The iPad case for cool kids: The Snugg

Once upon a time I used to scoff at the iPad. I thought it was nothing more than an oversized and overpriced iPhone. And then I got my hands on one. And fell in love. The end. I adore everything about my iPad and getting the opportunity to review The Snugg iPad case has me lovin’ it even more.

The Snugg iPad case

You’ve heard of the Snugg, haven’t you? This popular iPad case  performs beautifully. And it’s not just me sayin’ this. Check out their Amazon reviews. But first things first. Let’s go into the features of this case.

Snugg review

-Cost: $34
-Versatile flip stand with two positions.
-Comes with a Lifetime Guarantee.
-Case is made from soft PU leather and is lined with velvety nubuck.
-Includes a convenient loop for stylus pen.
-The cover automatically switches the iPad screen on and off thanks to the in-built Sleep and Wake function on the iPad. When the cover is closed, your iPad will go into sleep move, saving your battery.

That last function is my favorite! I remember when Apple first released their iPad case cover that did the same thing and that pretty much sold me on wanting to purchase an iPad. I hated how that case didn’t cover the entire iPad though. This is why the Snugg rocks.

When it’s closed…

Pretty cool, huh? The Snugg is a nice quality case. I’ve been testing it by bringing it in the kitchen to look up recipes, tossing it in my bag for meetings and playing nursery tunes for Elle while I join her on the floor for tummy time. The stitching has stayed in tact and I can easily wipe off smudges with a wet cloth. So parental units…The Snugg is definitely baby-proof.

I doubt I’ll ever be doing any presenting with my iPad but if I were to, the little handle in the back is pretty nifty.

I have an iPad 2 case and I noticed that everything matched up well until I noticed the camera hole being a little off centered.

The main reason for this, I think, is because my iPad isn’t snug enough in the case. It’s not a terrible flaw but it’s something to note.

I really don’t have any other complaints about this case. I think the price point is reasonable and the quality rocks. I can use every function of the case without taking my iPad out and that’s a huge plus. I’m a lover of the color orange but the Snugg comes in a ton of colors.

Any iPad lovers in the house? What kind of case do you have on yours?

Techies unite! There’s a new charger in town…

I’m one of those techies that keep chargers everywhere. I have one in my purse. One in my car. Three around the house and one at my office. Nothing sucks more than being stuc with a dead phone or iPod. And I know you’ve been there, haven’t you? I know, darling, I know.

I have recently added a new charger to my life and I just had to share it with you.



RCA’s Portable 2 Amp USB Charger is fantastic for cell phones, eBooks and and tablets. While it can be ideal for traveling on the go, I really like to keep it around the house too.

No more fighting over a charger and a plug. With this kid, you can charge two devices at once.

When you’re ready to hit the road, toss it in your purse….

Sorry fellas. Or bookbags. This charger is a total techies must have. Oh! And you can grab it at Amazon for a smooth $20. Not baaaad.

Any other “I keep chargers everywhere” gals in the house?

POLL: Lady Gaga’s Polaroid Sunglasses

Where are my fellow tech geeks? The Consumer Electronics Show is like OUR Fashion Week. I’m already addicted to reading Mashable, CNET and other tech-y blogs, but I am in an excited frenzy when I see CES highlights.

I practically did a cartwheel when I saw Lady Gaga and the gadgets that she helped design. I wouldn’t agree with everything she said at the unveiling (nor would I agree with what she wears…ever) but I am digging the idea of having a camera and camcorder on shades. What do you think?
