Let's face it, we iPeople are in love with our cases. No matter how beautiful Jony Ive makes our Apple devices, we rush to wrap it up in a case, never to see the actual device again. In my own household, it happened with the, more rare than gold, gold iPhone. What chance does the iPad Air have at going case-free? Absolutely none!

I'm not going to lie. I am more excited about the release of the iPad Air than I thought I would be. I always go through a particular kind of madness during iPhone and iPad season. This time, however, there is less to be excited about. Isn't there? Despite the changes to the formfactor and internals, this iPad will allow me to do exactly the same stuff as the last one. So why is it that I find myself to be as giddy as a schoolboy anticipating his first kiss?
