Simeon over at Two Lives Left became dissatisfied with the uneven wear on his Apple brown leather iPad cover. So he came up with a plan to fix it. In his own words:
"I had a wonderful, horrible idea: I’d stain the cover with coffee…"
"I had no idea whether this would work. But I reasoned at worst I’d end up with an interesting experiment and an utterly ruined Smart Cover. And even if it looked terrible, it would still function as a cover."
I added one of his photos of the finished product here. It does look great. What I want to know is: does it smell good too?
You can read his full blog post here to learn about the trial and error process he went though to get to the final result.

"The most immersive and impressive sci-fi FPS franchise on smartphones is back! Fight for mankind's survival in the greatest space shooter on mobile devices!
Four months have passed since Kal ruined the Volterites' plans by sabotaging their war factories, and stopping the extraction of the Judger Artifacts. However, following the assassination of President Folsom, the government surrendered the colonies to the Volterite Protectorate in order to prevent civil war amongst the increasingly pro-Volterite citizens.
Kal Wardin has been laying low since Folsom’s death, but now he has received a desperate plea from Yelena to come to Earth. Once again, the hero must rise to save mankind!"
