And then there was Glassgate and a whole bunch of mini-gates that all amounted to, uh, let’s see, multiply by six… carry the two… and that gives us…
Let’s do it again!
This week alone has brought us Heatgate, LTEgate, and Linegate! Let’s meet the new gates!
You’re probably already familiar with Heatgate, as some owners of new iPads have noticed their devices seem to run warmer than previous iPads. Just how much warmer? Don’t worry,
Consumer Reports is on the case! And who else are you going to trust except the publication that refused to recommend the iPhone 4 despite the fact that you suckers kept buying them by the pallet?
Our finding that the new iPad can heat up to as much as 116 degrees Fahrenheit when plugged in and continually running a game has prompted widespread coverage and comments, as well as questions from consumers on our blog post, Facebook page, and via Twitter.
Thank god Consumer Report is on this, because you know you won’t get a minute of sleep until the magazine that your parents used to figure out which blender to buy weighed in on how hot the new iPad is. And when they say “hot” they really mean “warm.”
And here the Macalope thought 4G was consequence-free. To be fair, though, we all remember the Wall Street Journal article about Motorola Xoom owners who used up all their data after they waited months to send their tablets back for the two-week 4G upgrade hahahaha of course not.
Well, don’t get used to this last gate, because it’s already come and gone. Alas, poor Linegate! You left us too soon!
