Beach-proofing your tablet
With the weather finally warming up and summer rapidly approaching, it's time to start thinking about stowing those heavy winter jackets and pulling out the beach gear. Of course, lying out and catching some sun on the beach often goes hand in hand with reading a good book
These days, reading a book doesn't necessarily mean flipping through paper pages. More frequently people are gravitating toward electronic alternatives, including e-readers and tablet computers. While these are certainly convenient, beach-goers must be careful to ensure their devices don't get damaged.
Sand and water pose obvious dangers to any electronic gadget on the beach. Fortunately, tablet users have several water-proof cases available that can also help keep sand out of the nooks and crannies of their devices.
Glare is another issue when reading an e-book on the beach. Glass screens are notorious for being unreadable in the sun. A big umbrella is always a good option for reducing glare. Tablet users looking to bask in the sun, however, might consider an anti-glare screen protector, which can also guard the display from sand and scratches.
Tablet owners are advised to keep a close eye on their devices while at the beach. To ensure a tablet doesn't get lost or stolen, one should either keep the device nearby at all times or have someone keep watch when taking a dip.
