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.

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!!

"AppleSpeculator - macrumors newbie"...obviously some android d*ck rider who created an account here just to talk smack about Apple.

I on the other hand cannot wait for this update, Apple has a lot of cool things up their sleeves.
