+ - bentgate, a new issue Phone 6 users?

Submitted by mrspoonsi
mrspoonsi (2955715) writes "First, there was 'Antennagate', as iPhone 4 users found a noticeable drop in signal strength when touching the lower-left corner of their handset, leading Apple to tell its customers that they were holding the device the wrong way. Then came 'Scuffgate', as iPhone 5 users complained that it was all too easy to scratch that device's aluminium bodywork. Now, with the launch of Apple's latest handsets, comes 'Bentgate'. A handful of users — so far, at least — have complained that their iPhone 6 Plus handsets are 'bending', without significant force being exerted upon them. Several of these reports have come from users on the MacRumors forums. One user, 'hanzoh', said that his handset had been in his front trouser pocket for much of the day, which involved sitting while on a long drive and at a wedding, where he also danced. By the end of the day, when he placed his 6 Plus on his coffee table, he noticed that the device had bent slightly towards the top."

Randi's trick for disproving psychic phenomena is blind and double-blind testing.

Randi's trick is convincing you that that's what he does.

How he gets away with his nonsense when all his followers are (admittedly, self-described) skeptics is beyond me.

Speaking of ... why isn't he in jail? Why hasn't Pena been deported?

Yahweh, of course.

Science is not any single geometry, and so has no fundamental set of definitional axioms.

Are you sure about that? Hume would disagree with you ... along with every educated person.

those don't exhaust the space of possible science

If you think that the scope of science is unbounded, you're very much alone. The limits and scope of science have been well understood for centuries.

The scope of science is unlimited, and it is the only way of creating knowledge.

Science isn't the end of epistemology. The scope and limits of science are well known. Congratulations, you've not only failed basic science, you've turned it in to a religion.

Because science is Bayesian

Oh, you're one of those. Never mind, you're beyond help.
