    Sent from Wales, using my iPad & iPF.
    "Whilst?" "Mains?" I didn't even have to look from where you hailed.

    As for the OP's question, a good precaution would be to fashion an aluminum foil hat.

    My iPad is about 5 months old, on average (given my situation with all the extensive use) how long do you think the battery will last till I reach that 80% mark?? 1 years 2 years...

    That's just the thing i plan to keep mine as long as possible though, even if it does get old. That would actually bring me to my next point, so we paid like 6 to 7 hundred dollar for a device that is only going to last a few years? That kind of sucks. If I paid so much I would want the device to last much longer right? I'm starting to think I should have just gotten a Mac book pro or another kind of apple lap top instead of the iPad because it probably would lasted much longer and I could do much much more on it. And I do understand it's the whole experience kind of deal with the iPad but come on, i'm staring to realize that it's just an oversize iPod touch or an iPhone. I think most people would agree with me on that. The battery only lasts a few years what kind of rubbish is that?

    I felt the same way, it pretty much is an oversized ipod touch,but thr battery should last many years, I really dont think you will have to worry about replacing the battery before 4-5 years, if not 5-6. And even then, they will replace the battery for $100 so it is not too bad, but I can see where you are coming from.

    Nothing wrong with your English. Maybe you are being gently teased because it's not American English.
