In praise of shtenders

January 25, 2012


I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.  iPads are bad for your health.  There is a study from the Microsoft (and Harvard) that says so (and Microsoft would never say anything unfair about Apple, right?)

But I was amused that the solution is to find “a good case that allows you to prop up your tablet at the most comfortable angle.”  That’s been known at least since the 18th century – at least if you’ve ever heard anyone talking in Yiddish.  Why doesn’t everyone use a shtender (שטענדער)?
