The Good and the Bad: The Snugg’s Executive Case Cover for the iPad 4

We recently received an invitation from The Snugg (a US- and UK-based website which sells tech accessories) to review its products.  After we took stock of the many Apple accessories we owned and realized that the iPad 4 seemed the most in need of a new case, we picked The Snugg’s Executive Case Cover in Distressed Brown Leather (also available in Amazon) as the product to review.
(I know it’s a mouthful so, moving forward, we will simply call it the “iPad Case”.)
When our iPad Case came via courier a few weeks back,  we promptly retired the not-so-old existing case of the iPad 4 (which was not bad actually and in fact came from a not-so-cheap shop in Germany) and shifted to the new iPad Case.
So, after more than two weeks of using our sponsored iPad Case, here’s what we think of it.

Poverty on the streets

It can be heartbreaking sometimes, especially when the beggar is a child.
