(Newser) – Apple says reading from an iPad is just like reading a book but books don't shut down when you read them under the sun, complain three users in a class-action suit. The plaintiffs say their iPads shut down from overheating after mere minutes in direct sunlight, Ars Technica reports. The suit calls for Apple to "redress and end this pattern of unlawful conduct."
