    This plea for user adjustable settings reminds me of buying hi-fi

    The really expensive top end gear had minimal controls while the cheap junk amplifiers looked like a Boeing flightdeck.

    The real trouble is that the iPad is so competent we expect more than it was designed to give.

    no calibration settings, there is no need for them on this type of screen. Its not a pressure sensitive screen.

    That's what I thought too. Has nothing to do with apple bias - other than the iPad and touch, I've only ever had one apple product (an iBook about 6 years ago), the rest have been pc's. I enjoy games too much to go full on Mac. Plies I couldn't afford it lol

    I also think they should have a setting where you flick your finger to scroll, you can adjust faster scrolling, or slower scrolling..

    I bet the next gen iPad will have such settings.

    That setting is there already sort of. Instead of a setting, it scrolls as fast or slow as you want based on how fast or slow you swype your finger. You can scroll very fast or very slow. Play with it in slow motion, when you touch the screen its like your finger is physically touching the page. As you slide, it will move as though your finger is physically moving the page. It works just like inertial scrolling in Windows Mobile - which also has no sensitivity setting.

    I don't either... I think newcomers to Apple products aren't acostumed to the 'touch' which Apple is all about. Now, if everyone was complaining about touch sensitivity with Microsoft products, i.e. HP's attempt to copy Apples touch pad, then I totaly would understand.

    Touch screen setting

    Where do you get this perfect stuff!! Are you an Apple employee?
    All you have to do is accidentally and lightly brush the screen with your palm and you find yourself on another page!

    I am trying to type on this screen and the slightest whiff of air or skin touch types a letter I don't want. So, yes, there is a reason to adjust the sensitivity. I am a touch typist and this keyboard is a mess to learn.

    Not if you use it properly. You can't expect to rest your hand on it and it not do anything!

    I am also a touch typist. Took me a few days to learn, no more.

    Some of you people too funny. Most people don't even know how to adjust the setting on their TVs. They don't even know what the settings mean. What does brightness mean? What does contrast mean? If you put more than brightness in there, then you'l have people with their settings all screwed up and that will create a support nightmare. Then, the cost of support will go up...then support will disppear...then apple will be just like the rest of them.

    Other than brightness, I have not feel the need to adjust the touchscreen. On any of time tablets (android or apple), to be honest. Just because a thing can be adjusted doesn't mean it needs to be adjusted. If you had a problem with the app that spoiled your screen, can the app rather rather than faulting apple for not giving you yet another fiddly adjustment to screw up.
