    I am thinking about getting the new ipad and I just read about the heat issue. Has anyone took the new ipad on a camping trip yet? I usually take the kids camping in upper Michigan and it gets pretty cold. We usually build a campfire but it seems that it may be more environmentally friendly to just bring an ipad instead. We could all gather around it to stay warm and not have smoke in our faces. Also, which game/app is best to make sure the ipad stays hot while maximizing battery life?

    I'm pretty sure there's an app specifically designed to heat up the screen.

    Forgot what it was called.... But it claims to work.

    It would be best to get a propane camp stove to lay the iPad on top of. The metal and glass will act as a radiator and spread the heat around. Don't forget to post pictures. :)

    don't forget to bring marshmallows to roast over the iPad. Oh and to be safe and not start any forest fires I would bury the iPad before you go to sleep.

    Be sure to dump a bucket of water on it before you bury it. Just to be extra safe.
