    The article is here:



    Apple’s Ability to Produce iPad 2s



    I thought I was way out there -- when I predicted 60 million iPads in CY 2011 (All versions).



    We're looking at 40 million iPad 2 (excluding iPad 1) tops, especially with the Japanese situation. I know people are saying, well, this and that components are not affected, but there's a heck of a lot of rerouting and adjustments still to be made in Greater China and Japan across the board.



    Apple could easily sell through 3 million iPad 2s a month, it is probably shooting for this. That puts it at 36 million max for the year. If you take it that they are still producing iPad 1s at 1 million a month for a few months for all the non-iPad 2 countries, then we're looking at 50 million iPads total in CY 2011 for all versions.



    Anything beyond 50 million just doesn't sound right. My 2 cents. Those blog articles are well, nothing captivating anyway from what little I've read.

    Vegans will be leaving OS X in their droves! ;-)

    Why does this article and everyone else here refer to this as iCal 4.0 when I'm running OS X 10.6.7 and my iCal version is 4.0.4?

I can't fathom Jonathon Ive signing off on such a thing, but guess it's not really his purview.



    Why does everything have to look cold and plain? This isn't minority report.

    I think this is horrible look and feel for desktop or any computer app. Come on, we don't use wall calendars any more exactly because we have computers everywhere. It's just silly and gimmicky to do this and I'm honestly surprised Apple would do this.

    But why hasn't the Stickies app in Mac OS X been re-named to Notes? Also, could someone please clarify for me what the number badge looks like in Lion? I forgot what it's called but you like when you get new email in Mail or a new IM in iChat it has a number in the upper right hand corner? I wonder if that is unified with the iOS look to it.

    1) The badges still look different between Mac OS and iOS. I didn?t even know they were different until made mention of it.



    2) Stickies are a different app from Notes. Stickies backs up to MobileMe, but is not accessible or synced to iDevices. In SL and Lion Notes are part of Mail.app and they auto sync between iDevices? albeit with frequent errors.



    3) It would be nice if you could have Notes show up in Stickies but I doubt we?ll see that happen any time soon.

    You would think the badges would look the same. Right? I mean if they are trying to unify the UI.



    I understand what you're saying about Notes and Mail. I get notes I wrote on my iPhone all the time in Mail.app

    That isn't what modern is today. Try reading a copy of Dwell or Wallpaper or Metropolis.

    Doesn't April Fools end at lunchtime or is that some sort of unwritten rule?

    Dislike the 'leather' look -- it's not a desktop calendar, so why would you make it look like one? I love eye candy, but I don't like software to mimic what it is not.

    So is Apple ever going to improve the To Do List? It totally lacks functionality if you compare it with other 3rd party task app, and worst of all it's pretty useless because it can't sync with the iPhone. I still have to rely on 3rd party paid-apps like Things and sync service like ToodleDo to handle all my tasks. It's a shame that Apple hasn't improved much on their productivity app for business users.



    It baffles me though, that all the comments thus far is about the leather UI. Am I the only person in this forum who cares about productivity?

    Check out the Calendar menu of your current iCal.app

    Graphic designers hate colorful adornments to windows because they detract from the designs they are working on.

    Oh, you mean just like in the current version?

    Great, this would go great with my faux leather case for my Macbook Pro And to wear a leather jacket and pants just to piss off those vegans for Fools Day.

    There a lot of people out there who don't like leather (not me though, I've even got a leather bed ), but anyway there are such people and they'll probably not appreciate using iCal with a leather look. Such people can often be found wearing bright woolly jumpers, sandals and Greenpeace badges...
