I found the cord that comes with my ipad to be too short. I put it on the floor when plugging it in to recharge and didn't lean it up against the wall. My husband walked on it, in the dark, and smashed the screen to smithereens. It still works fine, but it is now in the repair shop for a $200 screen replacement. It was three weeks old. Note to self: don't lie your ipad down on the floor. My stupid.
