I have been scouring the interwebs for that super cool Dharma/Apple background that they have on iPad in this video, but cant find anything worth while. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I like how this is presented. Reminds me of those commercials where they show a "How many times has this happened to you" moments in greyscale showing someone with left-of-the-bell-curve intelligence attempting something very simple but just can't get the hang of it.

Trying to watch Flash on a Powerbook G4. Ha ha ha. Apple should fix that too!

That kind of review is something I would expect to see from something like PC World. It is obvious that the intent of the case is not to be a "hard-stand" that acts as some sort of pedestal. It is for the device to stand on end - while doing something like watching a movie - not typing, not pushing buttons, and not doing something that doesn't make logical sense (double-negative's included). Step it up MacLife.

I'm not completely sure it was intended to be used, necessarily, while its sitting up.I mean it seems like the main thing is to make it so you can see it and watch a movie without holding it- One thing that seems negative to me about having it in the case would be that you couldnt dock it..but I guess sometimes you just have to "pick your poison"

When Apple presented this product, they made it very clear this was intended for watching movies and videos.  However, if you place it flat on the surface with the slightly angled view, you will then be able to use the iPad without it "wobbling".

Sad to say, what I got from this video was that I had totally been missing out on how the case stand works. I have been using it slightly elevated from the fold. I didn't even know that the weird little tab on the back allowed the case to stand up!  In my own defense, the Apple person who sold me the case with my iPad didn't know what the tab was for either.
