It is called a correction which happens to grossly overpriced stocks. When speculators start to take interest in a stock volatility will result. As for doing something it is called selling more product than they ever have.

They can release as many new models as they like, as long as they don't abandon older models any sooner...
Well, yeah. And I see twice a year for tablets, too. But not yet. ARM isn't moving fast enough.
ARM would be very unwise to move any faster than it currently does. Releasing a new architecture of processors every six months would be a nightmare for its customers. It takes time and effort to support each new generation, especially for SoC designs.
Even Intel only ever releases a maximum of one new architecture each year. The current Sandy/Ivy Bridge architecture has been around two years.
A bit OT but it's 11pm Christmas Eve in Australia now, I wonder how many (many, many) people will be getting iPads in the morning?
Place your bets... will the App Store go down tomorrow?

1) You have been informed of and shown choices of physical and wireless options for transferring images from a camera to an iPad but instead of acknowledging that you are instead slinging insults?
I was mistaken on the lightning to SD reader- didnt know it existed. What the link was to was the 30-pin adapter version. And Wifi is absolutely no way to transfer a large amount of photos. At all.
2) So now it's not about having the capability but having something faster than wireless and yet their Lightning to SD Card Reader and Lightning to USB Adapter options aren't good enough for you? Seriously?
3) Yes, you can DSLRs with WiFi as well as memory cards that contain WiFi.
So now I have to buy the Canon 6D. That's it. Outside of that, you have to buy an adapter. Yes, there is the Eye Fi- but only in standard SD- no compact Flash. So you'd have to get that adapter too- which is buggy at best. Regardless, again, wifi isn't the option.
4) If you are a "professional" photographer you would already know what options are available and wouldn't be complaining about it on this forum.
first- I'm not. My wife is. 2nd- how would I know? We're talking about transferring to a freakin iPad- something no professional would do. So again- how would you know all options to transfer pictures to an iPad to edit?

iOS isn't that bad. Mac OS X however is in crisis. Apple simply just stopped optimising Mac OS X. :-(
But yeah, they should be optimising iOS too.. But I think it's time to put Mac OS X first for a while.

The iPad "4" is perfect - for reading AI forums .
Okay, which is why going to a 6-month update cycle is really stupid. They'll be releasing two devices with the same architecture, which doesn't have a whole lot of point.
See, you and I? We're a dying breed. People demand it get thinner because their hands can't manage the thickness now. People demand it get lighter because they're too weak to hold anything heavier than an iPad mini.
It's unfathomable. They'd rather have a single sheet of notepad paper than an entire college-ruled binder. And that metaphor extends beyond size to capability.
I believe this rumor. Apple is trying to be super aggressive with tablets. It isn't going to go a year without an update.
I agree. One of Steve Job's many axioms was. "To be successful in Tech you have to be ten years ahead of the competition."
At the time he said this, he thought Apple was about five years ahead.
I think this is one of the reasons Apple is so aggressive with the model updates. It certainly is widening the gap between the iPad and the other tablet makers. The Surface looks a mess...and their recent Surface commercial with all the "clicking" of the moving parts of the Surface is just plain nauseating.
I don't understand this comment. In the first place, the "way to get photos from your camera to the iPad" was invented with iPad 1.0, it's called a card reader and an SD card (with or without wi-fi). Secondly, you can already edit photos on an iPad with all the same features and functions as something like iPhoto or Aperture. iPhoto on the iPad has the exact same corrective capabilities as it's OS-X cousins.
As to which method is better, and which is faster, you'd have to ask a wedding photographer who's already switched, but in terms of being possible, it already is and has been for a while.
