Fusion Garage Grid 10 drops TabCo disguise: 10-inch custom slate

TabCo has come clean, and as expected the "brand behind the brand" is Fusion Garage.

You'll find all your favorites here illustrated to witness the holy birth of the iPad. God, forgive them for their sin (if you would consider such a thing a sin,) as this is totally a bunch of fun and in no way takes away from the fun of your son's birthday party.
