postheadericon Visualized: Smart Cover magnets can turn your Apple tablet into a FridgePad

Has the iPad 2 not proven its versatility to you yet? Well, buy one of those “don’t call it a case” Smart Covers that Apple launched with it and you’ll be able to turn your new dual-core slate into a bona fide FridgePad. Just add fridge.

postheadericon Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover vs. InCase Convertible Magazine Jacket… Fight!

By now you’ve seen Apple’s Smart Cover, right? The mind blowing cover (don’t call it a case) pretty much stole the show during yesterday’s iPad 2 press event, causing children to weep at the sight of our exploded bodies. Thing is, we’ve seen the design before. Oh sure, Apple improved upon it significantly, but there’s no mistaking its InCase Convertible Magazine Jacket heritage. See the two slug it out on video after the break in some kind of weird reverse KIRF cage match. We guess 2011 really is the year of the copycats.

postheadericon iPad 2 gets a Smart Cover

We can’t say we were expecting to be impressed by a case for the new iPad 2, but Apple’s pulled something of a surprise out its hat with its new Smart Covers for the tablet. Available in multiple colors and in your choice of polyurethane or leather variants, the covers attach to the iPad with a self-aligning magnetic hinge and can also be folded into a triangle and used as a stand. What’s more, they’ll automatically wake or put your iPad to sleep when you open or close the cover, and they even pack a microfiber lining that cleans your screen each time you flip it open. As Steve Jobs explained, Apple designed the covers right alongside the iPad itself and, as he pointed out in true sound bite fashion, “it’s not a case — it’s a cover.” Look for the poly covers to set you back $39, while the leather ones will run $69 apiece — video is after the break.

postheadericon Sony, Fujifilm patents are half-camera, half-origami

Point and shoot cameras are tricky to hold still, but the powers that be thought up a crazy fix — build bending, sliding, transforming grips right into the body of the camera. Sony’s patented the idea you see immediately above, which turns the sliding lens cover into a handle using tiny hinges (or perhaps electrorheological fluid, we’re not sure). Amazingly enough, the basic concept actually isn’t new: Sony itself references a Fujifilm patent whose cover-turned-grip protects the rear LCD instead. Neither look terribly comfortable, but which would you rather choose: a pocketable camera that snaps stable single-handed shots, or one that monopolizes your fingertips? Take a gander at one of Fujifilm’s proposed designs after the break.

postheadericon Amazon offers refunds or replacements for problem-causing Kindle covers

It’s not often you hear of a case causing technical problems with an electronic device, but that’s just what a number users have been saying about Amazon’s own Kindle Leather Cover. Apparently, the problem stems from the metal hooks used in the case — they’re designed to conduct electricity in the lighted version of the case, but in the non-lighted version they’re reportedly causing Kindles to freeze or reboot. While the company hasn’t officially confirmed the problem, Amazon has told PC Magazine that its engineering team is looking into the issue, and that it will offer a refund or replacement to anyone experiencing a problem with the case, no matter when it was purchased. Those looking to take Amazon up on that offer can email kindle-response@amazon.com.
