    Since you have no idea how many DLs and DYs have been made there is no way to draw any conclusion.

     

    All the talk about DL, DY, etc. is statistically meaningless. Pure speculation.

    Agree, just speculation.

    Kim?  I see nothing wrong with being a new member, with one post.  This thread just happened to come up, when I was searching for iPads overheating, so I wanted to comment, that I had the same problem.

     

    I'm not sure I understand your comment ???

    This thread has been plagued with trolls/sock puppets. Your claim that the iPad was "too uncomfortable to hold" at 50 - 70% would put you into a really tiny minority. It's an Occam's Razor thing- but there's plenty of time to find out otherwise, too...

    Apple forums have always been the target of people who want to spread FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) about Apple and its products. Called "drive-by posts" these people find topics that are controversial and add fake comments designed to support the negative aspects. These posters claim to have the symptoms being discussed when in fact they don't even own any Apple products. The two biggest topics that attract these types right now are the Flash player threads and the iPad overheating threads. Every major tech site and hardware lab have examined the issue and found it to be untrue. The so-called overheating issue is long gone from discussion forums at various tech web sites.

     

    So, when a new user's first post is in one of these threads they are immediately under suspicion as being part of a coordinated effort to smear Apple. If that first post is the only one the new member ever makes, or if that new member continues to make post after post about the same thing, repeating known talking points, it just confirms the suspicions.

    I've used the new iPad since it came out. The only time it gets warm is when I have it closed up in a full body jacket and have forgotten to turn it off. When charging tho, the plug gets pretty warm. I use it for hours at a time.

    I have developed an odd issue, I think.

    I have been running my ipad3 on 50% brightness with auto brightness turned on since purchasing it on release date. It has been great and no heat issues. However last night I noticed the screen seemed really dim (no change to settings). I have to turn auto brightness off to enjoy the correct brightness at 50%. As soon as I turn auto brightness back on the screen dims to a point that it isn't bright enough.

    Anyone else getting this and if so what is the fix please?

    I agree with you that auto brightness does not work as well as one would hope.  I have mine set at 50% brightness and auto brightness set to off all the time.  I just adjust the brightness manually whenever I need to because the auto brightness doesn’t work well for how I use the ipad.

     

    Also for those claiming that 50% brightness is too dark, you need to make sure you have auto brightness off, and then 50% or just a little higher should be bright enough for indoors.  By setting the brightness lower you measurably decrease the warmth, increase the battery life, and it will charge when being used.

    Do a backup to your pc, not iCloud. Then do a full restore. But don't restore the backup yet. Just set the iPad up as anew device. Then try the brightness and serif it continues. If not, than restore your backup and try again. If it continues, I would return it for an exchange.

    I do understand that ... but that's not what I was doing.  I was trying to contribute to a thread that was discussing the same problem I had.

     

    I had the iPad 3 and it DID indeed overheat to the point of being uncomfortable to hold onto, and even sitting on my lap or knees on the couch, it was very uncomfortable.

     

    When I returned it to Verizon, they had gotten many returned for the same reason.  I LOVED the iPad, there's absolutely no reason for me to smear Apple, I love their products, I was very dissappointed that I had to return it.

     

    I'm saving up again, to buy the iPad 2.

     

    I just bought the iPhone 4S and love it, getting use to the speed of the web being a bit slower than I'm use to.

     

    Also, when I was in the Verizon store, the iPad 2 was completely cool, and iPad 3 was HOT, both having been off and on all day.  There must be something to it, just not sure what.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain the issue in more detail.

     

    I just scanned through a few pages of this thread, and it's clear that there are many trolls/sockpuppets here. So many posts make strikingly similar points with similar language. When you check the user, you see that they joined right before posting, and disappeared again. I'd guess that one or two people here are responsible for 8-10 different sockpuppets posting variations on a theme.

     

    I think "DianaElaine" is almost certainly a troll. For example-

    This isn't dispositive, but her points sounds very familiar overall, and she fits the pattern here perfectly. I wish I could see the IP logs for this thread...

    For some reasons I keep getting stupid email alerts from this thread.. Super annoying. Already unsubscribed but the email alerts just keep pouring in... By the way, I think you guys are just too picky... It's just warm after all. No big deal...

    You can turn off email alerts by going into Your Stuff at the top of the page and changing settings.  It's either in notifications or preferences........

    Oh so you want to use me as an example again.

    Kim you are clearly a troll or someone with a sinister ulterior motive. You have no purpose here other than trying to illicit angry responses and it is working...you offer nothing constructive whatsoever and you lie poorly. If you are being paid, you should be ashamed. If you are not, you should get a life.

    No one believes you, especially if they are holding a warm and toasty iPad while reading your obnoxious posts.

    Most that are here reading are likely holding an unusually warm iPad in their hands. Why else would they even be here.

    Don't you get it, you look foolish!

     

     

    It makes you look sinister to call people trolls when that is exactly what you are!

    Remember the name KIM everyone!

     

    troll:

    One who posts a deliberately message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.

    You said your iPad was "way too hot to be comfortable"? And "…that kind of heat on your lap or up against your body cannot be good for you"? Plus — "…have to worry about my kids laps"?

     

    "Way too hot," just from running Safari for "ten minutes"? Sorry — not buying it.
