iPad's Goldilocks paradigm

The influencial watchdog Consumer Report can't make up its mind about the new iPad and is happy to keep jumping the fence until its gets its review just right.

The new iPad seems to be going through a Goldilocks paradigm with the Consumer Reports.

First the industry watchdog said that the tablet gets too hot  when running  graphically intensive games. Then it complained about the battery life going dead cold when the device was kept on the maximum brightness setting for too long.  

But after all the criticism, the influential watchdog has now found the tablet to be just right, by putting it at the top of its tablet list.

But as today’s infographic demonstrates, Consumer Reports  finally appears to be in line with consumer sentiment around Apple’s new tablet. Savvy shoppers are more concerned about how much they are paying for the new tablet and its data packages than they are about the product's little quirks.
