Uh this is probably real stupid of me to post in a thread where everyone has gone completely nuts but uuhhmm there really is a difference in weight and thickness. I'm just a girl and I use to be able to hold the iPad 2 for quite along period of time with just one hand but the new one becomes heavy real quick. Not saying there is anything wrong with that as I'll take the speed, heat, weight, thickness and that bitchin screen any day over the old one. Saying you can't notice it though is kind of reaching a little, there is an obvious difference and it isn't as suttle as you make it out to be.

Right. 1.46 pounds is SOOOOOO much heaver than 1.34 pounds. I doubt if many people can even tell the difference.

Apple has now acknowledged that some iPad owners may be experiencing Wi-Fi issues due to hardware or design problems. The WiFi only version may be affected while the 4G is not according to an Apple Support document. AppleCare staff has been instructed to "capture" (box and return to Apple engineering) any WiFi new iPads that exhibit:

-Intermittent connectivity
-Slow Wi-Fi speeds
-Wi-Fi network not seen

Add me to the list. Two laptops in the same room have no trouble, but the iPad drops the signal after a few seconds.

*Surely* Apple must have field tested the new machines before release, so what is going on?

Life?

Sometimes, despite our wishes or best intentions, unintended crap happens. Take it back to Apple and get it swapped. Their standing behind their product - what more (aside from perfection) do you want them to do?

It could be worse - you could be an Asus owner: http://allthingsd.com/20120406/confi...es-gps-issues/

So that's why Android tablets require USB ports...
