  they just did, didn't they?  Was the 4th generation iPad released to get the iPad on a fall release schedule, or was it just a minor speed bump style update needed to update the connector.  I could certainly see Apple doing two releases/year for both the iPad, one major update, one speed bump update.  There are a lot of competitors, they want the iPad to stay out in front.
this has to be the most overblown issue I've seen in a long time.  Every time I've used it, the new Maps app works great.  Far better than the old Google app. 
The web site still says available november for the 21" model and december for the 30" model.  Of course it doesn't actually let you order either of them.  We need two of the 21" iMacs, so hopefully this is just an unfounded rumor.   I have a hard time believing they can't build any to ship in november, but the month is already half over.
At work we need two new 21" iMacs.  We delayed the purchase slightly because the new models were being released.  It's almost 3 weeks now since they were announced and you still can't even preorder them anywhere, which is pretty surprising.  Has anyone heard anything other than "available in november"?
  a must for who?   100 million people get plenty done with ARM based iPads and their 2048-by-1536 display.  Why wouldn't' the A7 be powerful enough for a $799 11" MacBook Air, 8 hour battery, retina display, under 2 lbs?  No windows support, office or adobe.  And no thunderbolt.  But runs everything in the mac app store within a couple of months of launch.  Optional 4G LTE version.  Apple would sell millions of them.
  in most cases it would just be a recompile.   Certainly there are important exceptions, things like photoshop and office.  But for the most part apps already are built to support MacOS X on Intel and iOS on ARM.  And developers who know what they're doing don't write code that would care which CPU it ran on.   And Xcode already knows how to build binaries that support multiple CPU architectures.  Announce at WWDC and ship in the fall and 90% of shipping apps would...
  it's pretty much just a recompile to get those apps to work
why is the 9.7 inch iPad called a 10" tablet while the 7.9" iPad is called a 7" tablet?
  They didn't.  You can watch on a Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or AppleTV.  i.e. all of the devices apple's latest technology can be at both ends of the connection.   Am I reading too much into it to think they much think this is a pretty big event to pick it to bring back the live streaming
This whole thing is bizarre.  The new Maps app is my favorite feature of the new OS.  We just went out of town for the weekend and used it all of the time to find and get where we needed to go without the slightest hitch.  I've seen the pictures where the 3d satellite view has some glitches which has had zero impact on my use of the app.  Is there something else wrong because I don't see why that alone has caused all of this controversy.  A feature that isn't even in the...
