iPad Battery Nonsense

Lex Friedman, writing for Macworld:

Your new iPad’s battery is fine. Despite some media reports suggesting that Apple’s newest tablet suffers from a pair of battery-related issues, Macworld’s own research concludes that the third-generation iPad’s battery works as designed, and that customers needn’t fear harming the battery by over-charging it.

Why would anyone believe that Apple, of all companies, would design a product that gets damaged if you do the obvious thing and simply leave it plugged in overnight? Some outfits are so desperate for negative iPad stories that they’ll report allegations that don’t even make sense.
