This aluminum keyboard case from Brydge is at the same price level as Magic Keyboard. Is it better than the original Apple keyboard?
Brydge is one of few Apple-approved brands. It offers premium keyboard cases that will turn your iPad into a laptop. Opposite to Magic Keyboard, the case allows you to position the iPad screen exactly at the right angle (from 0 to 180 degrees), thanks to patented hinge design.
The case is engineered from machined high-grade aluminum to match the design, quality and color of iPad Pro models. Bluetooth 5.0 module and 3-month battery life add to a long list of benefits.
The case comes with edge-to-edge keyboard and oversized trackpad designed specifically for the touch-first experience on the iPad: full pointer support and access to iPad gestures, such as two-finger scroll or right click.
Adjustable backlit keys provide the ultimate typing experience in low to no light conditions. Three levels of backlight will meet all your visibility demands.
If a Magic Keyboard doesn’t make you believe you can use your iPad the way you used your laptop, Brydge should do the trick.
✨ Compatible: iPad Pro 12.9 (2020 and 2018). Available also for iPad Pro 11.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.
