Excerpt: Manufacturers would prefer to regularly pillage your wallet by selling you a screen for every situation — but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Excerpt: Attached to the two current iPad models using an iPad Smart Cover-style magnetic rail, the silver aluminum-backed lid perfectly matches the backs of Apple’s tablets: once it’s on an iPad, you can very easily see how Apple could offer two-piece “MacBook Touch” laptops if it wanted to corner the transforming tablet market.
