Isn’t that one awesome MommaKT. I don’t think my dad needs a binder, but I love it. And could probably convert it into a notepad or something else for him.

The ipad case is just awesome. I would have to have one just like that made for my ipad.

The ipad case is slick. The bullet proof binder is just super-dope 🙂
