    Yep,from an old iPod Nano 2nd gen box. Take out the plate that holds the iPod, turn it 45 degrees and affix it under large part of the box. You can store your power adapter in the box.

    Let me give the feedback from the other side of the spectrum: we take it everywhere, and we love it on the hikes. Nothing better than home educating our children in nature, outdoors. iPad is the first device that really enabled us to do that.
    Finally I have a way to raise techno savvy kids naturally. Who cares about scratch? It is just a device that is going be absolite in a few years. What we use it is important. Worship no technology, appreciate nature, your fame.y and relax.
    That is my motto, and while I drive a beat up car, I do by the best tools for education and yes we do take care of it, but use it in all places.
    Who is right? We both Re. You are for your life dynamics and I am for mine. Now the interesting question is how people use their iPads? Like you or like me or somewhere between?
    But end of the day who cares?
    Perhaps apple do and I hope they do. Thus far I managed to take good care of our two months old iPad
    Used heavily among the entire family and that includes a 4 & 6 years old. We climbed couple of mountains, went for number of hikes and be outdoors as often we could.
    It is holding up and I do not dare to expose it to water but I'd like to see an iPad in my lifetime that is water resistant and if I choose to sit in the bottom of the swimming pool, it can come with me and keep my company. When Apple can do that, I bet the iPads will be 100% scratch resistant too. What do you think?

    One can always dream of features Apple could add and when we are done, we have a 12 pound iPad with a folding keyboard, a thicker package, and far more costly because of the extra materials required to render it scratch resistant. The problem is how much cost can be added to the device to make it waterproof so it can be used at the bottom of the pool will customers tolerate? As for scratch resistance, not an issue. It really depends upon how you take care of your iPad.

    Here are a couple of pics of the recipe book stand I use as an i-pad stand. As you can see, it is a perfect size, lightweight, three positional and folds flat when required. 3.99 is not bad is it? I've just found a slight fault with the bluetooth keyboard I bought from Asda, it appears to be missing a pound sign!

    Bought a wire photo frame stand from dollar store and reworked the corners to fit the iPad, only it doesn't have room for the dock connector on the bottom, so of I want portrait I have to put it up side down. Added friction sheet rolled onto the frame for stability and protection (for my iPad).
