Researchers at Harvard's School of Public Health found more people are experiencing head, neck, and shoulder pain from using their iPads too much.

They say users who put the gadgets on their laps, or look at it at low angles can put more pressure on their joints. The ideal way to hold an iPad is neither completely vertical nor flat, but somewhere in between. Researchers say don't stay in one position too long to avoid pain.
