The iPad is one of those devices that’s too big to fit in your pocket, but still small enough for someone to easily swipe off of a table or desk. The really bad part is that there is absolutely no way of securing the gadget to a specific spot, unlike a laptop that has a security lock slot. So what do you do? Either don’t let it out of your sight, or buy a case that can be locked down.
This iPadLock is a case that features a security lock slot, which can be used with a standard laptop locking cable to lock the device to a table or other fixture. What seems strange is that the case is made of plastic (though it is advertised as a “hard” plastic). Would it really be so hard to break off part of the case that is attached to the cable? That seems like a security risk to me. If you think that is enough to deter would-be thieves, you can get the case by itself for $40, or bundled with a cable for $65.
