    Apple are such dicks, they announced it RIGHT as Eric Schmidt went on stage at Mobile World Congress. Surely not a coincidence! http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/28/apple-ipad-event-confirmed-for-march-7th-in-san-francisco/ "We have something you really have to see, and touch!" http://www.macstories.net/news/apple-confirms-media-event-on-march-7/ Two interesting things about the invitation: First it appears to show a retina class iPad right on it. Second the invitation itself is actually shaped like an iPad, were it to have smaller bezels. Edit: Never mind that, was a bad crop, and the iPad on display clearly has the same bezels.

    How can you tell it's a retina?

    No pixel structure. Also, there is this theory: http://twitpic.com/8puvs3

    Wait, I thought you were supposed to buy on the rumor and sell on the news? http://www.cultofmac.com/149350/ipad-3-event-announcement-propels-apple-stock-to-new-high

    It may not net me the most money but it's the least hassle: I've accepted the Gazzelle offer of a $294 Amazon credit for my 16gb 3G ipad2. So it's lost half it's 640 value in a year, or you could say I rented an ipad2 3G for 340 a year. I have to have it sent in 30 days so I may be without a pad for a few if they don't ship as early as we've been led to believe. Had great success with my first iPad, expect smooth sailing here too.

    I doubt that my wife will want the new iPad since we are on our two year cycle for he iPhone now. We'll see.

    I'm just giving my iPad 1 to my kids and getting the iPad 3. I will buy the 64GB 3G if that is the biggest they offer. I have been jealous of my wife's iPad 2 so now I can hold the lead for a year. I'm sure I'll be buying the iPad 4 for my wife next year. :)

    I don't get what that graph represents.

    It's satire. It's saying PC sales peaked just prior to the day iPad 1 shipped and are going down exponentially on each iPad release cycle.
