Big Surprise, Apple Monograms a Case for This Year’s Gadget… the iPad

I don’t know if it’s because the wound is still too open from Apple’s recent stomping on its once most trusted fan and ally, the little guy, but I have to admit I am not a fan of this case. That almost seems impossible to imagine seeing that this is coming from an avid mac user since 2002. I am on my 4th mac computer, I have gone through 4 iPods, I’m on my second iPhone, and yes I snagged the iPad, which I love. What can I say… I’m an early adopter techno geek. What I don’t love is Louis Vuitton’s continual exploitation of the fleeting technological devices, whose size, function, style, and capabilities change just as often as they possibly can. I get it. I recognize that each year when that new gizmo comes out, the previous one that has completely satisfied me till the very second I became aware of the new one has utterly become obsolete. It becomes a burden to even look at. These guys bank it big time on maximizing our techno needs.

When I think of Louis Vuitton, I think of a brand that produces timeless pieces of designer luxury that transcend these concepts of fads. I think of classic photoshoots of Audrey Hepburn and her speedy. I think of Twiggy and her papillon. Those images could just as easily be used today and no one would suspect it from being old. To give you an idea of what I’m talking about here are just some of the cases that Louis Vuitton has created over the years, whose longevity lasted almost as long as the devices they protected:
