Charlotte too hot for Apple iPad to work

Weather in Charlotte over the weekend was too hot for the Apple iPad. Charlotte users of the new device found that sitting by the pool is not something that can be enjoyed with the Apple device.

Disappointed users took advantage of a "perfect day" to relax and enjoy surfing the web on the 3G network, only to learn that a few minutes into the heat of the day resulted in an error message indicating the iPad will not function because of heat until it cools down. Hmmmm. Seems that Apple left that little shortcoming out of the marketing material. Especially considering that it was only 86 degrees in Charlotte over the weekend. What happens when it's 100 degrees, does it turn into apple cobbler?

"What a let-down" said Charlotte technical professional and iPad user Dan Williams. "I went to the pool where we even have Wi-Fi, and it only lasted about 10 minutes. Kind of takes the wind out of the sails of the iPad for me, since I spend a lot of time outside." Williams was greeted with a message on a black screen that said "iPad needs to cool down before you can use it."

Apple says the iPad should work in temperatures from 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.  It seems their specs aren't exactly right since many have experienced the problem without coming close to the 95 degree ceiling.

This is the second complaint about the newly introduced gadget. The first was that it has Wi-Fi connection issues, which still remain to be addressed and fixed by Apple.

    Great information! I was thinking about buying the Ipad, but that is something to think about. And that Brent guy is one good-looking son-of-a-gun!
