New iPads too hot to handle

Apple Inc. (AAPL)'s new iPad runs "significantly hotter" than the earlier model when handling processor-intensive tasks such as playing graphics-heavy games, according to Consumer Reports, which tested the device.
The newest version of the market-leading tablet computer ran as hot as 116 degrees Fahrenheit (47 degrees Celsius), the magazine said yesterday on its website. Consumer Reports, published by the consumer-watchdog group Consumers Union, used a thermal-imaging camera to record the temperature while playing the action game "Infinity Blade II."
Paul Reynolds, electronics editor for the magazine, downplayed the results.
"We don't think this is a cause for any serious concern," Reynolds said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. At its hottest, the iPad "felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period," Consumer Reports found, says Bloomberg.


However, thermal testing performed by Consumer Reports has demonstrated that the iPad 3 runs about 10 degrees Fahrenheit (~5 degrees Celsius) hotter than its predecessor, and reached a maximum temp of 116 degrees while running Infinity Blade II for 45 minutes.Consumer Reports stopped short of declaring the next antenna-gate, concluding that the iPad 3 "felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period" during use.
Interestingly, the iPad 3 only reached a temperature of 113 degrees while unplugged. It wasn't until the device was plugged in to a charger that the temperature rose further still to 116 degrees.
While running the test the battery continued to drain slowly - even while plugged in, showing that the new iPad is unable to simultaneously run processor-hungry apps and charge the battery, informs Tapscape.

In recent years, genetics has become a cutting-edge science, not only in the professional field of biology, but also because of the enormous social reach of its discoveries and approaches. Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
