    As many posters have noted, scrolling behaviour has changed in 3.2. Under previous firmwares, scrolling rate had been fixed; this is no longer true. Perhaps it is due to the size of the iPad's screen, that Apple saw fit to change scrolling behaviour. Load Engadget on iPad's Safari browser, scroll to the middle of the page, and flick the page up and down, never letting the page settle; one will note that the rate of scrolling increases with seemingly no bound the longer one does this. This works in every app, every list, every instance where scrolling is possible. To be frank, I find this change to interfere with my browsing, as I often find myself scrolling past material I wish to view. What are your thoughts on the matter?

    I thought I was the only one who noticed this, I dislike it, but it's a very minor complaint, one that I only find myself coming across when I'm using it lazily.

    Actually the bad thing about such fast scrolling for me is that you often just fill the screen with the checker-board pattern until you stop scrolling, especially if the page is still finishing loading. With the 3GS, you can only scroll so far so fast, and so the processor keeps up with it much better.

    This is especially problematic on big sites with lots of media like engadget.
