No iPad 3 this year

No iPad 3 this year
We’ve been hearing rumors about the iPad 3 launching this Holiday season since before the iPad 2 launched, but that made little sense from the get-go - why would Apple break their successful yearly launch tradition and speed it up when no competition was even near the iPad? Well, JP Morgan’s recent report states once again that this is not going to happen - no iPad 3 this fall and the earliest it would arrive is 2012.

Common sense? Absolutely, but the analyst had some insider information as well saying that there are indeed prototypes in the supply chain and those are somehow related to the iPad 3. But that doesn’t mean the iPad 3 will get released any earlier than 2012.

"We do not expect a launch of the iPad 3 this year … In recent months, there has been rising investor speculation that a new iPad 3 would be launched for the holiday season. Our latest research continues to indicate that there is no such device slated for production this year. In our view, Apple should be in no rush. The other tablet entrants have stumbled so far, and that trend-line could persist deep into 2012. MMI and RIM have been recent disappointments, and we expect more stumbles from others,"JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz writes in the report.
Moskowitz’s predictions are coherent - previously the analyst said he expects Apple’s tablet to continue dominating by 2012 with share at that time reaching 62.8%. The first real threat - the analyst expects - will come when Windows 8 tablets arrive. 

Other analysts including IDC however predict a slightly different future for the iPad - one where Android plays catch-up relatively quickly and Amazon’s tablet competes as well, while Windows 8 is not necessarily that influential in the short term. In this parallel reality, the iPad would still reign supreme but with a humbler market share. It’s up to you to say which one would come true, but in either case it seems that Apple has no reason to rush the next-gen slate this Holiday season.

I do think once windows 8 hits people will start looking at that more. Windows does have a strong brand name and the hardware will probably be the same price with a lot more functionality. Maybe in 2-3 years apple can release mac os x for the iPad.

peter, religion is what you want it to be. worshiping jesus, mohammed, the spaghetti monster, or steve jobs produces the same chemical responce in people that "believe" deeply.

science fact.

ummmm... I thought that "freedom of religion" means that the government can't tell you how you should practice your beliefs. I have no argument to show that Apple-worship is socially unreasonable, even if it sounds dumb to me, therefore who am I to stop iFans from seeking the favor of their "master" Steve Jobs?

I can preach to them the ills of worshipping their idol iPhone/iPad/iPod/etc... through the "freedom of speech" as long as I am not belligerent or infringing on their reasonable request for peace and privacy. In America, we call this balance between total freedom and law-abiding behavior "liberty", and those who govern themselves reasonably (by generally-accepted societal definitions of "reasonable" within said community) well do great in such a society.

Are Buddhists not free to worship Buddha just because he was a man? The Japanese worshipped their Emporer as a living-god... the Egyptians worshipped Pharoah as the same. Obviously there are lines that are drawn on a societal level, such as the idea of religious human sacrifice or polygamy, which are illegal because they are socially abhorent to us, but beyond the obvious limits of reasonablilty there ought not to be limits on how, what, where, and for whom worship may be offered.

The Constitution says we have "freedom of religion", and that includes the freedom to worship anything or anyone within the socially-accepted limits in each community.

I know, people can have a religion about eating dogs or whatever.
That's why i always say i'm not into religion, i'm into God !
I don't believe in any religion, religion can bind people in a bad way, that's why i believe in God, not religion.
On a side note, you say "the same chemical responce in people that "believe" deeply. "
doesn't that just prove that evolution is false ?
If a creator created the earth and man, then he would make sure there is a chemical response when we worship him (even though some people have turned it on its head and worship Apple or whatever they worship,). Evolution would not do that by random changes.

zoom... as a latter-day saint (a.k.a. "Mormon") who gets accused of worshipping Joseph Smith, Jr. (one of our prophets, but certainly not our "God") all the time, I can appreciate the good correction and clarification.

... maybe it is simply a "New Age Religion". Religions are not required to "make sense" by any specific definition. I think people should feel free to discuss religion, even proselyte, but it ought to be done with the highest of respect, and without compulsion or force.

Bad religion brings slavery and tyranny, and seeks to make its adherents ignorant... good religion brings liberty of worship and expression, and invites its adherents closer to the truth. Religion is a two-edged sword, so don't be so quick to say that all religion is bad.

A sect? A religion? It sort of is... sort of. If you give more of your time, talents, and resources to having and caring for your iPhone or iPad, I suppose it is sort of worshipful... sort of.

a few things

1) if you only worship god, then do you also share views with jewish and muslim people like say ramadan and eating kosher? They both worship the same god. If not, then your still christian and need to accept that.

2) that physical effect in your brain is an endorphine release and the activation of a very certain part of your brain. you get it from believing in ANYTHING and something happening that fulfills that belief. It has nothing to do with your god, nor that pop up book belief called creationism.
If i believed in pink poodles and worshiped them, and a pink poodle crossed my path, i would get the same head rush that you would get by some religious moment.

1. i'm not denying i'm a Christian. What i'm saying is that i'm not into religion, i'm into God. I don't go to church like some people do, i just believe in God and have a personal relationship with him, it's that simple. I hope you understand what i mean here.
2. First, creationism is not any pop up book belief. I've already told you that in order to believe evolution, you need to do some serious amount of believing as 90 % of the evidence points to creation (and the rest 10 % of evidence for the evolution consists mainly of carbon 14 dating, which anyway is proven a incorrect method of dating).
Second, i don't think your'e getting my point.
If you believe in something and worship something like a poodle then you would create a certain kind of chemical. If a creator created man, would it not make sense that he created it in such a way that whenever man worships his creator, he would produce a certain kind of chemical ?
Why would evolution to that with natural selection ?
why would evolution produce a kind of chemical whenever a man worships something like Apple or a poodle or God ?
That sure doesn't make sense scientificly !
the only thing that makes sense here is that God created man in such a way.

Its a freaking picture, You people that are chooseing to be offended by that are pathetic.

"Lets raise a stink, let everyone know im not happy, let everyone know i love my god" WE DONT CARE

IDK where some of you got the idea that anyone on here cares? Keep that crap for your facebook page, complain on there to your "friends".

Granted i know the intellect level may not be to high here, but lets try to keep on technology at the very least.

problem with creationists.

every time you dont have an exact answer you insert "god" and then say its proof of something else.

lack of an answer for anything is not proof of another thing.

noone outside of christians believes that creationism has any basis of reality. it is a strictly secular belief that belongs to a very small group of people, and thats why it should never be taught outside of churches.. and especially not in a publicly funded place like school, where an unknowing child might confuse religious misinformation as scientific fact or proof.

you say 90% of all proof, proves creationsism.. you also say that google is going to start acting like apple by dumping all its partners and gouging people through motorola... and bada is going to become a huge OS.

Where did i insert God isntead of a exact answer, tell me that ???
I didn't did i !?
You know, lately there have been quite a significant number of evolutionist scientists that have left evolution simply on the basis that evolution simply doesn't make sense. These have not been christians, these have been only scientists doing their job.

This is exactly the problem with evolutionists. Whenever the evidence is against them, they start to bash and start talking about google and Motorola, instead of trying to meet the evidence with scientific answers (which they can't and therefore start bashing. We have a saying in sweden that, When you run out of words, you take to the fists.)

Let me give you one quick evidence. If dinosour footprints have been ofund together with human footprints, is the theory of evolution destroyed. Answer is YES !
Is there any such evidence ?
YES, in fact it's right in Texas !

the only thing that makes sense here is that God created man in such a way."

that entire thought process is "well i dont know the answer, so im going to insert god and call it a day"

i dont claim to have the all the answers, only religious people do. If you dont have an answer, you default to god. if you dont like an answer, you default to god. if the answer is obvious you find a way to tie it to god. Its exactly what you and ever other creationist i have ever met does. Its religous zealotry.

lol.. so, if dinosaurs and humans roamed the same area (which we are doing right now), then its proof that god exists and evolution is wrong!?!? lol. Ok, link me to this proof that puts a dinosaur SKELETON with a human SKELETON in the exact same spot beside each other... not a foot up or down, in precicely the same spot. foot prints are too easy to fake.

peter, your a nice guy, but sometimes your rediculous. :)

There has been found footprints of humans and dinosaurs in exactly the same geologic layer, at exactly the same place.. They have been found side by side, and even some where the human footprint has been inside that of a dinosaur footprint.
Here are the link. (don't worry, this link is safe. It will take you towww.creationevidence.com)
And here is a very detailed video of the footprints.
I recomend you start watching at 23 minutes and 40 seconds (that's when the evidence for the footprints are showed)
they have also been trough scanning, and proven to be real human footprints, not faked.
Also, there has been found for example a old hammer buried inside lower cretaceous rock !
However i'm not going to dicsuss creation much more here on phonarena though as it is off topic. If you want a email conversation i'd be glad to have it : )

peter, how do they know that footprints were at the same time and place and not just a cosmic coincidence of placement? Carbon 14? isnt that the same thing you constantly try to discredit. its either credible, or its not.. its not credible only when u want it to be.

there is no discussion, this is why i wouldnt entertain it before. you cant discuss something unless your mind is open to it. hard core creationists do not have an open mind to evolution, anymore than an athiest like myself has a mind opening for creationism.

Since your going science on us remixfa, swallow this,
If religion believes God created the heavens and the earth, where was there for God to exist before he created everything, science and math say absolute zero is zero. NOTHING means not God no NOTHING.
Religion is a way people created to explain the unexplainable Where did we come from and why are we here. Science has found where we came from and the answer is .....NOT GOD

there has been thousands of gods over the history of man, each one to explain something not understood. it hasnt changed. most people have replaced polytheism with monotheism, but the end result is the same. each and every believer believed that they were right and that other beliefs were wrong. that still hasnt changed either. Its much worse though when you have a religion based losely on fact instead of straight fiction.. like christianity/mulsim/hebrew vs roman or greek gods. Its much harder to get a point across when there is some factual validity in their holy books. they confuse some historical validity for pure validity.

the reason we know that the footprints where at the same time, is because it is found at exatly the same spot, in exactly the same layer of rocks. that has nothing to do with Carbon 14 dating. Even evolutionist scientists recognize these footprints are from the same time.
Please watch the links i gave you, if you have not done so already.

Oh boy...
the answer to your question is simple. God is not affected by time or our universe, he is outside it. He created it !
