It looks like OtterBox is expanding their business to not only include cases for different mobile devices, but also to make screen protectors and protective wraps for gadgets. The company acquired screen protector maker Wrapsol for an undisclosed amount of money. Not a lot of details are known at this point yet.
We were here at ShowStoppers 2012 in CES with Wrapsol. Today they unveiled the Wrapsol non-slip grip pad. We've seen products that do essentially the same thing before, but not with their superb 'tactile' technology. Tactilla isn't velcro or adhesive. It creates a wider surface area and tension so that i can even grip clothing.

We've got the brand new iPad 2 Wrapsol packs here in the office and we'd just love for you to see how easy (or difficult!) it is to apply them to the device. Thusly we've taken a video, and yours truly will narrate you through an application of the tough-as-nails wrap for the display of the iPad 2 in all its glory. Spoiler - one drop and placement and it's on, essentially perfect.

Wrapsol has announced that it has redesigned its film to make the install process easier.
So the day has come. You've finally purchased your first iPad, the fancy new iPad 2, and you're wondering what you should get out there and grab with it. You want to know what the essentials are, what everyone else is getting, and most importantly, what the weirdest possible items are that you could be downloading because we suggested it. It's an app downloading party! Plus there's some physical objects you should more than likely feel like you need as well.
This week Black Friday will see the stores packed with hoards of shoppers looking to save a few bucks on some gear. I'd rather get kicked in the balls by a ninja donkey than go into a store on Black Friday personally. I'm more a Cyber Monday kind of shopper and I bet that there are a bunch of you that are the same way.

It looks like the Droid Eris is set to get updated tomorrow, there's a review up, and a regional carrier keeps getting Android. And then in the Dredge 'Net, we hear from Clearwire's CEO about 4G, how Arizona's immigration law is affecting game developers, and Apple's iPhone exclusivity deal gets figured out.
