Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

Well it seems the sizzling new iPad 3 really is… err… sizzling.

 

Consumer reports is now saying that during some intense gaming action which, of course will cause battery & processor activity, the temperature of the back of the new iPad 3 can reach 116 degrees Fahrenheit.  That temp is nothing to sneeze at.  Tests have shown that temps of 120 can cause damage to bare skin.

 

According to Apple, if the device gets too hot, it should give you a warning on the screen.  I haven't yet had a chance to purchase an iPad 3, although I will in the near future.

 

So my question to all of you tech loving readers is this.  If you own the new iPad 3, are you noticing incredible amounts of heat?  I want comments both positive & negative.  Now get to it!

 

Oh and if you'd like the full scoop from Consumer Reports, read it here.
