    iMAC and iPAD radiation

    In September 2012 we moved to a new school building. Some new iMacs came. I have one in my room. I was getting nasty radiation from it. I did not suspect it. I called site manager to inspect central heating radiator. There were other computers in the room. Could not figure out from where it is coming. If the door was closed within one hour the radiation will feel like burning the face. It took three months for me to realize that it is coming from nice looking new iMAC.

    Around six months ago few iPADS came for teachers. I took one home. We started getting burning smell. Did not suspect the iPAD. I was checking kitchen, central heating, TVs, electrical plugs, chargers, etc. My children was getting nasty headaches. Time was passing. Could not pinpoint the source of the smell. Checked the garden if neighbour was burning something. Nothing. Outside is clear.

    Suddenly oneday I just thought how about the IPAD. I tested. Yes it is the iPAD that is giving radiation. This is last item you would suspect to give serious radiation that gives burning eyes and headaches. Such a nice looking gadget.

    Apple must be using something in these items that when heated gives this radiation.

    From Apples own forums: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0 It seems there may be a problem with the OP's battery(s) and should get it looked at ASAP!

    Do you have a photograph of your Geiger counter showing how much radiation is being emitted?

    Everybody knows iPads and iMacs radiate. They radiate the sheer joy of being an Apple product.

    Thanks for the link. It is exactly similar problem with mine both iMAC and iPAD. I thought it was only me that felt this strange thing. It took so long for me to suspect this beautiful looking monster.

    This confirms it.

    Apple are evil.

    We kicked up a fuss when Microsoft tried to bundle a web browser into the OS.

    We didn't with apple becuase they were so shiny. Now they are putting radioactive material into the devices becuase they just know they will get away with it due to all the apple fanboys out there.

    I'm just feeling left out because @Domino supplied me with one of those rubbish computers that doesn't have added radiation

    And he's on the other side of the room from the Ruckus AP now, his radiation levels are dangerously low...
