Review: ZAGGmate Keyboard/Case for the iPad

  • December 26, 2010

Santa Claus, in the guise of my lovely wife, gifted me this year with a great new geek gadget: the ZAGGmate.

Even if there were elevation to speak of, the luminous inhabitants would be unable to climb a slope--and anything resembling a fall would be instantly fatal. Once a planetary revolution, on the shortest day of the year, something wondrous happens: in small, localized pockets, for some reason, the gravity all but vanishes. The soil immediately leaps into the air, forming trunks and branches that would be otherwise...
