    I have the same issue with my iPad mini. But for me, when it reconnects to the router, I do no actually get a connection to the internet until I turn off wifi and turn it back on. Is this what yours is doing? Regardless, I can vouch for the problem.

    I have an ipad that was given to me through work. I missed an email from our IT support people saying not to update to IOS7 until they were sure there weren't any problems. Consequently I updated my ipad and not only don't I like the look of it now but the internet connection keeps dropping. Only thing I can do to fix this is to keep switching the router on and off and then after aeveral attempts I finally get the internet connection re - established (it's not the router as my netbook works fine). Other people at work who also updated their ipads are having similar problems. Given I use the ipad mainly for browsing the internet this is a real pain. SueD

    I also experienced the same issue and no fix is available. Reset the Network setting, renew lease, press the power button and home button together,etc. None works!

    They need to be marked with OS compatibility because some look interesting, but it would help me go through them faster if it was easier to identify the Mac compatible ones

    I like your alert emails. They point out utilities/features I would not have thought to look for. But, I get too many of them! I got 11 in one month - including your Giveaway which I'm not particularly interested in. Four (one a week) would have been more than enough.

    I don't really like it--my computer already fits all my needs, and most of the apps featured on CNet are cliché enough that I already know about them. The most interesting and cool ones are already featured in other articles on MUO.

    So personally, I don't mind it, but it'd be nice if I could have a special RSS feed without it.
