This photo is a fake.

Anyone who has ever fried an egg in his life would know.

I am not saying the ipad cannot fry an egg.

I am saying this photo is not the real thing of an egg being fried by an ipad.

If the heat is evenly spread from the surface of the ipad back, then the egg should be evenly fried and the albumin would turn white uniformly across the whole egg.

The heat should spread from the bottom of the egg where it is in contact with the ipad; and spread to the top of the egg. So how can the top right edge of the egg be cooked first.

The back of the ipad is an unlikely frying surface, since if it was hot enough to fry an egg, it would be uncomfortable for ipad users to put on their laps.

The front screen of the ipad may more likely be used to fry the egg (as shown in numerous other YouTube videos)

The right top edge of the egg is fried brown and crisp when it is not even in contact with the ipad back surface. While the rest of the egg white is still uncooked.

It is clear that a hot air blower (maybe a hair dryer set to HOT temperature switch) was used to heat the egg in the photo. Blown from the right top side causing the right top edge to burn crisp.

Ah boss, not saying the picture is faked, but a lot of people are complaining the new iPad gets extremely hot, to the point of being uncomfortable to hold, with the hot spot centered in the bottom-right edge which is where the GPU is...
