Ha Ha: iPad Users Reporting Wi-Fi Problems

It’s barely 48 hours out of the gate and already those who bought the Apple iPad are reporting a serious flaw: poor Wi-Fi reception. Without the Internet, the iPad is DOA. The discussion board on the Apple Web site is already rife with complaints about non-working or barely-working Wi-Fi. One user notes, “Wifi reception seems weak with slow downloads. Getting one bar while my MBP getting a strong signal.” That user isn’t alone. I noticed last night that the Wi-Fi signal indicator on my iPad had dropped to just one bar — as I was sitting five feet from my Wi-Fi router. My laptop, which was right next to me, showed full signal strength. I decided to test it out around my house to see what gives.
