    My kneecaps have caught fire. Is that overheating?

    It does get warmer. Getting warmer and overheating are not the same thing. People should be more precise with their terminology.
    Several people are reporting that they are shutting down to cool down.. thats overheating

    Heat is something apple has never been good at.

    No actual problems at my end yet but I wouldn't expect using it for a few hours would be a huge problem.
    Independence... Nah!!!

    Wrong. But keep up with the misinformation. You're good at it.

    A Dutch site (English report here) reported a 5º C (9º F) difference between old and new iPads (tested by thermal imager) when running GLBenchmark to thrash the CPU and battery. Consumer Reports did the same by playing Infinity Blade II for 45 minutes. Their thermal imager showed a difference of 12º F (6.6º C).

    So other than trying to give Weeto instant buyer's remorse -- because, you know, he bought an Apple product -- did your post have ANY constructive purpose?

    As near as I can tell, your definition of "Damage control mode" is saying "It's not supposed to get that hot. If it does, it's *SUPPOSED* to shut down. Call customer service or bring it back to the store."

    Yup, boy, that's real "pull-the-wagons-into-a-circle" coverup material, there! The CIA's got nothin' on them!

    What makes you think I'm angry?

    This is a non-issue being blown up to gather eyeballs. It's just like the ridiculous antenna-gate.

    Does it get warmer? Yes. But that's it.

    A quick question. The latest version of the Ipad is comprable if not price to a high end labtop so why do MILLIONS of consumers choose the Ipad over a laptop that can do everything better than an Ipad as well as play games, dvds etc.
