Yeah but didn't they say the same thing last year and it never happened? That apple was going to release a revise new iPad for the up coming holidays.

LOL, the AppleInsider homepage would have two posts and the forum would look like a ghost town.
But heck, that's a wonderful idea. It would definitely improve the signal-to-noise ratio around here!
Actually, it's more realistic to look at AppleInsider, MacRumors, etc. as science fiction blogs here in 2012. The rumor quality has degraded so much and the amount of commentary by people who have a very tenuous grasp on reality has skyrocketed. If you look at it that way, this site is far more entertaining than Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, whatever.

Amazing how my iPad that I've owned since launch day has never 'overheated', nor that of anyone I know, contrary to sensationalist internet reports that this is a normal occurrence and a glaring hardware issue.

The batteries and circuitry that power them certainly do.
Geez must be a slow news day to keep quoting DigiTimes. What is the accuracy rate of their so-called informed sources ? 5% ?
Try running the Navigon navigation app with 3D terrain rendering. I did last weekend with my "New" iPad in a BookBook case.....it overheated, popped up the thermal warning message and automatically shutdown. There is (or can be) an overheating problem, but it can just as easily be caused by crappy software programming as it can be by Apple's hardware design.
