    Hi Guys,
    I got my ipad yesterday but have a concern regarding the positioning when watching videos in bed. I use the landscape mode (head tilted sideways on the pillow) , but when I position the ipad I feel like my earphone connector might break because they carry the whole weight of the ipad! Have you guys found a solution for this?

    Unless ice misunderstood what you're saying couldn't you just rotate it the other way seeing as you can use the iPad on any side?

    Yep, see attachment.

    But, unlike the picture suggests, you rest your head on the top of the pillow and your chest is "curved" to a horizontal axis, then you put your iPad on the slope, which is formed by your legs.

    The problem is that I can't stay in that position for too long, I like to keep switching between the sides.

    Don't turn to you side, keep straight and rest your iPad on your knees - which are, obviously, upright.

    I suggest propping up the iPad against a compressed part of your sheets

    Turn the iPad 180 degrees.

    I guess iPad can be considered a drug now.

    It made OP lose all his common sense. :apple:

    This is a hilarious thread for a number of reasons:

    1. The OP is either trying to be funny or has lost all common knowledge.
    2. Other posters have found this as an excuse to show off their art skills.
