Trouble In Paradise: iPad Users Complain Of Wifi Issues

A typical complaint is that the iPad shows no wifi signal, or a very weak signal, where other devices pick it up just fine: Having this issue with my iPad as well. It’s dropping down to one bar in a part of the house the most other devices, including my MBP and my iPhone, get full service. The WiFi is so dense in our house that I often get signal outside on most of my devices. The iPad’s WiFi antenna is like the new iMacs – it’s centrally located behind the Apple logo, and it’s tiny. Count me in as someone who’s having iPad Wifi issues as well. Early Macbook Air users complained of Wifi issues, too.

What would happen if third-party applications could multitask? So how is Apple going to enable support for multitasking? Thus, allowing for multitasking on Android is easy. “L’iPad est programmé pour être rapidement obsolète” - Eco(lo) - C'est l'événement de la journée.

La sortie en France de l'iPad, le dernier joujou d'Apple. Une tablette numérique qui permettra de naviguer sur Internet, jouer à des jeux vidéos, regarder des vidéos et des photos, écouter de la musique et aussi lire des livres et des journaux. Alors que beaucoup se félicitent de cette nouveauté technologique, des associations écologistes dénoncent le gaspillage des matières premières et les pollutions engendrées par cet appareil. Pour Anne Bringault, directrice de l'ONG Les Amis de la Terre, l'iPad est le "symbole d'une époque de surconsommation".
