  1. Apple has updated a support document to say that it will address iPad Wi-Fi issues in an upcoming software update. A handful of iPad owners have experienced issues with Wi-Fi connectivity, and in the meantime, the company has provided a few potential workarounds.

    I'm sorry...what does screen brightness have to do with wi-fi?

    And kudos to Apple for providing a fix to the problem that they shouldn't have bothered with. We've never noticed this major flaw in routers because no one else has the superb coding skills as Apple's programmers. +1

    ??? The iPad is not confirming to standard networking communication when dealing with sleep mode. Apple dropped the ball on this one, however, it's nice to see a fix in the works. Sometimes apple ignores issues for ages before it gets around to fixing them.

    This iPCrab wireless issue is a total fiasco, crApple should acknowledge the problem for once: it is clearly a faulty design, do a callout of the iPCrab or clearly explain why my iMac works ok with the router but the iPCrab doesn't!

    It's not Apple's fault (even though other wi-fi devices don't seem to have the problems that the iPad does with certain 3rd party routers). It's obviously somebody else's fault. Even so, out of the goodness of their heart, Apple is going to release a fix to the wi-fi issue. Just ignore the nagging little voice in your head telling you that the only way the issue could be fixed with just an update to the iPad would be if the issue was in the iPad to begin with... Don't listen, just log into iTunes and buy a few songs, listen to those instead... That's right, nothing to see here, move along... Good sheep, err, I mean customers...

    At least wifi issues can be fixed with an update and not have to re call all the products!

    Why would apple ever be to blame? All of the problems associated with its products are the fault of applications written in Flash, or of outdated router firmware. If everyone else would just keep up, then apple would have no flaws

    :/

    Seriously?
  8. It Just Works!
