Europe holiday day 4 – the iPAD saga gets worse

Written by Gary on October 4th, 2010

Following on from my recent issues with my wife’s iPad – see previous posts – it decided to cease functioning today!

As I have been doing. I loaded my 16gb SD card into the card reader and now with 144 jpeg + raw files totalling 2.3Gb the iPad photo viewer crashed while trying to read all the thumbnails.

I closed the app and turned off the iPad but the busy icon displayed and refuses to close it down – am waiting 5 hours now and still can’t close it.

No Apple store anywhere near here so have to wait until battery runs out and hope that rebooting it then will work.

If it was a Pc I would just take battery out but no option for this on the iPad!

Luckily the iPhone is still working although poor reception even with wifi networks here.

    Welcome to the world of apple. If you were to use it like it was designed, to be a fashion accessory, you wouldn’t have this problem. Using it for anything serious is just plain dreaming.

    Oh, you’re probably using your iPhone wrong 🙂

    I’m not sure i would blame Apple for poor reception in rural Italy.
