OtterBox Unveils Low Cost iPad Air Cases for Educators

Otterbox UnlimitEd 3

I was talking to a 10-year-old the other day and he told me a story about a friend of his who accidentally threw his iPhone across the room after getting a fright from a prankster of an older sister. “Oh, no!” I exclaimed. He quickly noted that the iPhone was protected with an Otterbox case. It’s funny how some companies are so well known for their products that you don’t even have to get further explanation. I knew immediately that the iPhone was fine because it was safely enclosed in the toughest case on the market.

Today, Otterbox announced the launch of a line of iPad Air cases that are designed to meet the unique needs of K – 12 education. So, that 10-year-old kid who gets frightened enough to throw an iPad across the room won’t have to worry about breaking it.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: The Wizard of Oz Game

Wizard of Oz Game 5

This week’s Flashback Friday spotlight goes back to a time before video games. It goes back even further than television. The fantasy children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” was written 114 years ago by author L. Frank Baum. More than a century later, the book has been turned into board games, Broadway musicals, a number of different movies, and of course, video games.

Warner Bros., who now owns the rights to the 1939 Judy Garland film, published an iOS version of the story of Dorothy Gale and her traveling companions, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. The game itself is not a classic. However, the traditional city builder game is based on the century-old story of the young girl’s adventures over the rainbow.
