    Do you feel that your iPad is getting heavier from the time you first got it? Is there a technical reason for that? More apps, perhaps? E=MC^2, somehow apps changes E, entropy over time, thereby increases M?:p

    I assume you mean "became more sluggish"
    Which might be true. I don't know how the fragmentation goes on the iPad, but I assume that something does happen with the files, that start being scattered all around the place.
    So it may take longer to locate them.
    But maybe not.
    One thing is sure. The files you have the more sluggish it will be

    If you mean physically heavier then no. Einstein's equations would mean the physical amount of energy added would have to be enormous before their would be any measurable difference in mass.

    I believe the phenomenon you are looking at is called muscle fatique. ;)

    Yeah, I remember when I first installed Infinity Blade, my iPad got so heavy I couldn't pick it up. I had to have my wife help me to move the iPad to my lap so I could play the game. I deleted it right after I played it.

    Mine felt surprisingly heavy right out of the box. I then realized that hand holding it would not be possible for me.

    Maybe you macho guys can do it but for me a few minutes holding it in one hand is fatiguing.

    If iPod which is much smaller than ipad can get heavier, the effects could be exponential for ipad with apps, files, music, video and photos:confused:

    In the relativistic sense, yes, frame-dragging makes my iPad heavier, so I trot upstairs, where it's ever-so-slightly lighter. As a bonus, I age a tad more slowly up there too … but then my wife calls up & reminds me I said I'd clean the attic last fall. Maybe there's an app for making her forget again.

    We are talking about TENTHS OF A GRAM, there is no way you can reliably feel the difference of less than one gram holding something in your hand.
