    Was joking, it's near my city and we normally get cloud.

    'Stoke-on-Trent' is also rhyming slang for 'Bent'

    Although that wouldn't really make any sense in this context!

    Weird, I just used my 3G in full sunlight for 5 days straight on a trip to Turkey-30C ambient and no overheating at all. Did not use a case, I wonder if that's the key.

    I was at the beach this weekend and I had my iPad in the trunk of my car while we were playing minigolf. When I came back to the car, the thing was nearly on fire and it of course wouldn't fully turn on, giving me the error message about being too hot. I'm not too worried about it, after a few minutes in the AC it was fine. I think it is just a safeguard built into the thing.

    Sounds reasonable. It's probably also a good safety measure as it certainly doesn't seem it's ever going to get that hot, by itself. It seems no matter what intensive thing I've run on the thing, the whole device remained cool. Something I took notice of, because neither my phone nor my laptop could do that.
