On my fridge I have a magnetic bottle opener shaped like a pint of beer and a magnetic dead Kenny from South Park. Those are pretty cool, I suppose, but they pale in comparison to having an Apple iPad as an extra large fridge magnet. And that’s exactly what you can have with the FridgePad.
You may have already seen a picture of the iPad mounted to someones kitchen wall, effectively turning it into a mini-monitor for cooking entertainment. With the FridgePad, you can do the same, except your $500+ iPad is magnetically attached to, well, your fridge. It sounds silly, but this product from Woodford Design could actually be useful in some situations. Unfortunately, as a large case with a magnet on the back, it’s hard to justify the $75 asking price, don’t you think? Although it is much cheaper than those LG Internet fridges. Look for the FridgePad on Amazon some time soon.[CrunchGear via Woodford Design]
