Just an exciting thought

Keep smokin'

All you have to do is watch the twitter spam on any day to see people waiting for the stock to nosedive. Apple isn't netflix, amazon or google. It has more in common with luxury brands than electronics. The only time Apple was even slightly affected by disruptions in the supply chain was with the Thailand flooding, and Apple is perfectly capable of absorbing those costs where as HP, Dell, etc aren't because they have such thin margins.

put your fingers on your iPad close to app icon and you will see

Yeah, the resolution of the screen, the bevel, the edges, etc. Pure s3x.

There's definitely something different to it, even if subtle. There will be a slight variation in form factor. What exactly, we'll have to see. In any case the desire, insanity and scalping will be unprecedented in terms of non-phone gadgetry.

I don't care it looks the same as the iPad 2 it's a great design. The same with iPhone 4s using the iPhone 4 design is beautiful. What matters after that it's what is inside...

Apple TV box v.3(HD maybe even cheaper) and iPad 3

What do you think the chances of iTunes LP finally being available on iPad are? Minimum iTunes LP requirements are 1280x800, so the resolution of the iPad will now more than meet that.

I for one would love to see this happen.

Well he could be including the sale of his iPad as the "profit" but either way, I'm pretty sure he just means he will have money left over.

What about tactile response? Maybe that's what the "touch" part is about. It would be Apple ingenuity to bring out something new.

How's that even possible? It's glass we're talking about here.

It's blatantly obvious what's going on here. "We have something you really have to see. And touch"

Don't get thrown off by the period and starting a new sentence with "And". Its really the same sentence. They are saying you HAVE to see (retina screen) and (have to) touch. The home button is gone therefore you have to touch (not press, meaning no more home button.)

Yeah, Apple is using the same sentence structure that they have used for every product they make for the past five years. There's literally absolutely nothing to read into this.

Tiny vibrations under the screen could provide a tactile response. I was just thinking of some new think that they will bring. It's never just a simple upgrade.

If this tech becomes viable I think under the bezel of a tablet is probably the most likely place it would arrive.

Apple is surely very clever in design genius and indeed with visual inlay. My personal analysis is as follows:

Wednesday = 9 char & date = 7 -> (9.7 inches)
Calendar = 8 char -> (8MP Camera).

Thus, the new iPad will still be 9.7 inches but with new 8MP Camera.

Another non-standard grammatical compliant sentences:

"We have something you really have to see." = 8 Words which also may signify 8MP Camera. (The word "see" relates to vision just as camera gives us both static & dynamic vision to see, thus it may refers to Camera in my opinion.)

"And touch." Two words and the word touch may refer to "Screen" and the word "And" in Arithmetic means "Multiply" -> I may infer that the screen is no doubt double in resolution.

What do you think?

Apple showed everyone, and no one saw it...



This is not a lighting / photoshopping error, silver colored aluminium will never look this black, Apple would never make such a mistake.

And touch.

Hmm, maybe it isn't made in aluminium, but something that is nice and light to touch and hold?

Best regards

You didn't really need your own thread about that, but I've already debunked this there.
