Back in December, a month before the iPad was announced and unveiled, I asked, among other questions:
If you’re supposed to watch video on it, how do you prop it up?
Holding it in your hands? Flat on a table seems like the wrong
angle entirely; but a fold-out “arm” to prop it up, à la a
picture frame, seems clumsy and inelegant.
Apple’s answer: hold it in your hands, lay it flat on a table or in your lap, or put it in a case that can prop it up. I don’t keep mine in a case, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting Magnetic North’s MoviePeg for iPad. I got mine a few days ago, and it’s great. I’ll be using it to watch the Yankees beat the Red Sox this weekend.
