Will the magnets in covers such as the Apple iCover and other third party magnetic covers cause damage and/or interfere with the iPad's functionality over time? I would think that it would, but I would like someone with an electrical/technical background to respond.

Thanks!

No, Apple's magnetic covers are designed not to interfere with the operation of the iPad. I can't speak for all third party devices but I'm sure that the named brand covers are designed the same way as Apple's.

Since the technology is built into the iPad and the cover designed by Apple, they've probably done the necessary due diligence to ensure no damage will occur.

Agreed with the others. Remember, the iPad contains no magnetic media (like a hard drive or floppy disks), so magnetism is not of concern.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
