Does your new iPad get warm? [Poll]

Does your new iPad get warm? [Poll]

Does your new iPad get warm? And is it a problem?

We first noticed our new iPads were getting a little warm on the lower left side right after we got them, but only because previous iPads had always stayed so cool. For years our MacBooks have burned under Flash and our iPhones have become tiny space heaters when tethering or using turn-by-turn GPS, so no big deal. You can't pack that big a screen, that high a capacity battery, that screaming a graphics chip, and that fast an LTE radio into a case almost the same size and not have all that power go somewhere, right?

The new iPads higher running temperature been confirmed by scientific testing now, and addressed in a quote from Apple, but that hasn't stopped the headlines tripping all over themselves already.

Luckily, iPads will cool down when we stop downloading or stop playing, but the dumb headlines will last forever.

In the meantime, we wanted to do our own poll of the iMore Nation and find out what our community of iOS enthusiasts thought of the issue. How hot is your iPad running? And is it too hot?

Is this just one more mainstream media attempt to get Apple into a fake-gate, or is the heat a real issue that deserves attention and will need to be further addressed?

Vote in the poll up top and let me know your thoughts in the comments, and in our new iPad forums!

Want landscape documents and more paper sizes for Pages for iPhone and iPad? We've got them for you!

One of the huge disappointments of Pages for iPhone and iPad is there are only two paper sizes available: US Letter and A4. Even worse, is that you can't even create a document with these sizes in landscape! However, if you first create the document in Pages for Mac and open it with Pages on your iPhone or iPad, the document size and orientation will remain unchanged.

How to watch Flash videos on your new iPad

How to watch Flash videos on your new iPad

Trying to figure out how to watch Flash videos on your new iPad? Unfortunately, Apple has never supported the Adobe Flash Player plugin (or any web browser plugin) for a number of stability, security, and other reasons, and Adobe has recently discontinued their attempts to get Flash to work properly on mobile devices in general. (It was designed for big, powerful computers, not highly portable, low power phones and tablets.)

But all hope is not lost! There are still a variety of ways to watch Flash videos on your iPad. (Some of these also work for Microsoft Silverlight content, like Netflix.com!)

Noteshelf vs. Remarks vs. Notability: iPad handwriting app shootout!

The iPad has led to a renaissance of apps for handwritten note-taking, but with top contenders like Noteshelf, Remarks, and Notability to choose from, which one is best for you?

Steve Jobs might not have been a fan of the stylus, but for many iPad users it's become an indispensable tool for note-taking, thanks to excellent handwriting apps like Noteshelf, Remarks, and Notability. At their core they all offer a big piece of digital paper for you to scribble, draw, scrawl, annotate, mock up, sketch out, or just plain write down your thoughts, ideas, and projects. Whether you're in a corporate brainstorming session, a student/teacher conference, or family meeting, they're your virtual whiteboard, sheet of lined or graph paper, scrapbook, and art pad all rolled into one. Yet each has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and each excels in different aspects of the same, broad purpose. So the question becomes, which one is best for you?
