So it just comes down to display resolution? Really? My Transformer Prime has an awesome screen resolution, lighter, thinner, faster, Live Wallpapers, Widgets, Flash, Free Amazon daily paid app, it doesn't get as hot, the battery charges while in use. How much is Apple paying CS? Or they're hiring fanboys to write articles. No other explanation.

My wife's new IPad exploded the other day. Shards of glass and steel are still lodged in her brain...

apple users are so "hip and cool" that they had to implement all this heat as "feature" to counter-balance the potential frostbite and hypothermia

And that one double posted.

Darn my comment went away. I wish you guys would get the advertising out of the way of comment posting. Now you'll never know what I have to say. I am sure that you are distressed. But really ....... Why put us through this if you really want us to participate? Soon it won't be worth trying because losing posts is becoming all to common.

I've learned to copy my post before committing on this site, so when the ad nukes my post I can just paste it again.

Pathetic.

And what is the point of the subject when it doesn't show up anyway?

Seconded. One of my comments (a long-winded, technical explanation) got eaten a week or two ago the same way, and I just closed the browser window, pissed off.

I was using my new iPad as a GPS unit this weekend and noticed it did get pretty warm after a while.

" For as popular as Apple products are, the Cupertino outfit can't seem to launch a product without some sort of scandal attached. "

And I am sure they love the attention. It is likely that someone within the vinegar mill is responsible for cranking up each rumor iteration to get the ball rolling.

I've used one for extended gaming with infinity blade 2. While it gets warm, it is a far ways away from any of my laptops which get a heck of a lot warmer and do get uncomfortable to place on your lap with even just flash running.

the newest round of anti-apple videos/commercials. i'd bet that these aren't too far off from the actual way things took place

I use my new iPad a lot and I notice that it definitely heats up back there but it is completely a non-issue. It is warm to the touch but certainly not even remotely hot. I do not do any long graphic intensive gaming sessions on it, however. Come on, I do that then I will be using a PC or dedicated gaming console with real controls.
