera, flash?

iPod touch 4 case leaks show camera, flash?

As spring turns to summer and fall, iPad and iPhone leaks turn to iPod touch -- witness the images above which claim to reveal iPod touch 4 complete with camera and flash.

HardMac claims the image came from a case manufacturer, the same who leaked the iPod mini (nano) camera last year, and that Apple typically provides advance size and shape information to these manufacturers. (Though clearly not for iPhone 4).

Woz talks iPhone 4 antenna, Google, and Steve Jobs

Woz talks iPhone 4 antenna, Google, and Steve Jobs

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently held an interview at the Campus Party in Valencia, Spain. He talked about the iPhone 4's antenna problems, Apples relationship with Google, his roll at Apple, and his relationship with Steve Jobs.

Here's some of what he had to say.

On iPhone 4 antenna

  • "I have not really had a problem with the antenna... I think it’s a very tiny, tiny problem that is blown out of proportion because there are a lot of people who want to accuse Apple of a mistake only because Apple has been so good with its products, creating the products that we all love."

  • "Even though I can cause the problem on my iPhone 4, I don’t have the problem in real usage."

  • "A problem that is imagined to exist is that much greater the more you love the product that you’re afraid won’t work"

On Google

  • "In recent times, I’ve been a little saddened to encounter the controversy between Apple and Google."

  • "I love Google, but I’m afraid it has a chance of becoming the Microsoft of the future. You remember how Microsoft used all of their ownership of the operating system to take over the browser."

On his role at Apple

  • "Although I receive a small salary from Apple, I do virtually no real work at the company."

  • "I like to be more on the outside of Apple, because I prefer to judge products objectively."

On Steve Jobs

  • "I chat with Steve Jobs now and then, from time to time, and we have never had an argument. We have always been friends. We are not close friends like we once were, spending every day together."

What do you think? Is the iPhone 4 antenna problem blown out of proportion? Are you afraid of Google becoming the next Microsoft?

My follow up question to Mr. Woz is what exactly he considers a small salary!

Check out video of the interview after the break.

Crazy next-gen iPod, iPad, and iPhone rumors

Crazy next-gen iPod, iPad, and iPhone rumors

Could Apple be getting ready to release a 7" iPad nano and re-designed iPhone 5 as early as January? Could the iPod shuffle or nano with a 1.7" screen be around the corner in September? Are bumpers going all-silicone?

Our gut says crazy talk, but iLounge has a pretty good track record on leaks so take these for what they're worth, even if it's with an ocean-sized grain of salt.

Here are some details:

Golla vs. Otterbox Defender in iPhone 4 BJJ Death Match

Golla vs. Otterbox Defender in iPhone 4 BJJ Death Match

If you had to go into a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu death match with your precious iPhone 4, which case would you be better off taking with you -- the Golla Stunt Pouch or Otterbox Defender? Soft, plush fabric with the security of a magnetic flap and belt loop, or hard plastic beneath flexible silicone in a easy on, easy off holster? That's the challenge they put to me and my husband, Antony in the debut episode of TiPb's Amazing Case, our hardcore, case vs case tests of strength, durability, and performance.

We figure if either -- or both -- of these cases can survive being slammed to the mats, rolled on and over, pinned and punished, then they can survive pretty much whatever normal, day-to-day use throws at them.

Follow on after the jump for the tale of the tape, and the give-away!

Apple investigating web-based exploit used for iOS 4, iPhone 4 Jailbreak

Apple investigating web-based exploit used for iOS 4, iPhone 4 Jailbreak

Apple is aware of the web-based exploit used to Jailbreak iOS 4 and iPhone 4, but also potentially able to allow malicious access to any iPhone -- Jailbroken or not -- and are investigating it.

While many users were thrilled at the rapidity and simplicity with which Comex et. al. delivered an iOS 4 and iPhone 4 Jailbreak, that same exploit could just as rapidly and simply be used to hack any iPhone for any reason -- including malicious ones like stealing your data.
