    I was using my iPad today, and it kept shutting down and it would boot up again and I would have to stare at the apple logo for like 3 min!
    But when it would resume all my safari windows where still there?
    Also I would type some tin and it would lock up and then I would exit safari and return only for it to lock up again!:mad:
    I'm afraid some tin is wrong, but I thought of what new thing I did to it, I used a USB extender I got at dollar store for a buck, and this maybe the reason for this strange behavior, I just unplugged it few min ago, so far so good, nothing freaky..

    Has anybody used a USB extender and got strange behavior ? :confused:

    I don't recommend extenders for ipads reduces voltage which can cause problems.

    This was proven on another forum

    Lol, well I didn't by the USB extender for iPad, I had it laying around and need more cord, so I just tested it to see if it worked..

    But yeah, figures it would freak out wit a dollar extension, haha.

    Anyway, Im gonna buy 1 on eBay made for iPad.

    Anyway, I disconnected and iPad is back to normal now.:)

    USB cables at the dollar store are worthless.

    Our Apple store in Toronto sells a ten foot iPad USB cord made by Griffen. It works well.
