I was holding my iPad today and I noticed it feels better in my left hand than it does in my right. If you don't already hold your iPad in your left hand I think you should try it. Take note of other conditions: that the sun was not quite out but it was mid-afternoon. I have a ceiling fan on for airflow throughout the living room and I was sitting on a leather couch (allegedly leather) with brown shorts and a black t-shirt on. I didn't have shoes on and maybe that helped the extra level of comfort. I had Alkaline Trio playing in the background.
