    I think so, but, you know, there are a lot of ads like Apple's.

    It is nonsense, and anyone who expects any electronic device to handle direct sunlight is dillusional. Common sense is getting to be a rare commodity. Any electrical component has a limited tolerance for heat. To combat the inherent heat issue, numerous methods are deployed. The more you do, the higher battery drain needed, and the more bulk to deal with. Laptops never made reasonable alternatives until they were able to design heat sinks that replaced fan systems.

    I think it's ridiculous and I'm ashamed our country is known for suing at the drop of a hat.

    I couldn't agree more. Try taking an expensive camera or video recording device out in the sun and see what happens to it. We've lost all common sense, I'm afraid.

    Wrong, my overheating one time due to me using it at lunch in my car in 90 degree weather (in a case).

    Now if they are contantly overheating it may be a hardware issue and in that case if they can show Apple support that it indeed happens they should be intitled to a full refund plus any interest they may have incurred on their credit cards.

    Has anyone noticed that almost all of these class action lawsuits start in California? To me it's just filing lawsuits and seeing what sticks. Payday for the lawyers but everyone gets 35 cents in damages.

    I want compensation. Apple said the iPad would be a revolution, but I havent seen a revolution yet. No overthrow of the government is underway. We've been had!!!

    I'm not looking for an argument, but Kindle is an electronic device and it does quite well in direct sunlight. I'm just saying ...
