Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

The problem is that Apple expects you to put the tablet on its back when typing, but this means that when you are trying to select text or position the cursor, your finger obscures the magnifying glass!

I don't get this. When you hold your finger down the magnifying glass is above your finger. Unless you have some sort of upside down grip you're not going to obscure the magnifier.


Think about the line of sight when you lay the iPad down on a table. Your finger will be in the way. Thom's absolutely right; it's a huge hassle mitigated only by a stand that props the iPad at an angle.
