    Prepare for fanboys to create some sort of otherworldly mathematical concept that would somehow explain how 9.3 and 9.5mm is exactly the same, in 3...2...1...

    \o/.....Yes the .2mm is a layer of shielding/reflector that reflects the sun to other plaints, doing this it will be able to bring stability and life to other cold plaints far far away in the galaxy due to the weather climate it creates. Also word has it that the "Zerg" race took life 2 clicks away from Planet earth....

    Ps.. The shielding will protect you from alien invasion.

    The wonders of .2mm thickness!!

    I think this is most likely a manufacturing mistake. It was intended to be the same size but someone obviously fell asleep at the quality control area.

    From context I'm guessing planets, although paint and plant are a close second.

    As far as the denial goes, Apple is conducting research to see whether "old Jedi mind tricks" work across the internet. So far they're not successful.

    A better answer would have been: "You're looking at it wrong."

    These are not the specifications you're looking for. *waves hand slowly in front of monitor*

    I think he meant that 'because he says it is not thicker than the black iphone, therefore, it is', remember corporations are not democracies (well this is contentious even in real world) they are dictatorships; where well man at the top is always right.

    I know, you would think the black iPhone would be thicker than the white iPhone.

    Why is it that when someone from Apple speaks (especially after touting their superior vision) I always feel as if I need to take a shower?

    Wouldn't be news if they didn't say the tech reports lied. They are feeding the hate.

    In related news:
    Apple just announced the new iPad 3, when asked to comment why the specifications of the new device are exactly the same as the old one Mr. Jobs replied: Device specifications are to technical for most of our users and we decided not to change them to make the device more accessible for iPad 2 users. Still this is a whole new device because we called it iPad 3 and not iPad 2.

    Declaimer: This is not a really news story although it does sound like something that Apple would do! :)

    Reporter: Look, this iPhone 4 disconnects when you just touch this point right here.
    Apple: No it doesn't, you're just holding it wrong.

    Reporter: Look, all of this location tracking information is stored in the iPhone.
    Apple: No it's not. But an update will take care of the thing it's not doing.

    Reporter: Look, the new white iPhone 4 is obviously thicker than the original version.
    Apple: Not it isn't, you're measuring it wrong or something.

    Ever get the feeling that Apple thinks they are Jedi and can just mind trick the world into believing what they want us to, rather than believing actual physical evidence to the contrary?
