Keep your iPad in a case
The iPad is a thin piece of aluminum and glass that costs between $500 and $1000 and one drop could be fatal. I realize that some people are loathe to cloak their beautiful Apple devices in a case, but if you take your device out of the house, it could save you an expensive repair. Cases are very personal items, like apparel or a bag, and everyone has a unique sense of style. One case that I consistenly rely on is the SmartCase ($57-59) from Waterfield designs. They're made in San Francisco from high-quality materials and offer some of the best protection in the business.
