    Get New Ipad for the B-Day, that why it with engraving, came directly from China. Use since May 10, solid grief at the expense of the screen.
    Already relaxed at the expense of the new tabs in Safari, but worried about other problems.


    1. A small area, line along bottom of the screen seven millimeters in height does not respond to touch.

    2.Sometimes after a sleep, it goes crazy, opening programs, leafing through the screens, also after sleep I can not unlock it.

    Firs day was perfect,and now this....

    Sounds like major hardware faults. Believe me, they don't all do that. Sounds like a trip back to Apple for a replacement.

    Wow! It's seriously defected or possessed. Take it back for an exchange ASAP. The other option is to take it to an exorcist...

    But seriously, an iPad, new or old should not behave that way. I'd say take it back immediately.

    Let me begin by saying return it immediately, it has a bad touchscreen at a minimum.

    Now please indulge me.....

    I realize you are unhappy, and rightfully so because your iPad is defective and I truly understand your disappointment and frustration. Apple will replace it without argument I'm sure.

    I think if one didn't know that ipad to be defective and watched your video they would be scared out of their minds! That iPad has a mind of its own and the sound effects only make it that much more creepy! I was waiting for it to type a complete sentence in the search bar!

    If mine did that I'd likely be beating it with a sledgehammer just because it creeped me out so bad!

    Forget the Apple store, I would be heading to a church to have an exorcism performed on that thing.

    Perhaps as a final attempt before returning you could reset it and see if it works fine....

    I'd be afraid doing so would teleport me to an alternate universe where MePad tablets are manufactured by a company called Plum whose major competitor is a Douse wannabe tablet running humanoid 4.0.4 operating system.

    I recommend a lead box and a trip to the apple store.....immediately!
