    We love your YouTube video of the Mac Classic for the iPad and replay it over and over for the music, also. What is this piece and who does it? You? Did you compose?

  20. hirac より:

    Thanks, Jo Anne.

  21. James より:

    Firstly, I am compelled to say what an utterly brilliant idea this is. Well done!

    Have you managed to give any thought yet to how one might create the mechanism to operate the Home button when the iPad is encased within the Mac Classic?

    Many thanks for this highly ingenious project.

    Cutting plastic can be difficult.
    How did you cut the slot on the side?
    What tool did you use?

    thanks! Love this!

  32. hirac より:

    Hi, lee.
    Sorry for late reply.
    To cut the side of the case, I used the plastic cutter.
    It is well-suited for cutting thick plastic.
