I'm assuming that the ipad 3 will need a serious performance boost to handle the increased retina resolution and the fact that the Sony PS Vita (which is not really a direct competitor) will be shipping with it's standard quad-core in the USA in early 2012.
Can we assume the ipad 3 will launch this spring with a retina screen and a quad-core A6?
Bono should have been passing these things out for free at concerts considering the HP bailed out Bono's Elevation Partners huge stake in Palm when it tanked a few years back.

The vast majority of new jobs and new (previously non-existing) opportunites come from small independent companies.

Steve Jobs will kill off the optical drive long before DVD crunching will ever be needed. Whatever short comings the A6 will have (and I'm sure there will be plenty) I think icloud could evolve into something that fills in the (heavy lifting) gaps.
