    With so many people spilling water/coke/wine/bodily fluids on their laptops/iPhones at the moment can we not have a separate spills forums for these unfortunates? It'll only get worse with the iPad...

    At the moment these things end up all over the place...

    There's already a guide for it. If you're going to create a spills forum, why not a battery forum? Or how about a "virus on the mac" forum?

    Maybe with sub-forums for each substance spilled too...

    EDIT: Oh, and a forum for sarcastic threads so EVERYONE can get it...

    What about those who drop their device into toilet/pool/hot tub. Would that fall under a Spills forum or would we also need a Submersion forum?

    That is a very tricky question indeed. Again I feel the iPad will end up seeing a lot of this sort of thing.

    Maybe we could just have a "Clumsy B******" section?

    That would cover spills, submersions and drops.

    No question about that
    However, the lack of a physical keyboard will help mitigate some of the more common MBP issues with spills

    It would have to be "Clumsy B******, Inept Friends and Facepalm Moments". I think that would capture it all :D

    "My friend and I were messing around, he was waving it around all over the place and my brand new iPad got covered".

    I imagine this post or similar will be made within one month of the iPads being delivered.

    I'm wondering if he meant to spell it that way.

    Add this to the frequently seen list:
    "I am a troll, I don't have an Apple product, but I like to pretend there is a problem with 'my' product."

    LOL. You can blame it on Adobe

    I'm just waiting for the "iPad overheating/yellow screen/stuck pixel" threads. Now that will deserve its own forum.
