    ....fingerprints!

    I've had my new iPad just over a month. I like the device a lot, but I find fingerpint marks frustrating.

    I clean the iPad every few days with a cloth, but still the fingerprints return.

    Do fingerprints bother you or do you just ignore them?

    How often you do clean your iPad?

    I have a solution, try using it with your feet, then you won't leave finger prints :)
    Seriously though, come on guys what do you expect, it's a tablet computer, if you wanted no finger prints on the screen shouldn't you have gone for a laptop?
    My Samsung GS2 also leaves fingerprints aswell as my ipad but you have to expect it as its a 'touch screen'
    Only way to eradicate this is to use a stylus.

    Is there some screen protecters out there that don't leave finger prints?I know some matte finish protectors claim this,but I wonder if they degrade the view quality?

    Human skin secretes oil.

    Of course if you're dealing with a xenomorph ....

    Dietrich: Looks like some sort of secreted resin.
    Hicks: Yeah, but secreted from *what*?

    Yes, it's bothersome...but just wiping it clean often solves that small issue of irritation for me.

    You only see them when the screen is off. So what does it matter? I think you have an obsessive compulsive problem.

    It would be nice if the oleophobic coating lasted more than a couple of weeks. Sigh...

    My biggest irritation is the lack of a handle. A victory of style over function. I'm embarrassed to carry my iPad in public, clutching it to my body in constant fear of dropping it. My wife says it looks like Gollum cradling his Precioussss. (Thus, that's her name for the iPad.)
