No User Love Lost On iPad Drawbacks
As users have taken the latest Apple iPad out of its trademark white box and begun to fool around with its touted Retina display, high speed processor, hotspot capabilities, and 5-megapixel camera, they have overwhelmingly been impressed — in fact, cnet.com has reported that over 3 million third-generation iPads have been sold since its March 16 launch, and a full 65 million units are predicted to be sold before the end of the year.

The virtues of the device’s enhanced graphics have been espoused Internet-wide, as has the customized full-page formatting feature that reduces the amount of zooming and scanning that has to be done for documents, books, and magazines.  But the same components touted as upgrades from the iPad 2 have been shown to have minor downsides. 

Personal tech blogger Edward C. Baig writes on USAToday that the iPad’s allotted data can be used up more quickly than you realize.  
"Less than 24 hours after purchasing the Verizon Wireless version of the iPad + 4G — and choosing a $30, 2GB monthly data plan from Verizon — I was shocked by the notification on my iPad’s screen: ‘There is no data remaining on your current plan.’"

 Video Streaming, large and frequent downloads, and data usage when Wi-fi isn’t available are classic culprits.   Users who make the iPad a primary source of connectivity, as well as gamers, sports, or movie watchers can  certainly pony up for larger available data plans.

Users have noticed that they have warmer-then-usual lap when using the new iPad, a side effect of the larger screen, Retina display, and all the nuts and bolts underneath.  Apple wasn’t bothered by the concern murmuring, saying:
The new iPad also won’t charge while its in use, according to reports on The Next Web and Gizmodo.com. 
These drawbacks, other than the data usage issue, don’t amount to anything more than inconveniences to the user. Apple has the world’s heart, and we can’t do much more but chalk them up to technological facts of life.

Apple Sues Samsung

Apple filed a preliminary injunction against the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smart phone, claiming that the device violates the company/s patent claims.

Apple claims that the Google powered Android 4.0 phone violates its “data-taping patent,” as well as its “unified-search patent,” a “slide-to-unlock patent” and a “word-completion patent,” according to The Daily Beast.

If Apple wins the federal lawsuit, the Galaxy Nexus would not be able to be sold in the U.S.. This would be a serious blow to both Samsung and Google.

Samsung and Apple have filed at least 30 lawsuits against each other, Samsung told Business Week.
