    Welcome to the post iPad era!

    How do you recall such a problem? What can you really do? This is a design problem, you can't throw a washer on it an send it back to the consumer. Will Apple with 100 billion free dollars sitting around take back every iPad and replace them with something that works?

    Nope.

    Let me tell you how I think they will fix it. They will downclock the GPU. They are going to put out a software update to scale back graphics performance.

    When they attempt to "fix the symptom" instead of throwing out this trash and giving their clients new iPads at the caliper of what they expect then you know we're in the post iPad era.

    Steve Jobs thought he was so brilliant by going with ARM in the iPad. How's his magic thinking working now? "I got it, let's pretend the iPad doesn't have a problem."

    Had they gone with Intel they wouldn't be in this situation. They would be at 32nm on the processor right now.
