    The whole iPad 3 thing is a scam.

    I thought the iPad 3/New iPad has this super awesome hi-res screen. Now based on the article, potentially only a seasoned iPad user would notice the difference between the super awesome hi-res screen and the iPad 2 screen. If that's the case then what's the big hoohaa over this magical super awesome hi-res screen?

    I'm pretty sure most people would be able to see the difference. Well, I hope so!

    Did MyBB do a similar article on the iPhone 4 versus the iPhone 4S? The boxes are different, but I'm sure there's some scammers selling the 4 in a 4S box somewhere....

    The iPad2 boxes have the iCloud logo on them too, those that shipped after IOS5

    As for not being able to see the difference, errr, what's up with MyBB people? Not only are you the only guys calling it the iPad3 (the rest of the world calling it the new iPad as Apple does) but now you cannot see a retina display? Maybe you need to go to an optometrist for a check up.

    If you are dumb enough to get scammed into buying a iPad 2 thinking its the new iPad you probably shouldn't be buying one in the first place

    Well, perhaps MyBB needs to define their audience. Most forumites will probably be able to spot a fake third generation iPad. If the audience is the guy who typed "iPad 3 scam" in Google and then got to the page and learns something, well, then he/she is probably a noob and will hopefully learn something and stay a while.

    This is the first article of its type that I've seen that warns people of the subtle differences between the iPad 2 and the new one - so at least MyBB is creating new content.

    Don't get me wrong, the Retina display is amazing (though not amazing enough to force me to upgrade).

    The issue is one of frame of reference. If the devices aren't side-by-side I'm not convinced you would immediately notice. You would notice when you go back to your old iPad, though.

    Nope! If there is a scam it'll have to be a little more creative because the iPhone 4S box at least says "iPhone 4S" on the side, if memory serves.

    Apple could have avoided all this shyte if they just stopped being retarded d0uchebags, but no, that was too much to ask.
    If you wanna get laid, ask an Ancient Astronaut theorist. They always say yes.

    Uhm... it is being called the iPad3 all over the show... not just here... all over the interwebz... most are also adding a "whatever you want to call it". A lot of the sites are saying, nah, not much of a compelling iPad2 to iPad3 upgrade argument - rather wait for the iPad4 - but definitely go from iPad1 to iPad3.
