I know I'm wearing a tin-foil hat here, but I was wondering if there's any fix out there. iPad is awesome except two things : 1 - It always ping apple.com to check internet connectivity. I don't really care if I'm behind a captive portal or not, but I just don't want it to ping apple every time it goes online. 2 - Once it's online, it always maintain a connection to *.push.apple.com even if everything is signed out, push notification & find my iPad feature disabled. Now I just have to put it under airplane mode when not in use. It's kind of a hassle. Is there any way to fix these "features" out there? I wouldn't mind jailbreaking it if that's what needed. I just don't want it to talk to the mothership unless absolutely necessary.
