Apple’s new smart covers do a lot of cool things for the iPad 2, but protecting the shiny aluminum back isn’t one of them. The Xgearlive iPad 2 Smart Cover Enhancer ($35) lets you still use that $38 magnetic flap while providing added security against back-stabbing encounters. Made from vaguely described “polycarbonate material” covered with a rubberized coating, XGearlive is currently taking pre-orders now which will ship April 18th. The best part is, there’s no need to be ashamed about this kind of “enhancer” showing up on your credit card bill.
