Default Newsflash! iPad Overheats When Exposed to the Sun!

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macworld.com/article/152983/2010/07/ipad_lawsuit.html?lsrc=rss_weblogs_iphonecentral' target='_blank'>http://www.macworld.com/article/152...s_iphonecentral</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple was sued last week over claims that its iPad easily overheats, then suddenly switches itself off."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1264960943.usr105634.jpg" /></p><p>Part of the lawsuit claimed that when exposed to direct sunlight, the iPad heats up. Huh? Its enclosed in metal so why wouldn't it?? But I get it that they are frustrated. They planned on being able to take their iPad to the beach, or sit in the sun and read their books. Now all they get is the "iPad needs to cool down before you can use it" message and it shuts down on them. Perhaps though, they should try using a case to cover up the metal case before going out into direct sunlight? I've used mine out on our deck, in the sunlight, and haven't had this problem, but I've always had a case on it. Not sure if that has been tried by these folks since the lawsuit doesn't address it, but it sure seems like they would before going the route of a lawsuit. Or am I missing something here?</p>

Hell, I overheat and shut down when exposed to the sun, and you don't see ME whining about it!

Geez! Get a life!
