Loop Case Lets You Hang Your iPad Practically Anywhere

Loop for iPad Air 1

No matter what mount or case or stand you have for your iPad, it is never universal enough to use everywhere. If you can strap it to the back of your car seat, you probably can’t display it on a tabletop. If you can mount it to a microphone stand, you probably can’t use it in the kitchen very conveniently. Loop by Mozzic hopes to change all of that. This case is designed to allow you to display your iPad Air in the perfect viewing angle just about anywhere, including under your kitchen cabinet, on the back of an airplane seat, or in the garage.

Loop is a multi-functional iPad Air case with one special feature – the integrated hanging system. A sturdy, retractable steel cable sits at the top of the case so you can pull it out and drape it over any knob, peg, or protrusion that will support it.

Get a Glimpse Inside Apple’s Secretive Internal Training Program


Once a new hire makes it through the rigorous interview process to get a job at Apple, the real training begins. Not only that, but it goes on for as long as an employee wants to take advantage of the company’s in-house “Apple University” training courses.

Apple University was established by former CEO Steve Jobs in 2008 as a way to immerse employees in the culture of the company. Classes focus on the history of Apple. Classes aren’t required, but regularly fill up.

This week, the New York Times was able to get a rare interview with three Apple employees that were willing to talk about Apple University as long as their identity was not revealed. They describe the secretive training courses as a reflection of the image that Apple presents to the world. It is “meticulously planned, with polished presentations and a gleaming veneer that masks a great deal of effort.”

Back in 2012, Blue Microphones launched a line of digital microphones that connect to your iPhone or iPad. Unfortunately, later that year, Apple changed its connector port from 30-pin to Lightning, making Blue’s Mikey and Spark Digital microphones incompatible with new generations of iOS devices.

Recently, Blue Microphones upgraded both digital mics for Apple products, so you can plug directly into your iPad 4, iPad Air, or iPad mini without needing a separate adaptor.
