For those of you rueing the fact that your iPad’s Smart Cover doesn’t protect your sleek baby’s bum, here’re two new options from Belkin — one of which practically gives your iPad a whole matching ensemble.
The Emerge 024 (above) is a $40 kit that contains a perforated backing that snaps onto the back of the iPad 2 and four colored inserts that match Apple’s Smart Cover colors.
For Londoners, the Snap Shield Secure ($40) rejects color in favor of translucency; it’s a thin plastic backing with “an integrated steel strip that holds the Smart Cover flat against the case when it is open.”

Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large.
