Tele-Read says some Californians have sued Apple because the iPad is not "just like" a book.

As I learned the other day when I came back out to my hot car, the iPad has a built-in heat sensor which shuts off the device when it reaches 95 degrees Fahrenheit, safeguarding the electronics from heat damage. Therefore, Apple’s advertising that “Reading on iPad is just like reading a book” represents fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive advertising, and a litany of other malfeasance.

Meanwhile, in genuine, serious iPad complaints, Gizmodo has a good explanation of why magazine publishers are pissed at Apple for not allowing them to sell iPad subscriptions, and why Apple won't let them do it.
