Belkin Qode | Getting You in Security Mode

A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 6

Last updated on April 5th, 2021 at 12:04 am

I can hardly believe it’s been over 4½ years since I scrambled to get my hands on an iPad 2 so I could have it while overseas, knowing that the lightweight tablet paired with an Apple Keyboard would travel far better than the 17″ MacBook Pro I rocked then. I still have it at home—its Magic Cover’s seen better days, frayed and torn from years of wear and tear; the skin of Justin Bua’s Piano Man II still sticking proudly to its back after everything it’s been through. Though I’d later move on to lighter laptops and smaller tablets to get things done, I know full well that my iPad would never have lasted as long as it has it wasn’t protected. Several adventures and devices with matching cases later, it’s a lesson I’ve carried with me, working hard to make the most of my tech in a world where everything’s become so… disposable.

That said, for Day 6 of A Case Cringle Christmas, I want to offer you the same sense of security I feel when I use my devices, and make sure one of my readers winds up with a Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for the iPad Air 2!

Priced at $170, the Qode is definitely one of the most complete options you’ll find for protecting an iPad. It’s a hardshell case with a built-in backlit keyboard connected via Bluetooth. Need to change your iPad orientation while it’s connected? It’s got that. Need it to stand so you can watch a flick or connect a second device to work with? It’s got that, too! With a device as fragile as most things we own in this touchscreen era (and don’t lie—I see all y’all with your cracked screens…), preventing unforeseen issues from ever happening is far preferable to figuring out how can afford a replacement due to your unpreparedness.

A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 6—In Security Mode Thanks to Belkin Qode!—Belkin Holiday Gift Guide 2015

The secret of buying Christmas gifts for people that’re hard to shop for is getting them things they need before they even know they need them. We often buy things as a fix after the damage is already done, but think how much better off we’d be if we made decisions with a little foresight and got everything we needed from the start?

For all that the Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case has to offer, there’s a feature that isn’t listed on the box — security. There’s something to be said for not needing to worry about the things we pour all our hard-earned money into, for after all… it’s not like it grows on trees. I’ve learned from the misplaced iPods, hard drives sans backups and stripped headphones of my youth, and realized if I just safeguard my stuff with a few extra dollars to keep them with me from the outset, my future will always see me tackling new challenges—not retracing my steps again and again to fix the things I did wrong.

Good luck to all who enter, and as we close in on those final shopping hours before Christmas, remember this—’tis the season for giving; not getting into brawls at the mall just because your fellow shopper took the last toy off the shelf and you saw it first!

Until the next,

Errr, probably my right knee :0 But I also look back to a laptop I had that was dropped multiple times. Probably didn’t do it too much good.

My phone, well in fact most people seem to have problems with their phones, I see so many with cracked screens. It can’t always be the kids can it!

If I could go back in time I would say I would have protected my own health a little better as I take pretty good care to protect my tech stuff.

If I could go back in time, I would have spent more time enjoying life with my husband and daughter, while she was young. I was to focused on my job, taking care of the household (cooking, cleaning, banking, shopping, etc.) and don’t feel that we spent enough time as a family.

Won’t let me enter, not in my region it says…I am from Saskatchewan, just overseas atm…visiting my husband.

If I could go back in time I would protect my cellphones better. I always think i’ll be careful enough to not need a case and I am always wrong.

If I could go back in time, I would have protected my Nokia better so hubbies dropping it woudn’t have destroyed it

I would have protected my tablet better. Didn’t know the kids could do so much damage in such a short period of time with supervision.

My cell phojne as took it in to be fixed and they lost it by giving it to someone else and I never got it back and the police said take it to small claims
