Why Would You Ever Want to Turn Your iPad In A Fridge-Magnet?

Gadgets gone wrong, or must-have thing of this holiday season? I’m pretty confident a zillion of crazy iPad users will buy it, and love it.

Wired talks about a new product, the FridgePad:

“Made of aluminum with a big old magnet on the back to keep it firmly stuck to the fridge, the FridgePad holds the iPad with four plastic corner clips. Once secured to the door of the smallest and coldest room in the house, you can use the iPad to play music, podcasts or audiobooks, show you recipes or, well, anything the iPad can do. The more I think about it, the more it is clear how perfect the iPad is as a kitchen computer. And if you’re really messy when you cook, you could even slip the whole rig, magnet and all, into the ziploc bag and just slap that onto the refrigerator.”

You know what? Give me a great calendar app and I’m gonna stick my baby to the fridge. Maybe. But only if it comes with additional Ballmer stickers.
