    I guess there can be only two 'iPad' announcements.

    1. iPad sales figures (I could careless.)
    2. iPad OS 4.2 upgrade date (Will he let us know?)
    3. (sorry, no 7-inch iPad plans)

    Hopefully no iPad announcements (besides saying how great it has sold) are made. Same goes to iPod and iPhone...

    I hope it is focused on the Mac, for a change.

    It will be about the Mac, but there's always apple updates and he'll wanna tell everyone how great the company did in the 3rd quarter

    I'm hoping for some tie into iLife '11. Maybe GarageBand for iPad. Because that would be awesome to use iPad as a portable recording studio when you are just trying to test out an idea.

    I have 4Track on iPhone but GB would let you actually flesh out a song then you can just upload it back to your computer to finish it up...

    It could have loops (And they could even sell loop packs as an in app purchase!) and even an onscreen keyboard for doing some midi stuff.

    I think it would be awesome, but I doubt it will happen any time soon.

    This alone would get me to cough up $500 or more for an iPad. If it would enable a MIDI input driver for the Camera Connection Kit's USB port, that would be even better.

    But again, this is a Mac-centric event, so I'm not holding my breath in this regard.

    EDIT: On second thought, GarageBand for iPad could be rather limiting, as softsynths and effects are notorious CPU hogs. I don't know whether the A4 chip would be able to handle more than, say, four Software Instrument tracks at a time. Still, it may be worth it for field recording of vocals.

    I could care less ? If you ask in the interrogative instead of using the declarative that would be acceptable too as a sarcastic remark.

    Now if only we could run IOS on a Mac wouldn't it be grand! Or CAN we? You'd be Lion if you said it can't be done.
