    I've got to say Tipb has lost any shred of journalistic integrity it once had. It wasn't so much that you reposted every whisper of the iPad 3 on your page whenever it made the rounds, it was this thread and Rene's posts in story comments about how it was a sure thing, so sure you would stake your reputation on it without disclosing your sources.

    Now it's time to eat crow. You were dead wrong. You spoke in absolutes and got burned for it. You really think your readers should take you for more than a quirky iPhone 4 case review site? Then why don't you disclose the number of iPad 3 related articles you've posted this season and the amount of hits and ad dollars it's generated you?

    You fooled us once sure, but be assured when you try this again next year your going to hit a wall of resistance right off the bat.
    I disagree with you here... TiPb/Jeremy kept us informed of every new piece of info that came out about the iPad 3, including posting a news story on the front page when it was known that the Oct. release was canceled till the Spring. I realize you are probably disappointed as a lot of us are by this delay, but pointing fingers won't help it come out any sooner. Apple is the one who has the final say in when their product is going to come out and if something wasn't right with the retina display on the iPad 3, I think Apple did the right thing in delaying the release of it so they could get it right the first time. I can't speak for others, however, I'm still coming to TiPb for all my iOS related news stories. I first read about the delay of the iPad 3 right here, so yes, TiPb got it right!

    I will continue you visit tipb as they are always quick to post new stories and offer their opinion. I am disappointed by the amount of regurgitated iPad 3 stories over the past few months with new info few and far between.

    What really bothers me was postering by tipb's writers and moderators on the certainty of the iPad 3 release in order to justify the coverage. I knew the day tipb would have to recant their claims was coming soon, I kept that in mind and made sure to call those people out the time came.

    I know I sound like a hater but browse the forums, I just read a post from Garz saying the 'iPad is coming this fall whether you like it or not.'

    Jeremy says it again and again following it up by 'follow me on twitter'

    You've got to be kidding me

    Rene I don't have to much beef with, I just feel he should be more forthcoming and transparent with his reporting.

    I never questioned the info regarding his source concerning dates or what's being worked on. Just the reasoning and certainty of a fall ipad release.

    What's rubbed me the wrong way in this thread is basically how unfriendly it got. If you disagreed and offered your own reasons, you got hit quickly by others. "I guess you'll still be trying to convince yourself in October while we're playing with ipad 3's" LOL I guess not.

    "No, your reasons are wrong..my source said its because of this and this. These are the real reasons. Anything else is pure garbage"

    And this of course is nonsense. Especially the statement that Verizon caused Apple to release the ipad 2 and caused the iphone 5 to be launched in the fall. Apple would never let another company dictate it's strategy. The source may know dates or what is being worked on but I would question if he knows much else.

    If you understand anything about apple, it's that Apple prefers being in control. That its strategy is marketing driven. That software trumps hardware.

    My first instinct upon hearing the iphone would launch in the fall is that it totally had to do with iOS 5. (or iCloud or perhaps both). This has not changed. What makes sense to me is that knowing this, it provided Apple an opportunity to give Verizon an iphone even earlier than intended and still have time for a white iphone launch. It also provides an opportunity to move to a better release time..closer to the holiday season especially with decreasing ipod sales currently taking that prime slot.

    The ipad 3 had legs because iOS 5 is a huge marketing opportunity. But it's not essential yet (to launch an ipad around it) because the retina screen still figures to be a huge draw on its own. The ipad 2 is selling lights out. And Apple has enough to market this fall while leaving something for later.

    No offense. But i'd rather speculate based on apple's history which as usual, proved to be more useful and accurate. Not based on what some nameless source has to say or spins things.

    Some of you people are hysterical. How many times do I have to go over this - things change, get over it.

    Listen you can say whatever you want to say or believe what you want to believe. You and others who have posted recently are the reason I will not be sharing any other information I get from the fruit company. Trust me I gain nothing from passing information to others here. But that is over now as well as this thread.

    Thread closed.

    *and just to be clear about this threads closing - no point of going back and forth between those who don't believe what I've posted and those who do. Really nothing more to discuss.
