OtterBox Defender Series Smartphone & Tablet Covers Review


If my child drops my iPhone one more time, she won'??t have to worry about Angry Birds. It'??ll be angry mommy. Not as fun as the game.

When I got my iPad2, I had inscribed on it '??Mine. Mine. All Mine.'? Sure, I'??m going to teach my daughter about sharing. Just not with my iPad. But there she is. With her little four-year-old hands reaching out for it. How am I ever going to defend my techy toys?
