There may still be more to this. More testing would clear it up once and for all.

Not accepting advertising may remove one variable for bias but not all. They have fiercely held for many years they are the only unbiased mag of their type in the world and this lie has been seen through again.
As *jdb8167* has pointed out CR's scientific method is woefully inadequate. As this article points out so nicely, having other devices to compare the new iPad to changes the context of assertion altogether. Let's see how hot there other tablets get when their screens have this resolution and they run LTE, etc.
BTW, if anyone finds it too warm for whatever reason but likes the features *adapting to the situation* with a stand for certain activities is still an option.

Heat-gate is already gone. Youtube has only a couple of videos alleging heat issues. C|net has not revisited the issue since its initial report. Consumer Reports has not followed up yet. This article, however, will only serve to reignite this dying non-issue.

You can download a free Widget to do those kinds of conversions. (Fahrenheit to Celsius.) Whew! Jumped the snark on that one!

That is surely better than broading the own horizon. Quoting the Wikipedia:
Now that's some company to have!
