    Have you had any near misses damaging your iPad yet?

    Today I put my Ipad3 into its belkin slip and put it into my 'manbag'

    I arrived at work and parked up. I was late and it was raining.

    There is a steep ramp down from this carpark to my office, I slipped on my backside and landed
    on my manbag and hand. With a bleeding hand and some trepidation I opened the manbag, and
    unzipped the slipcase expecting to see shards of glass...

    The iPad is still pristine! Phew

    Tell us your near misses.

    None so far. I have thought about consulting a plastic surgeon about the pros and cons of
    grafting the iPad to my person to reduce the risk of a catastrophe. Can't make up my mind whether to go with a forearm or thigh.

    Never mind the iPad!!! How is your hand? Were you hurt? Are you going to be okay? Oh irony of irony, we value our things and their safety more than our very own limbs. Iduffer, hope YOU didn't suffer too much.

    I might loose the nail on my pinkie, but nothing broken, thank you for asking :)
    I guess I made security laugh, they will have the CCTV footage on repeat.
