GoPad "Solves" Tablet Portability With Bulky Metal Frame, Suspenders
I'm usually quite the startup fan, especially when it comes to refined or radical Apple accessories. We cover them frequently, and, for the most part, I'm pretty enthusiastic about all the fancy kit making its way from indie to mainstream. But then I saw this: Good god. The GoPad, designed to remedy the nuisance and inconvenience (huh?) of tablet ergonomics, is a laughable proposition. For $89, this elderly gentleman is asking you to clamp a giant metal frame to your iPad, sling it over your back and chest suspenders-style, and walk around in public with a straight face. You know, because holding and using the device like you're supposed to is so darned difficult. Hey, you can even get one for your Kindle Fire! Somebody, please buy this thing. [gallery link="file"]
