M.C. Hammer Presents The ZAGGmate iPad Case

Years ago I met M.C. Hammer at MTV, where I worked at the time. Hammer is the nicest man -- polite, friendly and outgoing. After he finished his “Behind The Music” interview, we rode the elevator down 23 floors to the lobby, and M.C. was charming.

On that day I was dressed in black cotton velveteen trousers, with white accents.
Hammer said: “I really like your white socks, dear.”
I replied: “Thank you, M.C.  I've always loved the look of spats.”
Smiling, M.C. Hammer said: “Me too!”
Sweet memory. He is such a people-person!

M.C. Hammer & Stephanie
As the public knows, M.C. Hammer made a lot of money with his music and lost it all. He spent his fortune on family, friends and people-in-need, as well as, lived a lavish lifestyle. What is less known is, M.C. survived bankruptcy to release more albums and become a music manager of other recording artists. Today he's a rapper, entertainer, preacher, long-time family man [married to Stephanie for 25 years] and a successful entrepreneur. As it turns out, M.C. Hammer was an early technogeek and is now an internet mogul.

One of the gadgets he promotes, the ZAGGmate Case, is a (genius!) ipad accessory. It's a strong, thin aluminum case that converts into a bluetooth, wireless keyboard. Used as a protective case, you can drop your ipad without damaging it. Remove your ipad, and the case becomes a stand with an innovative hinge. Prop the ipad up to type on a real keyboard. Now you can send emails, write blog posts, take notes, or use text editing applications with ease, like you do on a laptop.

Place the ipad on the keyboard in portrait and landscape modes. The ZAGGmate runs on a rechargeable battery that lasts for months. It weighs 12.8 ounces. How cool is this case!  Costs: $100 (new).

Update: When I wrote the blog the ZAGGmate iPad Case was new and innovative, and now competitives have developed simiar key board covers too. Choice benefits the consumer!

  1. Necessity is the mother of invention! I don't have an iPad either, but if I had one, I would definitely want this case.

  2. I'm thinking when my laptop dies, I might be able to replace it with just an iPad since this case is also a keyboard. Time will tell. I want the camera too that you get on a laptop, and think the next generation of ipads will have them.

  3. This is a great article. I do a lot of writing, and I have a small HP laptop that I use on trains and planes. The full-size (or nearly) keyboard is one of the reasons I chose to get the laptop computer. But if a keyboard solution can be married to an I-PAD, one of my major objections goes away.
