    No backlight?

    The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has been great in these one and a half year of use with my iPad 3 and 4, but the biggest problem is that it can’t be used with any cases. However, the new leather Smart Case for iPad Air from Apple is so attractive that I don’t know how to choose between them this time.

    Ok, this device was announced recently. The MFI controller support… a long time ago. Announce the MFI game controller soon please.

    This looks really nice. Doesn’t bother me that Apple didnt do something similar because no doubt it would have been more expensive.
