Geek chic: an iPad cover for every day of the week
I have always been a technology lover. Always. I blame my family. Because that’s what you do, isn’t it? Blame them for all your issues?
Our family are early gadget adopters from way back.
I remember our first colour TV. The day the VHS machine arrived. And the day the vinyl collection got swapped for shiny circular discs.
In fact, the only techie thing we were late adopting was actually owning a telephone. And Gen Ys, I’m not talking about those new-fangled, carry-in-your-pocket, thing-a-ma-jigs. No. I’m talking about the old school plug-in-the-wall-and-dial-up-phone variety. We actually didn’t have one in our house until I was about 11 or 12. If someone wanted to contact us, they phoned my aunty across the road and she wrote down the message. Which is how I remember the day my cousin was born. He weighed in at a whopping 12lbs 8oz. You can imagine how much THAT piece of notepaper was handed around.
Anyways, this is not a post about big babies. It’s about my issues, remember?
So, this early childhood education into the excitement of new gadgety things as stuck.
And now that I’m living smack bang in the middle of the gadget age, I’ve become aware that there’s an even greater upside to embracing new technology: accessories. Specifically more of them in my life.
I coveted owning an iPad for about a year till I jumped in with the iPad2 last year (iPad3 is due out next month … oh, how I hate being superseded!) and then I looked around hoping to be blown away by the covers and accessories on offer for my latest, don’t-leave-home-without-it toy.
But nothing really grabbed me, so my iPad has not been receiving any fancy schmancy accessory love – just the basics. But I think that’s about to change.
Take a look at these babies … come to your geeky mama … and oh, look, there’s one for every day of the week.
