    At this point you should probably give up on it.

    Deal with it.

    At this point you should assume it's not coming out. If you want an iPhone 4, get the black one.

    And if you're feeling adventurous, you order the white parts and try to make one yourself.

    Black is very much a color. Black is actually the presence of ALL colors.

    White is the absence of color, so technically it's the one that's not a color.

    yeah, I think I waited long enough, I give up.

    I'm going back to the Apple Store today to re-buy the black iPhone.

    I'm still going to wait, if only based on the rumors going around that after Sept 30th Apple is going to introduce a new iPhone 4 with an antenna fix.

    Agreed. I'm pretty shocked that Apple still hasn't introduced the white iPhone.

    The iphone next June wouldn't be the 5 right? It should be the iPhone 4s or something. I was thinking I needed to get the iphone 4 at least by the end of this year so I could upgrade to the 5 in 2012.

    You mix colors together you will eventually get black. You can't mix anything with white to keep white. Therefore it is absence of color.

    That he was misquoted and the whole Model-T only came in black thing is an urban myth?

    1. Black is the absence of color (and is therefore not a color)
    Explanation:
    When there is no light, everything is black. Test this out by going into a photographic dark room. There are no photons of light. In other words, there are no photons of colors.
    2. White is the blending of all colors and is a color.
    Explanation:
    Light appears colorless or white. Sunlight is white light that is composed of all the colors of the spectrum. A rainbow is proof. You can't see the colors of sunlight except when atmospheric conditions bend the light rays and create a rainbow. You can also use a prism to demonstrate this.
    Fact: The sum of all the colors of light add up to white.

    You guys are just arguing about subtractive vs. additive color models...

    Inks and pigments are measured as subtractive color, and light is measured as additive color. If you mix a bunch of cyan, yellow, and magenta ink together, you'll approach black. If you mix red, green, and blue light, you'll approach white. Link.

    mrathee, way to post the half of the equation that supports only your side. Edit: I noticed that the link you posted has info about both additive and subtractive color theory. And it says that in subtractive color theory, black is a color.

    This is true... so long as you're working with an Additive Color system. Of course thats only half the story.

    The opposite is true for a Subtractive Color System. See here for more info.


    Please don't take a job as a paint mixer. :D
