No iPad 3 this year

0. phoneArena 19 Sep 2011, 06:46 posted on

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…

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

until all the world shares 1 religious view, blasphemy is strictly local. websites are omnipresent on the web, so blasphemy does not apply.

These are some of the most ignorant comments I have ever read. It has become quite predictable, Android fanatics just regurgitate the same old jokes over and over and think they are funny. You people live sad little lives. I do not (worship) apple, I am using a Droid Bionic and will consider switching to the Iphone 5 after I see what it has to offer. Funny thing is that Phandroids are the most closed minded people I have ever come across.

Sadly true in many cases. iPhone fanatics (and they do exist) happen to quite clearly know the name of the man who invented their idol OS, but Android fanatics (and there are quite a few) seem to invoke the name of their OS "creator" less frequently... possibly because many of them really don't know the name...

WP7 is a given... fail to acknowledge "The Bill Gates", and he will hit the "smite" key on his special keyboard...

@hallucinator I think your wrong about android fans being closed minded I'm an android fan and I have a samsung focus, atrix 4g, samsung infuse, and the iPhone 2g,3g,3gs. I used to like apple, but the whey they handle business I don't like it, that's why I bash them and the fanboys who are very closed minded and hate everything that's not apple, so I think your name describes the frame of mind your in right now that's why you posted such a stupid comment, so I'll let you pass, stay off the drugs buddy:)

Pete, cut out the "I'm Christian, so I don't agree with this article/picture/video/whateva..." Remix, and others, quit trying to prove to the "Christian" that science has proved his religion to be false. THE END!

If you go where the evidence is, then you won't ignore all the evidence agaisnt evolution. The least oyu can do is read the evidence and then make up your minde of what you are going to believe.
you say"i dont believe in fairy tales"...
How much closer to a fairy tale can you get than having nothing to start off with, somehow out of this nothing there was a huge explosion, after billions of years they formed to planets, after some more years somehow there became life, you simply can't get anything more "fairy tale" than that.
Let me ask you one simple question. What provided the ingredients to the big bang, what was before the big bang. There can't be a explosion out of nothing ???

peter, micro evolution becomes macro evolution.. micro evolution IS evolution. You want to believe that evolution happens on some grand scale.. it does not. Evolution is nothing more than a genetic anomole carried from parent to offspring that happens to survive and breed again and again.

The enfluenza virus is a wonderful example of evolution. The reason we cant get rid of it is because each colonies offspring shoots many variants. When we hit it with anti-virals and such, the antivirals are only geared twards certain genetic anomales. Every year scientists take that year's known genomes and put them into the vaccine you get at the start of the flu season. But yet the flu never dies.. why? because certain flu strains are immune to everything that we have thrown at it and by the time we find what kills that strain, it has already evolved into a dozen other things.

that IS evolution. Evolution is the genetic anomoles that are passed and survive long enough to be passed again.

Sicle cell anemia is another beneficial piece of evolution. Its a painful disease but it also protects people from malaria, which is why the disease is only found in african americans... malaria nearly wiped out much of africa a long time ago.. many of those that survived, survived because they had sicle cell which doesnt allow malaria to do its magic in the blood.

again, evolution.

that is exactly how man has survived so long. minor genetic anomoles that under one circumstance present as a disease, and under another circumstance present as an immunity factor.

peter thats because you are trying to find a smoking gun.. a magic jump. truth is, there isnt one.. it happens over time. micro IS macro if you take 100 generations of humans, you can tell genetic differences from the start to the beginning.. if you zoom out to 1000 generations then you are looking at new species.. if you zoom in to 5 generations you barely see any difference.

im at work so i cant look up the specifics.. but you can!

basically as they have found atoms that are smaller than atoms, quarks, quazars, and all sorts of other items they began to understand different energies better and have a more well though theory than the big bang. its still.. big bang like, but with a lot more understanding now.

also there was an article in.. wired i think.. the other day where they have all but proved the existance of the edge of the universe where it intersects with another.

I already studied the specifics a long time ago, and I keep up from day to day with the preprints coming from ArXiv and SPIRES; I just wanted to hear it from you...

Atoms smaller than atoms? Understand "different" energies better? More "well thought" theory than the Big Bang, but still "Big Bang like"? Alright, you really have just told me nothing useful...

Proved the existence of the "edge" of the universe where it "intersects with another"? You read way too much into that article... they have not "proved" anything... they have hypothesized that it is that way, and what they have "seen" causes them to get excited and think that they CAN prove it, but it is not direct proof. The article hypes up the idea so that the average reader will excitedly read it and think that it is all but proven already.

Be more careful of where you get information, and how you read it.

and i said "all but proved". :) as in not proved but getting close.

all science is is 95% theories and only a few "laws" which even the laws have changed or been broken over time. nothing is ever 100%.

The only way we will ever know if those spots are truely the end of the universe is to send something right through them and have them continue to transmit data.. we are eons from that type of technology and even further away by far from an answer just by the distance that would need to be traveled.

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 links.

And here is a very detailed video of the footprints.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v​=dWe3cteDuBcbr /> 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 !

Second link... has been removed from YouTube. First of all, seriously? A YouTube video is your evidence? Do you know how often YouTube videos are faked? The video is gone now, anyway, so I can't even find out if it was real or faked. A non-answer... again...

The rest of what you have said I cannot confirm anywhere, and have never heard mentioned before either, except by you. I cannot confirm or deny anything you have just said, and therefore, the answer is null. You have proved absolutely nothing except that you are not very careful about where you get information and which information you are willing to accept as fact without asking questions.

the second link the youtube video is about a professor giving a lecture so it is valid.

ok, i looked at your picture on the "creationism is real" page.. lololol

1) because they did an xray of it doesnt prove any authenticity. an Xray is not a timestamp, nor has it ever been.

2) find me a human that has that exact footprint. from the looks of it the big to was elongated and curled in, hense the deeper depression. look at the length of those toes and how they are formed at the foot.

IF and this is a big IF, this is somehow authentic.. which its not, that is not a modern human's footprint. Thats my take on it. humanoid at best, but not human. congrats peter, you may have just proved evolution...l lololololol

oh, except for the fact, that thats the worst dino impression ive ever seen. its nearly flat with no signs o weight impressions in it where the dino would have leaned as the dino was ambulating as well as the fact that foot print is extreeeeeeeemley well preserved for how old it SHOULD be.. lol



that video that you keep posting.. NONE of the tracks they are showing look so clear and concise. That should raise a flag to you.. lol.

"and he bulldozed 6 layers deep and magically uncovered many human foot prints". so.. he bulldozed without hurting those foot prints huh? lol.

its also amazing that those footprints cross over each other without ever touching.. infact the dinosaur tracks perfectly "leap" over the human tracks if you look at the picture with all the trails in it.
also, if it was a dinosaur, by looking at the picture, it must have been 2 legged, not 4.. there isnt enough footprints for a 4 legged animal. if it was a 2 legged dinosaur it had a tail.. why is there no tail marks? lots and lots of unanswered questions by those "footprints" peter. only a fool would take that at face value as its being presented. Most humans also invented foot coverings of some sort to protect their feet from barbs and such. even this guy makes mention of the fact that human tracks that show toes are a rarity.



your making your case worse, not better.

also, i forgot to mention, look at the depth of those tracks. that dinosaur must have been anorexic because the depth is nearly the same as the human tracks. more weight = deeper prints.

my guess? a guy walking around with funny shoes on.

Now that you arguments are bust, how about trying to figure out how we see so many galaxies that we do ?

As you know galaxies wind themselves up over time, thus the galaxies would not be recognizable over a period of time.

Galaxies, like our own Milky Way. We’ve observed that they rotate. The stars on the inside are moving much faster than those on the outside. If our galaxy – or others – were more than a few hundred million years old, they should be discs of featureless stars. But instead we still have very distinct arms. In an old-age model, the Milky Way should be at least 10 billion years old. A few hundred million years falls orders of magnitude below the time the old-earth theory needs. This upper limit destroys the age needed. But it’s not a problem for us; 6,000 years falls easily under the upper limit of hundreds of millions of years. We don’t know how wound-up our galaxy was when it began. No problem.

And what did Dr. Morris get his Ph.D. in, Pete?

Alright I'm getting impatient...

If you do not want to spoil the suspense, then you may stand upside-down with your head in a bucket full of piranha fish... otherwise, I am typing the answer to my last question below:

Dr. Morris has a Ph.D. in Geological Engineering.

So, if you wanted to find out about something going on in the Milky Way galaxy or somewhere else in space, who do you ask about it? A geologist? Think about it...

It is also interesting to note that Dr. Morris, after receiving his Ph.D. in 1980, was a Professor of Geology at the University of Oklahoma until 1996... when he became... you guessed it! A Creationist! After initially slamming the "evidence" from Pete's beloved "Paluxy River" site as controversial and ambiguous, Dr. Morris made an overnight "silent conversion" to Creationism, resigning from his professorship at the University of Oklahoma, after receiving a hefty sum from his retiring father, Henry Morris, at the same time.

Who was Henry Morris? The very "father" of Creationism, himself! So, Dr. John Morris left his post at the U of O to begin supporting creationism at the same exact time that his father, a founder of the Institute for Creation Research, retired from being the president of that organization. And, you guessed it... Dr. Morris, in 1996, became the new president of the I for CR! The creationists "bought" the scholar son of their beloved founder in an act of sublime cronyism...

"As you know..."

Ummm... do we? You assume that everyone "knows" these supposed "facts" you spit out on here...

"... galaxies wind themselves up over time, thus the galaxies would not be recognizable over a period of time."

Bulls***! Read "The Trouble With Physics: the Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next?" by Dr. Lee Smolin (whose credentials are real and verifiable, and has his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Harvard University!). Galaxies do NOT "wind themselves up" over time... in fact, it has been found that galaxies rotate quickly at their center, slow down a little as you move out from the center, but then go FASTER again as you approach their edge! Ever heard of the "Dark Matter" question? Our galaxy would have to have about 60 times its visible mass to account for the rotation speed of its outer arms! And, just in case you are about to say that this is because of God Himself slapping the edge of our galaxy with His Hand every time we pass by (like some little kids like to do with bicycle wheels...), there actually appears to be an empirical explanation in the data... the "evidence" (a.k.a. actual data from measurement and observation) suggests that long-range gravity in deep-space consistently reaches a minimal acceleration level in the interstellar space between galaxies... a predictable magnitude that appears to be the same (a constant...) throughout intergalactic space. So, along with the "Dark Matter", we appear to have "Dark Energy" as well. Do we have all the answers? Not yet, but we don't need to fill it in with some sort of magical explanation and write it off as solved, either.

Yeah, Pete, you may think I'm the one telling fairy tales now, because Dr. Morris told you that galaxies "wind themselves up" and that apparently 6,000 years is a better fit to a "100 million year limit" than 10 billion years is... when any statistics major could tell you that is not the case, as these things are compared in orders-of-magnitude... but what you are trying to tell us about how you "believe" things work is, at best, no less of a fairy tale.
