From the "why didn't I think of that" department:
I have to tell you about gadget that I saw at CES for protecting your tablet computer. It's basically some rubber balls and a rubberband to hold them on the four corners of the tablet. If you drop your tablet it will likely hit the rubber balls before it hits (and breaks) your tablet. It is deceptively simple and yet brilliantly effective. It really seemed to work pretty well. And then, just to add to the brilliance of the whole thing, they called it iBallz. Pretty funny. Innovation is still alive.
