Issues with iPad 3's overheating are getting a fair amount of coverage

We Heard The New iPad Has Thermal
Issues, But Ours Seems Just
And under the headline "Apple
to charge iPad owners for central heating
", the UK's Daily Mash
"reported" the words of Apple chief Tim Cook:
|"Because automatic downloads are
secretly impossible to prevent, we can
effectively control the temperature of your home. This gives you the
exciting choice of giving us more money or living in a pizza oven."
They reckon that:
|Apple will shortly release a
heat resistant mat for iPad users that
want to play Scrabble over the internet for more than 30 minutes
without having to wear ceramic trousers. Called the 'iSbestos', it will
come in a range of sleek, funky designs and retail at £1200.
But all is not lost of Apple avoiders:
|Meanwhile, Samsung's rival
Galaxy Tab will come with a free set of
curling tongs so that people who cannot afford an iPad can still burn
themselves really badly.
