iPaw: the new scourge of the tablet owning classes

Posted on by Mike Evans

Forget Blackberry Thumb, the new scourge of the tabletting classes is iPaw. According to The Telegraph, regular users of iPads and other tablets could be at risk of developing chronic muscular pain. Doctors are dubbing it iPad Hand but I prefer to call it iPaw.

Apparently many users prop up the iPad in the palms of their hands (shock!) and others prefer to lay it flat on their knees (horror!). No doubt the recommendation is to hang it from the ceiling and communicate via Siri (when he comes to iPad 3….)

This could be yet another bonanza for the lawyers as iPad users sue their employers and, even, Apple. Apple has yet to respond. Quite right, too.
