In line with expectations, The Loop reports that Apple today sent out invitations for a media event scheduled for next week Wednesday, March 7. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern. The tagline on the invitation reads "We have something you really have to see. And touch."

Apple is of course expected to introduce the iPad 3 at the event, with an upgraded Apple TV set-top box also reportedly in the plans. Rumors have also suggested that Apple could show off a new high-definition audio format with "adaptive streaming" that could allow Apple's iCloud and iTunes Match services to send varying qualities of audio files to different devices depending on bandwidth and hardware requirements.

1. Everyone on MR is super hyped for the keynote.

2. Keynote is on and everyone is paying extra attention to the updates.

3. Keynote is over and a few comments of dissapointment are posted.

4. Full out "iPad 3 stinks" and "Apple is doomed" comments flood MR.

5. Heated arguments erupt with future iPad 3 owners defending their purchase and iPad 3 haters calling it a failure.

I love the invitation. The screen looks extremely crisp (retina?) :eek:


The screen looks pretty much like it's around 100 PPI to me...

Oh wait, that's because my monitor is running at 100 PPI. :rolleyes:
