Felix announces integrated kickstand case for iPad Air

Mobile accessories creator Felix has announced the release of its new case for iPad Air. The FlipBook Air consists of a case with an integrated kickstand, featuring the aesthetic of a book cover. Composed of faux leather, the case includes a smart cover function that wakes the iPad upon opening, and engages the sleep function when it is closed. Its patented kickstand supports both horizontal and vertical viewing, and features proprietary air bladder technology for additional protection of one's tablet.

The FlipBook for iPad Air is priced at $60, and is available in-store at Apple stores and online in black or tan finishes.

    I don't want software RAID when there's hardware RAID controllers available that remove all the RAID processes from the Mac.
