I own a tablet, totally by accident. But even when I have the money I have had no interest in getting an IPAD. First off , as much as I love APPLE. They are abusive to their consumers. A new phone every year.. a new 500.00 Ipad every year too! Who has that type of money to waste. Plus if its stolen or broken, then your really screwed. I have the same xbox 360 from 2006 it cost about 400,00. But it was well worth it. It seems Ipads are really not worth all the waste. Because before you even get to celebrate your anniversary theirs a newer better one. Or is there?
According to Consumer Reports, it gets as warm as 116 degrees Farenheit, warmer than human skin, especially when playing graphics-intensive games.
“When unplugged, the back of the new iPad reached temperatures as high as 113 degrees Fahrenheit. It was only when plugged in that it hit 116 degrees. The hottest areas weren’t evenly distributed throughout the iPad’s back, but were concentrated near one corner of the display,”says Consumer Reports’ Donna Tapellini.
The new version is a good twelve degrees Farenheit hotter than the iPad 2, says Consumer Reports. It’s stopped short of saying that the high temperature is actually dangerous, but said users should be careful.
However, according to Apple, it’s all part of the plan – the company says the device is running within thermal specifications. It does, though, recommend that it shouldn’t be used in temperatures of 95 degrees or above. What happens then? It friggin Melts??!!
However, use by children might end up being a moot point, if too many people are using their iPads on their lap. In studies, even cooler-running laptops have been associated with ‘scrotal hyperthermia’, potentially reducing male fertility.
Ergonomists have already been urging tablet users not to use their devices on their laps. Or just stop being on your phones & tablets all day. Go outside & get some fresh air. Of course after you’ve been to Chasemebaby.com! ha ha
