I think they're releasing this today because they know how much of a failure the "new iPad" will be. They're trying to take the focus away from the terrible upgraded iPad.

I really hope that's sarcasm.

Yup, I'm sure their sales figures will bear you out.

I'm sure they'll only sell 3 or 4 new iPads.

Yup.

For sure.

The iPad is an awful tablet and a poor experience compared to the Mac. I love MAC OS X, it's beautiful, intuitive and powerful something which iOS is not!!

Obvious troll is obvious......
