*Sigh* Your quips get old. I say it's happening because there's been far too much evidence that it is. I don't need to be a damn fortune-teller. Just being attentive to the signs, and using some common sense. Anyway, history will decide who's right, and we'll find out soon enough. And I expect at least an apology if you're wrong, as well as many other people on this forum, because I believe we sincerely deserve it after all you've posted about the matter.
PS- The existence of the 11" Macbook Air completely destroys your premise of why a smaller ipad wouldnt be made. The smaller Air is not better at anything, it's simply smaller, lighter, and cheaper. For some, including me, the screensize is too small and cramped for a desktop OS. However, Apple made the decision to create it because they believed that the niche was big enough to fill. I'm not pat of that niche. I wouldn't buy it. But that doesn't mean I believe Apple shouldn't have made it. The iPad scenario is IDENTICAL. The niche it would fill is much larger than that of the 11" Air, not to mention being potentially a MUCH more popular product. Your arguments have no legs to stand on based on Apple's history.
