    This has so many design flaws. And that's one big price bump for adding the steel cable.

    There should be a hard plastic cover over the screen as well that needs an unlock to be like folded back. I bet it would be difficult to break an entire hard plastic shell without damaging the ipad.

    Why yank the cable? Just open the plastic case and take the iPad out.

    I'll pay to insure your iPad and the deductible if you let me steal it

    have to agree, one good yank will break the case... FAIL

    This is basically to keep a honest man honest..

    Maybe so a teacher can lock it up while teaching class.

    For sure, but personally I never let go of mine when I'm around a crowd
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    No matter how hard we try to protect our iPads, a thief always comes up with a better plan of taking it away.
