Thanks to its 21 built-in magnets, the iPad’s Smart Cover makes a great fridge magnet.

Just clip it to the fridge. It’s pretty sturdy. It clings to the fridge surprisingly strongly. There’s little danger of it coming loose, even when swiping your finger across the screen.

It’s another reason to invest in a $40-$70 Smart Cover when you get an iPad 2.

    LOL good idea, but bad if it falls off the hinges.

    Yes and you can also load your company logo and other advertising material on a slideshow and set it going and stick the cover and iPad to your car door so it’s like an interactive magnetic sign for your car.

    Kinda kooky, but this is the kind of “fallout” that cements Apple products in people’s minds.

    Just keep in mind that refrigerator magnets have been linked to reduced efficiency of the appliance and reduced working life of the appliance too.

    I’ll admit this much, the Smart Covers for the iPad 2 are sexy, sexy, and sexy, as are all of Apple’s products. However, don’t you guys feel that Apple sacrifices looks for function?

    The Smart Cover only covers 1/2 of the iPad 2. Don’t any of you find that problematic? You can read up some more about it here: goo.gl/aExGx

    Not exactly. They wanted to protect the screen (the main part of the gadget itself) and maintain the design beautiful. A tough decision but successful.
