The minimal office by Frank Chimero

Frank Chimero has his gadget set up squeezed down to what he considers a bare minimum. I could probably do without the ipad, but, that’s just me. I found this to be a fascinating read and he has a lot of great tips which I personally ascribe to, such as using your machine as a tool and not storage.

Simple Ipad Sleeve – Grey Wool Felt from byrd & belle

I received a Kindle for my birthday (thanks M!) and I was thinking I was going to make a little case for it by buying some 2MM felt from Fitzfelt, but at $19 for an 18″ square plus tax and shipping, it’s almost more economical to buy it already made.

Snug fit and simple design; no closures, no snaps, just thick wool felt. Perfect for protecting your ipad while you tote it around in your bag. Sleeve also makes a nice thick pad on which to lay your ipad when using it on a hard surface.
