    Ipad shuts down in heat lawsuit.

    The stupidest lawsuit by far!!!

    Can't they find anything else??? Since day one, those who have negative things to say about the iPad continue to find more. The most recent is how in the blazing heat the iPad shuts down. SO WHAT!!! IT'S HOT. We burn up to a crisp in 90 degree weather too and shut down physically, shoudn't the iPad?. Plus, we all know in direct sunlight the screen is hard to see anyway, so why would you be using it outside. As hot as it has been (in ATL) you need to be in the house anyway!!! The iPad is not the only things that doesnt work well outside in sunlight...shoot, you can be reading a book outside and depending on where your sitting, the sun reflects off the pages and make reading hard to do. Granted your book doesn't close on it own, but sooner or later you'll be closing it anyway.

    Can't you tell I dont like people who don't like the iPad?....lol

    I don't understand why someone would want to use it in that weather. When it is that hot, I try to spend as little time outside as possible - and I definitely don't pull my iPad out to watch a darn movie! If I'm outside in that heat, I'm doing something where using my iPad would just get in the way.

    I agree - everything is about the money. People are greedy and will stop at nothing.

    The first weekend that I had my iPad (early May), I was using it outside in direct sunlight. It was difficult to read the screen, but I was using it anyway. After a couple of hours it started shutting down. I eventually started to put a damp rag next to the back to cool it down so I could still use it.

    That was the only time I had the problem though.

    I used mine for a few hours on the beach in Rimini Italy and didn't have any issues with over heating. People will always find something to complain about though, it's just human nature.

    I dont think this has anything to do with people who dont like the iPad. Those people never bought one. I dont really care if someone doesnt like the iPad - its not for everyone. As long as they leave me alone, I dont care.

    I have the overheating problem. I AM NOT PART OF THIS LAWSUIT! It occurred the first time in 70 degree weather after 5 minutes of use. I was told that this happened because I was in sunlight. I explained to them that I had purchased the Ipad to replace a kindle and their ads stated, at the time “take it everywhere”. I told them there should be better information on their website and I was informed that their operating specs clearly stated that its operating range was to 95 degrees. I stated I was in 70 degree weather and was told that those spec were the internal specs though that was not stated. I had also read in the forums that others had had the same problem and had their units replaced several times until they received a unit that worked in the sun. Apple denied any knowledge of this. I was informed I was using my unit incorrectly and there was nothing they would do for me. Gentlemen when one operates their company in this manor stonewalling perhaps thousands of customers who clearly have defective units they usually ends up in court the only avenue left available.
