    I know sounds like I am a wimp but the edge of the iPad 2 digs into my pinky when I hold it in my hands. Anyone else notice this?

    You could try wearing a driving glove on one hand whenever you use it. It'd have the added bonus of not only helping save your pinky pain but making you look totally awesome too *cough*

    the way I was inclined to hold it dug into my hand in a very uncomfortable way...didn't do it with ipad 1...but holding it this way also destroyed my wifi signal (also didn't happen with ipad 1), so I switched it up.

    How exactly did you change the way you hold it? I keep trying different positions, but it's hard to find a position where one edge or other isn't digging into my palm.

    Before, I had my hands under the bottom corners. I now keep my hands at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock. It requires that I actively hold it, rather than lazily rest it, but it is what needed to happen. I just bought a silicon shell online, and I'm hoping to be back to my lazy method no later than Monday.

    Not just this one, nearly every response seems designed to boost the ego of their brilliant authors. Perhaps at 28 I'm too mature for the kiddies.

    Why judge the person ? They didn't bad mouth the product.

    Simply posted a question and all the toddlers make fun of him or her. I'm surprised the word troll wasn't used, it's one of their favorites.

    Out of pure curiosity...How are you holding it? Is it resting on your pinky?

    Sounds odd but Ive had similar issues. The edges of the aluminum bezel are actually very sharp and the bottom left of mine in particular sliced a little flesh today.
