    Does anyone else get sore elbows from using their iPad for extended periods?

    Try using your fingers instead. Much easier to use that way ;)

    My wife suggests applying E45 cream to affected areas.

    Yup, stiff elbows.

    You can buy gooseneck stands that hold iPads overhead, in front of you or however you like, though. I've yet to find one I like the look of, but I'm still looking.

    Try playing Real Racing HD for much of the holiday weekend. I may as well have NO arms at this point. :)

    Piece on CNBC today on "iPad elbow." iPads need to be positioned at the right angle. I use the iPad Snakeclamp myself.
