    Yep, mine is locking up with iTunes tv shows. Restarting the video resolves it but it happens ever 3 minutes or so. I have a bunch of downloads going so it could be that.

    I've had to restart mine about 4 times. Once watching abc app, another time watching a video on CNN. Another on the MMOD app. Each time I had to force power off and restart.

    Mine locked up whilst working with e-mail.

    Also, Wouldn't send mail. POP and smtp were correctly entered. Called tech support. Deleted account info and reentered. Now sending mail with no problems.

    I guess they should have used Flash after all.

    Video Lock-Up

    I've only tried to watch one Netflix video; locked up about 30 min. into it. I'll try another one, see what happens. Only had the iPad for a few days, so I'd imagine I can return it. But from the forums and posts, this seems to be a fairly common problem...

    No problems here, I watch iTunes content, AirVideo, content I manually loaded, converted videos, YouTube, etc, etc. Not a single lockup.

    Watched my first Netflix stream last night, on a 3G connection. Frequently the stream just stopped. I could resume it by tapping pause, then play but the feed would stop again in minutes. I was down to 20% battery power...not sure if that would make a difference. I will try again today with unit fully charged, but if I have the same results as last night I'll dump Netflix.

    No other problems found so far, except that the ABC app, which I can't use on 3G anyway, won't rotate into landscape mode.

    Might have a bad unit...I have never had it lock up and I am what would be considered a heavy user.

    Update your abc app. There's a new version out that streams on 3G and plays in landscape. The only lock up I've had so far was working with forwarding an email from the full hotmail site. Safari kept freezing and I had to hit home and go back in. Tried it with the hotmail mobile version and had no issues though.
