Protection Cases for iPad Air 2 and Co.

It’s been a while since I seen the Kensigton iPad Case especially for Kids. Today I get an email with advertising for the iPad Case again.

Thinking about my now 3 year old son, it’s not that bad to have one.

But beside the Kensington Case there are a lot of competitors, like i-Blason and Cooper Cases looking very similar to the Kensington, but much cheaper.


 

Update

The actual price for the Kensington case is only €24,00 and therefore the same price as the Cooper one.

 

Siri aufrufen mit Bluetooth Button

Im Auto ist es ja bekanntlich verboten das Handy auch nur in die Hand zu nehmen. Um Siri aufzurufen, muss ich aber trotzdem den Home button drücken, obwohl eigentlich das VW Multifunktionslenkrad diese Funktion haben sollte. Vielleicht habe ich diese Funktion aber auch einfach noch nicht gefunden.

Aber als Alternative gibt es einen ‚mobilen‘ Bluetooth Button von der Firma Satechi®. Bisher habe ich diese nicht auf dem Radar gehabt, finde aber das Button / Remote Angebot interessant.

Mal schauen wie lange es trotz Poststreik dauert bis ich meine Bestellung bekomme. Glücklicherweise kommen die Pakete ja zumindest noch zeitnah.

iPad3 mobile data solution

For my iPad one I bought an O2 data package with a very fair price. 200 MB data cost just 10 €.

But additionaly the offer had another plus, the 10€ are only charged when you use the mobile net of O2 in a month.

Otherwise nothing is charged. Unlicely I can’t find that data package on the O2 website anymore.

I’m searching for a data package with approximatly 500 – 1000 MB and 7.2 MBit/s. The datarate should be reduced after reaching the data limit.

No mobile provider had the pay just when you use option.

A fair price for such a data package would be 15 € in my opinion.

One possible offer was from FYVE – Prepaid Smartphone Surfen für 5,- € im Monat. which is still interesting and worth testing.

Another possible one could be from Congster, Endlos mobil surfen und günstig telefonieren für sensationelle 9,99 EUR/ Monat. hmm ?!?

iPad availability in Germany

Today the selling of the Apple iPad started in Germany. The units are very rare in the shops, so unfortunatly not everyone can buy one. So my spontaniously idea to order or buy one direct in the nearest Apple store in Hamburg was break through unavailability of a iPad for me. So the process of analyse the need for buying and owning that device starts. Ok the same process had happened with the iPhone before I decided to bought it. The really best benefit of the iDevices is the astronomical (just a image ;-)) mass of Apps. Anyone with reallife experience and good advices ?
