Lenore and Windell, that brilliant hacker couple who run Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, have a complete how-to for making a foldable lap stand for the iPad.
Sure, that iPad's fun. But doesn't your arm get tired propping up one and a half pounds after an hour or two?
Yes, one thing that the iPad is definitely missing is angle. A laptop has an adjustable screen, and you can just set it on your lap for couchborne surfing. Just set the iPad on your lap and... well... it's sits there taunting you, pointing at the ceiling.
