    It comes on when you least expect it. It's worst than tennis elbow or swimmers ear. It's iPad Had (ominous music)!!!!

    Ok that was corny, but seriously...Does anyone else get sore fingertips from too much iPad/iPhone time without a break? It's the worst.

    Nope. I just hate that fuzzy feeling it has while it charges.

    If anything its my left elbow that gets sore after a while. Thats from supporting the iPad when sitting on the couch or whatever and then my right hand is doing the tapping/typing. Its worth it though.... :D

    How much time do you guys actually spend on your Ipad ? i seriously still spend more time behind a work computer still although i do carry my ipad around.

    I noticed weigh gain recently though from excessive use but no Ipad Hand yet. Care to describe your Ipad Hand jas ?

    My fingertips tend to get sore from pounding on the screen of my iPad and iPhone. Admittedly I'm a heavy handed person. I figured other folks had iDevice injuries too.

    I wonder if they'll replace the old football injury our Dad's bragged about. I wonder if we'll say "See that scar right there that's from surgery. Carpal tunnel... They told me to stay off the iPad six weeks. Think I did? No! I went right back to it. Why? Because I was dedicated. Couldn't let me forum friends down. They needed me."

    I get iPad butt. It comes from sitting in the chair too long without moving and using the iPad. Oh I forgot to mention, there are two Pug dogs on my lap, which makes finding the right position a challenge...
