It's a minor spec bump. Big deal, go ahead and tell me it has a 2x faster CPU. Cool, but what's that really amount to in Real-World usage for what the majority of you actually use your iPad for? My 3rd gen works just fine. I'm glad they updated it with the new dock connectors. It needed to be done. Like it or not. What better time than before the holidays where people buy a ton of them. It's a good move. Angry Birds and Safari will still work on your iPad 3. Videos will look just as good as before, and the world will keep turning.
