    Re-read the Apple Fan quote you used which relates to anyone with hot iPad problems not just himself, as a result it appears you are criticising anyone who "claims" to have the heat problem.

    False.

     

    That was a response to jdogxdizzle's specific question: "Would the new iPad still get warm if I just used it for surfing the web?" (#18468727).

     

    Plus- Apple Fan's quote includes the simple fabrication: "keep it on a coffee table in front of you while using like Apple suggests and like shown on all the TV advertisements."

    ".... my wife and I both with the iPhone 4 also knew of approximately 8 people personally who also had the iPhone 4 and not one of us had the issue"

     

    This is the blind allegiance that I am talking about, or pure denial, your choice.  Every single iPhone 4 has the antenna problem, every one (not counting those produced after Consumer Reports gave their opinion, Apple could have sneaked a fix in there...plastic lamination or something).  If you hand me any iPhone 4, I can place one pinky finger tip on the lower left outer edge of the phone and reception bars will drop, it is very easy to demonstrate.  It may not drop a call, but it certainly affected signal strength as proven by Consumer Reports   http://www.pcworld.com/article/200924/consumer_reports_throws_iphone_4_under_the _bus.html

     

    Read the article if you don't remember, but Apple hardly acknowledged the problem known to everyone else in the world.  It didn't affect every person because some people are in denial and some people hold there phone differently or not at all, but it most certainly affected every single iPhone 4.  It was a design flaw.  So it is a perfect example of how Apple fans will simply ignore a known problem and deny it until the end.

     

    Kim Hill, thank you for making my point, I simply don't care about the sock puppetry or trolling, I care about the other side of the coin, the mistreatment of Apple consumers by those posing as helpers on this forum.  There is no conspiracy here, just people disappointed with an expensive new product.

    like when using wireless or Bluetooth devices for safety while driving or convenience in other situations?

     

    Don't you get tired of trying to prove the fact that I've had no issues false? Show me, prove to me how I had an issue, because I don't recall having one.

    You can't even come to grips with an informed consumer enjoying a product without issues.

    My son is still using that phone today and with no issues. How is that? Please all powerful anti Apple wizard tell us how this son of mine and I managed to "blindly" use an iPhone 4 with no issues.

    These guys are actually suing Apple over the overheating issue and yet look at their reasonableness in their claim.

     

    " The lawsuit does not claim the iPad is inherently defective; rather, it asks Apple to be more accurate in how it promotes this product."

     

    They're not saying its defective which is what you are claiming, rather that they should make an adjustment in the advertised operating temperatures disclosure.

     

    If this can be proven then it should be done. Sounds fair to me.

     

    Hey OSX back in the days mobs would burn people whom they thought were witches even if their activities and or beliefs did not prove them to be so just by accusations based on the perception of those individuals doing the torchings.

     

    You seem like the type with all that talk about

    Are you reading my posts and looking up the words you don't understand?  I'm not sure that you are.

     

    "Show me, prove to me how I had an issue, because I don't recall having one."  -You are one of the people that I stated didn't knowingly have an issue, but your iPhone4 did and still does.  It is a design flaw, in the design...of every iPhone4...even the one your son now owns.  The class action lawsuit was just settled this year, everyone with an iPhone4 gets $15 from Apple (I know, not a lot to write home about), if your son wants to jump through a few Apple hoops, he has until August 28 to claim his cash.

     

    Humor is what makes the world go around, I am glad I could brighten your day.  If you want to have another laugh pull out your son's iPhone4 out of its case and use a finger to cover the joint at the lower left edge of the phone, wait and watch your bars of reception drop away.  Here's a link where a guy uses a key, but anything conductive will work...including your sweaty hand or finger:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvH-i7rKPJc&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    For months Apple and their more freakish fans had denied a problem, some still deny it today even though it has been proven for two years.  Maybe every iPad3 runs too hot as well, maybe not.  Either Apple has poor quality control and some lemons get sold, or they have good quality control and just poor designs in some products.  I do think their Beta testers have been drinking the Kool-Aide too, or else they'd find these problems before they hit the market.

    False.

     

    Given the way you cling to the two-year-old antenna kerfuffle, I'd at least expect you to understand it, but clearly you don't. It cannot be demonstrated at will — it requires not only a particular kind of hold, but a also a particular signal level. Without both, you can't make it happen.

     

    I say that as an iPhone 4 owner from the beginning — who never used a case; never experienced the problem in real-world use, and had difficulty duplicating it. None of my iPhone 4-owning friends ever experienced the problem in real-world use either.

     

    Your conspiracy theory that Apple "sneaked a fix" into the iPhone 4 (miraculously fooling the entire tech press + Internet) works best as self-parody.

     

    If you think that your shrill, novella-length partisanship is any less irritating or "fanatical" than a pro-Apple counterpoint, you really are fooling yourself.

    True

     

    Explains why Apple fired someone over it, why they re-designed it, and why they knew about it well before product launch:

    http://www.tomsguide.com/us/iphone-4-iphone-antenna-reception-recall,news-7494.h tml

    If it wasn't broke, why did they fix it?  I already said not everyone will notice it, but it is in every phone.

     

    And Apple most definitely is going to "fix" things in firmware without you ever knowing that they did so, that's not consipiracy...just historical fact.  Also they aren't going to acknowledge a problem without being forced to by the industry and consumers, more historical fact.

     

    I am obviously non-partisan as I sit on the border between Apple products and every other bit of awesome tech available in the world.  As stated I own Apple products and love what they do right and hate what they do wrong.  These posts are addressed to members of the Cult of Apple and NOT APPLE, yet everyone gets personally defensive about Apple.  I wouldn't use the word Cult if all of you stopped behaving like cult members, notice how nobody gets into these diatribes on other technology forums...it is all because of you guys.  I just have a low tolerance for lies and BS, both abound here and on Apple related forums.  Make sense now?  Of course not, you can't reason with cult members.

     

    Let people quietly post here about their iPad Heat Issues without your diatribe or paranoid theories and you won't hear from me, simple isn't it?

    You & your 2-year-old antenna fixation. And unlike me, you never even owned the phone!

     

    Dude, you're in a cult yourself- you just can't see it.

    I didn't own the phone because I am smart enough to not blindly early adopt a device just because of the logo on it.  I have the 3GS and the iPad2 and I am relatively happy with both (Except for the iPad2's token placeholder rear camera which is a hunk of crap, and crappy spell check).  I have several friends who owned the iPhone4 and worked at the Apple Genius Bar (using the term genius extremely loosely), and they have all conceded, after their initial denial, that the antenna issue exists as a design flaw from their experience at the Bar.  I am proud I could help deprogram them and will be happy if you learn something too.  Oh and I didn't get the 4S because it isn't as comfortable as the 3GS is to hold, and because I decide when I want to upgrade instead of being manipulated into thinking I need to.

     

    p.s. every time you try to turn my criticism around on the me, you are exhibiting a textbook cult member response that is common in all cults from Scientology to other religious fundamentalist sects... that should be an eye-opener for you.

    Sure- the best-selling iPhone 4 was defective — plus, you're "obviously non-partisan." And your opponents need to be "deprogrammed."

     

    The more you write, the clearer it all becomes!

    Yours is post #1258 in this thread, and you are asking this now?  Seriously?

     

    Yes, the iPad 3 runs warmer than the iPad 2.  No, it's not a problem according to Apple.... they say it runs within spec.  If Apple says it's OK, you should believe them.
