Rumor is that Apple is announcing the iPad 3, or iPad HD, today.

I hope it lives up to this concept video!

If the iPad 3 did those things, I wouldn't care (as much) how many Chinese workers jumped to their deaths.

Edit: OK, that's crude. Let me just say that it would be really, really cool and I'd be OK with them being really depressed over their labor conditions.

Edit again: Sorry Tom!

Edit one more time: But Tom, you know you would get one too. Even if you had to buy it at Freakin' WalMart.

i am quite interested... however, i am interested from the point of view of a stock holder... I bought aapl, 6 months before the first iphone came out @ 100$ a share... so far it has been one of my best investments... And they say "never put all of your eggs in one basket"... well i did....


However, with that being said... i am more anxious about the new Axiom speaker than the ipad, since i will be a possible buyer of the new speaker, where i have no intention of buying the new ipad.....


P.S. i just watched the video, the snap video would be pretty cool. However, i think the holographic projection is a bit over the top as well as the projected interface... Companies are working on projected interfaces, but i think that will be a few generations down the road... However!, i could be wrong....

Apple/Foxconn hang nets so they can't jump. They're so caring.

Here's the actual Apple Video.

Amazing display resolution, faster processor, 4G, new iLife apps.

I'm not unhappy with the resolution on my iPad2, and don't see anything else really "revolutionary" here. I don't feel a burning need to take and edit photos on the same device since it is inevitably a compromise on both tasks.

It does raise the bar, though.

And, Mark, no.

There is nothing revolutionary about the new iPad. Higher screen resolution is the biggest talking point, but it's hardly innovative.

There will probably be just marginal updates with the upcoming android tablets like the iPad.

However, this technology below I would call revolutionary for a tablet if it does ever hit the market.

The innovation is that grandmas squeal with delight when they can do the same things on the iPad their grandchildren have been doing on computers for years. It's about accessibility and ease of use, *not* specs, people.

This should be the marketing campaign of the Bose Acoustimass home theater system.

This is why Amar Bose and Steve Jobs are filthy rich and good for them.

I don't think Steve has any money any more, nor needs it.
