This might be a nice accessory to have when taking the iPad out by the pool/beach.

"The WaterGuard Waterproof Case guards against any wet environment that iPad might be exposed to. It is a perfect companion when when you use your iPad at the beach, near the pool side, in the bathtub or at the kitchen table. It provides great protection when you get stuck in a rainstorm or accidentally drop you bag on a wet surface. When using the WaterGuard case, the iPad can be slipped directly into the WaterGuard pocket and the transparent surface provides easy interaction with the keyboard and navigation interface."

This is good, but i dont trust water proof things... but then again why would you be so close to the water with an electrical system.

Still remember the day when we still serviced Sony Walkmans...

Customer: I had my walkman at the beach on vacation and ever since I cant eject the tape and auto reverse no longer works.

Me: Hello ... McFly!



Sand + Water - common sense = Sony Walkmans cant swim :eek:

So we would always mark the labor code SWCS.

Splish, splash.

For those with the capability to work from home and access to a pool, perhaps a heated one, or the beach, I can see where a waterproof iPad with an app like "Desktop" could prove to be very beneficial.

I can see taking an iPad out on a boating trip, but my concern with the baggy solution is heat and humidity buildup. There will probably be better units that come out later with ventilation and hard shells.

In case this is something you might be interested in: Apple iPad Case :: Coming Soon! // OtterBox.com

But if any case is water proof it may also be airtight so whatever buildup you have inside the case won't ventilate out.

I have the OtterBox Defender series for my iPhone and it protects the iPhone well from a little rain, but that's about it for protection from water.

I've been wondering how the touchscreen would work in those too. Not enough that I'll buy one. When I'm in the pool, I am swimming not reading.

waterproof does not have to mean air tight. There are materials out there that allow air movement, while keeping things dry. And some waterproof cases have one-way vents in them.
