Here's a sad tale. :( I had my Nexus 7 ever since the beginning, and I took it everywhere. Case - schmase, I went naked. I read absolutely tons on it, and I was actually wearing out a spot on the lower corner where I flip pages. Now that I'm retired, I could never afford my million dollar book habit, thank goodness for you-know-what.
Now, along comes the new puppy dog. I'm sunning myself outside, when she sits nicely on my lap. All of a sudden 'SQUIRREL!". My tablet was in my hand, and it only dropped an inch on the patio. Smash! That glass is thinner than an eggshell.
So I have this fancy pleather case now. I'm still watching out for puppy dogs...
ps. Not so sad, the new one is a zillion times better, and I never could find anything cheaper on the Chinese market. Happy birthday to me!
