I'll just nip it all in the bud...

My case is yellowing
The case has a slight light leak
The screen is too blue
The screen is too brown
The screen color is uneven
Battery life is not what I expected
The rotation switch broke off
My water sensor is tripped, but I swear I never got it wet!


Did I miss anything?

I added a poll since it would be interesting to see if we can guess what will be the issue. I forgot to add Wifi or 3G issues. Crap.

I should have bought that waterproof sleeve.

I think maybe cracked screens from shipping looking at that big chunk of glass sitting with only a thin strip of cardboard between it and the outside world seems a bit risky. Surprised they didn't put some foam there or something.

No kidding, it must be some strong shock absorbing glass.
I can imagine apple employees dropping a couple in the back that land face down.

Is anyone else having syncing problems? Mine keeps getting hung up. Also, how do you separate the iPhone apps from the iPad apps? It started putting all my iPhone apps on the iPad and I don't want that. In the drop down menu in iTunes it doesn't list them separately. So some, like Trapster, I can't tell which is for which.

My current issues:

* I seem to have duplicated my address book, so I have double entries.
* The iTunes application arranger for landscape mode always puts the bottom row of apps on the next page.

My first one was DOA at the Apple store. They quickly replaced with a new one.

First, the accelerometer wouldn't change the screen orientation, then the iPad just flat out died.

Wish I added wifi issues.

Looks like that is the defect for the first revision.

I thought an addition to a house was a new deck, spa, bedroom, upper story. I didn't know that personal electronics qualified for the same category.
