Wish Your iPad was a Typewriter? Check Out iTypeWriter

That’s right, apparently this accessory is designed to let us relieve the glory days of old, back before touchscreens, computers, and even word processor machines.

Samsung-Apple Court Case Kicks Up Even More Photos Of iPhone And iPad Prototypes

The Samsung-Apple patent wars continue to push on at full swing revealing all sorts of dirt including Samsung ignoring Google’s warnings that their designs were too close to Apple, and internal memos that show that even the iPhone was actually influenced by earlier Sony-style designs. This war doesn’t seem to be slowing down and no real victor seems in sight, but at least all these court discoveries and findings are kicking up interesting prototype/mockups that help us see the clear evolution that took place as Apple designed its various iOS-based products.

Logitech Announces Ultrathin Keyboard-Integrated Cover For iPad

Looking to turn your iPad into a handy netbook? Logitech has you covered with its new ultrathin keyboard case that it announced earlier today. The new case is designed for both the iPad 2 and new iPad, giving you a thin screen protector that also has a built-in keyboard. Similarly to Apple’s Smart Cover case, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover uses a magnetic clip to secure its iPad. According to Logitech, there is no reason to worry about battery life on the keyboard because if you were to use it for about 2 hours a day it would still have enough juice to keep it running for about six months. Not half bad at all, I’d say.
