With the purchase of any new piece of technology, I always look for ways to stop scratches, knocks and knicks. Because, you can ask my family, at some point I am going to drop whatever it is; if I think quickly enough, I’ll stick my foot out and it will bounce and land on grass and not on the cement I’m standing on, but nine times out of ten, I ain’t that fast. So I choose to protect against the inevitable. That’s where these iPad Kicks from BlueLounge come in. They are small thin strips of silicone that raise your iPad off the surface it’s resting on keeping it from getting scratches and from slipping around.
