Default iPad/tablet pillow...'-}}

Ok...for those of you will an iPad or other tablet, you might want to take a look at this nifty accessory...the ePillow which according to the December issue of Maximum PC:

"...the ePillow does what it's made to do, which is to make your laptop-replacing tabet more lap-friendly. It cradles and props up any10-inch tablet so you can read, browse, email and watch cat-videos in comfort..."

Good idea. God knows that a normal pillow for $5 from the dollar store wouldn't do the trick.

My iPad2 gets a bit warm occasionally, but not remotely hot. I take it to bed with me so that I can look things up when reading in bed, and it lies happily on the bed for hours without heating up at all.

I wondered since one of the users in Gadgets & Gear commented about hearing a fan start up ...

Come to think of it, that's one big plus for a tablet - no fan, no intake on the bottom. You can be a total couch tubifer/matress lizard with few worries about overheating. Another excuse for sloth!
