SALN iPad Case is Timely This Impeachment Season
We know that politics and technology are two different beats. However, at this point in which Chief Justice Renato Corona’s conviction in the recently-concluded impeachment trial is news of the day, we can’t help but find tech-related things that try to hitch a ride on the country’s current affairs.
Somewhere in the Internet, we spotted an iPad case which we thought timely this impeachment season – the SALN iPad cover. Based on the original design of Speck’s Fitted hard-shell iPad case, the SALN iPad cover is made of white fabric, measures 249 x 196 x 18mm, and weighs 272g.
But the key feature of the SALN iPad cover is its message on the back that says: ‘Ang SAL-N sa Pinas Sa Akin Lahat ng Nakaw’ (in the Philippines, SAL-N means the loot is mine).
Noticeably, the SALN iPad cover does not have a hole for a rear camera, suggesting that it is intended for the first generation iPad. The SALN iPad cover sells for the price of US$ 56.20 or PhP 2,432 based on the local currency.
In actuality, the SALN in the Philippine law stands for Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth, a document that enables the public to scrutinize the wealth of a government official. In the country’s first full-blown impeachment trial, Corona was found guilty due to his failure to fully disclose his wealth through the SALN.
