    Apple has today released iOS 3.2.1 for the iPad, which fixes some bugs and adds some improvements. Probably the number one fix on the list is the improved Wi-Fi connectivity, which appears to have solved a problem that many iPad owners have had with weak Wi-Fi signals. Going by the latest postings on Apple’s iPad support board, the update seems to have solved those problems for many people, although one person said that installing the update had totally bricked his iPad, which is a bit worrying, as is the fact that ZDNet writer Adrian Kingsley-Hughes also said that installing iOS 3.2.1 “hosed†his iPad. Should your iPad remain intact after the update, you’ll also find that Bing has been added as a new search option in Safari. Other fixes include repairing an issue that could possibly prevent copy and paste of single-page PDF attachments in Mail, and addressing another bug that could cause video playback to freeze.

    The only 'bricked' or 'hosed' ipads were jailbreak examples.

    No WIFI .... STILL

    I've had my iPad since last last Thursday, and have been able to get online with WIFI for a total of 2 minutes since then! I waited what I thought was a reasonable amount of time after launch for Apple to get their act together - guess not long enough.

    Completed the 3.2.1 software update this evening, and still NO WIFI! My home wireless network has a total of 1 desktop XP PC and 2 XP laptops currently working with no issues - starting to think this long-avoided excursion into the Apple end of the pool was ill advised.

    You should go see the Apple specialists where you got it. It really is defective...

    A really crappy search engine was added, for one. And video supposedly runs better.

    Through iTunes. Plug it in and you will get an update prompt when iTunes opens. Takes awhile.

    Sincerely doubt that the Apple update as delivered through iTunes bricked any unmodified iPad.
