Slightly bigger and nearly 2x bigger aren't really the same thing. Sure some people may jump on it, but I think it would by in large be a very niche product, like a Mac Pro.

how is that different from all the retail stores putting up a vacation blackout from at least Black Friday to the day after Christmas, if not more

I think it'll be done when it's done. If that happens to be Jobs's Birthday so be it but they won't be aiming for that.

11 month release cycle for iPad makes sense.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Lets see, new iPads, little iPads, big iPads, stevejobs bad, steve jobs good, america good, europe bad, europe good america good, hitler bad hitler good, hitler bad poster bad...

great thread everyone. Covered it all in 206 comments.


Since we're veering, happy amalgamated pantheistic winter solstice celebration! ...imported from egypt, scattered and mutated, sloppily reunited by the Ceasars and pinned on a drifting Dec 25th, then rebranded as part of the official Roman religion by the Council of Nicaea in 325AD, spread by Constantines bloodthirsty soldiers for another 1200 years, until Pope Gregory sorted it out in his his "accurate enough" (if not a little shortsighted) Super Happy Friends Forever Calendar, which we still use today out of sheer complacency. It's been a long two days of dedicating feasts of abundance, gathering around a decorated tree, a symbol of life persevering through the cold dead winter, the midnight mass to celebrate the night after which days and light and warmth grow longer, the ordained giving of gifts to the poor and downtrodden, telling stories of St Nicholas/Santa Klaus, the magical elves of the north, and waiting for Odins 8 legged reindeer-pulled chariot to streak across the sky delivering sweet treats to the kids who left out sweets for his steed.... a wholesome, traditional, american "christmas".

Well, been away from macroumors for a few months until the last few days and I see a normal post has been hijacked by folks having political auguments and auguments over food

And it used to be a usefull site!

Anyway, many people automatically just buy the next model in line regardless of release dates. You usually get a good resale price on apple products.

Oh wait, the last bit should have gone onto the "buy now or wait post" nevermind!

I want the iPad 3 but as soon as I buy it... the iPad 4 and then the iPad 5 rumor mill will start.

I don't want to let go of my original iPad 1 for some reason.

Do I really need the iPad 3 though? Well, it'd be nice to have the latest and greatest.

Don't sacrifice quality or performance for some target date. Would rather ensure that all works properly, consistently, over long term than having something come out early. So if it means an extra couple weeks / months, then so be it.

I just tend to upgrade each year regardless.....i sell my "older" model usually on ebay. A bit like buying a car then part ex-ing it every year.....works for me. I usually get a decent price so between buying the ipad and iphone updates i usually spend about 300 a year out of my own pocket, not bad really!

I hope this story isn't true. I don't want to see another Playbook or Touchpad type of product that could've been brilliant but ends up tarnishing the company's reputation. They just need to bring it to market when it is perfected. That would be the best way to honor Steve Jobs.

Steve is gone but Apple is not going to bring out garbage unless they want their stock to drop like a rock. Any big mistake and people will freak.

Couldn't agree more. Exactly what I do and it works.

New models every year together with all the exitement of the launches and not a huge investment.

complete and utter crap eh, I guess you haven't seen this:
