That is a wrong assumption you're using. Maybe there are only 33 million fanboys as people will replace 1 with 2 and then with 3...


What I would find interesting to know, how many first-buyers are there? (so, people that don't already own a tablet and people that do have an android tablet)

Because that would show how much, if any, actual growth there is in Apple's share of the market. There is a significant difference between 3 million new customers and 3 million current customers who are just upgrading. Especially when you add in the app store since the latter won't be buying too many new items... (I'm betting the split is around 2.5 million upgraders and 500k new customers, at best, due to the lack of mainstream hype this time around)

I cooked eggs on my mine this morning. Plan on baking a pizza tonight on it.

I'm trying to figure out your point. Why you hate apple or even care? I really don't understand. iPad doesn't have any more problems than any other tablet. I'm sure you could find just as many if not more articles about problems with other tablets. So why do you feel inclined to only post iPad or apple articles? Clearly you have some beef with them. If not, then you would equally post articles regarding other tablets. You're just trolling now.

Btw. I use it all day long & still don't have any heating problems with it.

You started this thread with the title, New iPad has sold 3 million devices. obsessed2 simply threw in a couple of links to articles that question whether overheating problems will slow down sales. It's a legitimate question and on-topic. There's no need for name calling.

Same here, I've been paying close attention and not seeing ANY heating problems. I wonder what it takes to make it heat up.

I mean, besides throwing it in the oven.

I was going to put mind in the oven & use the heat to bake bread. Then I'm going to feed the world with that bread. It'll be magical & resolutionary bread.

And give their 1 &2s to someone else - family, friend or sell - whatever the case, the earlier purchases don't suddenly evaporate so your assumption on replacement (gives constant numbers) is even more flawed... actual result is that new models increase user base even if being bought as replacement for currently owned...
