    was out on the front porch last night and while a friend of mine was handing my iPad back to me I accidentally dropped it several feet down on hard cement, oooops! I thought there would be a good chance of damage but turns out there was just a tiny scratch on the lower left corner, thank goodness!! Guess the iPad is quite durable afterall

    Brrrrrrrrrr! Shivers. That's a nightmare to me, so much that my iPad hardly leaves its folio case because it doesn't slip in one's hands...

    Question, was it in a case or a skin, or was it naked? I keep mine in a Street Skin, which gives it a bit more to hold onto and a little protection in case it falls.

    Glad to here it's still working. I can't imagine what I would do if mine fell and I was without for a few days till I could get another.

    I heard a thud on the tile floor soon after my daughter asked to use it.she tried to put it up on counter and failed . Not a scratch. She was petrified though.

    Good thing your iPad wasn't damaged! iPads are hard to come by, but you can always make more children!

    Obviously it didn't land on the glass. Since there aren't any moving parts low impact isn't a problem with the device.

    Oh I just bet she was, Doc.! Poor thing! How old is she? I just dropped mine a minutes ago, on hardwood floor. It is in a case, though, but landed on the end. It was so loud!

    All the way down, I was like "OMG, OMG!"

    it seems fine though. I am glad that yours is okay!

    From the ad -- (I added the underlined part)
    It looks like a great idea, but I can probably make the exact same thing for a buck or two with stuff from the craft department at Wal-Mart!
