    After having an iPad for a while, I found that sometimes I just wanna to be hands free such as when watching a movie on my iPad. So I googled 'ipad stand' and found out that these small accessories could cost you quite a bit!!!

    So this is what I have come up with...

    firstly, get a decent book stand, bend the foot bit over. And finally let the book stand wear a sock if you want protect the back of you ipad from scratching.

    Well, is it simple enough?

    Excellent.
    Think I'll pass on the sock though.

    the sock part do give more friction and make the stand more stable.:)
