The new iPad has been available for a few days already. Consumers started receiving their lovely new iPad on March 16th.
Apparently, there is an overheating issue with the iPad, according to consumers. A staggering 33% of 850 respondents, agreed that the new iPad is indeed having overheating issues.
Apple must had received dozens of overheating complaints from consumers, so they responded today, “The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare,”
On top of that, the new iPad has a few Smart Cover Problems. The magnet polarities inside the new iPad is not different from iPad 2, and it will not automatically sleep/on.
It’s not surprising that consumers are having concerns with Apple, similar to what happened to the iPhone4 “antennagate”.
Or are people simply having too high expectations for Apple? People just have to understand that there’s no perfect product out there.
Other then it’s overheating and smart cover issues, Apple still managed to pull some crazy numbers for the new iPad.
Apple reported, The new iPad is the strongest launch yet. They sold an astonishing 3 MILLION iPads within 3 days. The cheapest iPad would be 16gb+wifi, is $519 excluding tax. Try calculating 3 MILLION X 519. Apple certainly got their cash.
We will update this if we hear any more news regarding overheating issues from Apple.
Remember a year ago, an explosion occurred at a Chinese factory, mainly for polishing iPads? The explosion injured more than 50 workers, and killed 4. Even though it happened a year ago, it had left permanent damage for a few. The picture below shows the 4 injured worker’s ruined faces.
In an interview by NPR, it turns out that, a lot of them aren’t recovered.
On the other hand, I wonder if they are been compensated with a reasonable amount of money or not. Then again, money for a ruined faces?

What kind of world are we living in now? This is really mind-blowing, fascinating.
Apes at the Toronto Zoo will soon be playing around with iPads. There are already apps made for Apes, for them to create art, music, and even go on Skype with other Apes in others zoos across North America.
A major plan for zoos is to have wifi enabled, so they could Skype. These type of plans/programs isn’t the first. It was started last year at Milawukee zoo.
There is a video below, and you would be able to notice that, these apes uses iPad in a very very similar way to how we would use it.
“We have three orangutans, an adult male, an adult female and a youngster,” said Rafert, zookeeper. “The male lives separately from the other two, but the mother and child enjoy watching video of the male. They recognize him and they recognize themselves.”
Apple is currently not participating in such programs, and the iPads are from donations.
I am really looking forward to see comments about this post, so please feel free to leave any comments!
If you find this fascinating, please spread this around, thanks!
