    Maybe a weird question but is anyone else getting RSI to their wrist and pins and needles in their fingers of the hand you hold the iPad with? I've noticed today - or am I being paranoid? Typical man eh?!

    How long have you had your iPad? RSI usually takes some time to develop.

    I've had the damn thing for a little over a week and granted it's gotten lots and lots and loooots of use, and I do find holding it quite uncomfortable, I think the worst thing I've gotten was sweaty palm syndrome. Cause you point... the whole damn time. And the rest of the fingers are bunched up against your palm that I find I have to open my hand every once in a while just to air it out. Waving it about works.

    Downloading this app could really cause some serious repetitive strain injuries! :D

    My cheeks get sore from smiling all the time.

    Seriously tho, I had a bout of repetitive strain. You just have to find different positions to use it. Couch leaning, sitting, bed, kitchen table. The trick is to vary your joint positions. I've never had a problem with iPad use because I never stay long enough in one position.
