    Any ideas of what else could be coming up with the release of the iPad3 or after it? I hope it is the new iMac and/or MacPro. I really want a new desktop computer.

    iMacs are due for a refresh soon, around May timeframe based on prior years.

    I think that MacBook Pro is also getting updated soon.

    Then there IS that rumor about the iPhone 5 later this year.

    Obviously we can only speculate so heres my guesses

    AppleTV 3 (Pro):
    - Not a television. Just a more advanced Apple TV 2
    - 1080P
    - 3D Support (w/ new Anger Driven codec. The more angry someone gets at the mere existence of 3D the flatter the image becomes.)
    - Thunderbolt
    - A5 and 16GB Storage for Apps
    - Not a full app catalog. Mainly the TV Apps we get on iPad (ABC, Hulu+, TNT, HBOGo etc)
    - Games
    - Advanced remote with Microphone (Siri).
    - A true iOS device and make the need for an Apple Brand TV less important.
    - $199

    AppleTV Classic
    - Same as current Apple TV (720p)
    - Price reduction to compete with the lower end Roku
    - AirPlay (Marketed towards Mountain Lion and iOS users)
    - No Apps
    - $79

    Time Capsule:
    - iTunes Server built in (FINALLY!)
    - Thunderbolt
    - Direct connection to Apple TV 3 for streaming local 1080p video
    $299 - 2TB/ $399 - 3TB

    iTunes Update
    - A complete overhaul. This software is severely outdated and sluggish.
    - Split media to multiple sources (Audio goes local, Video goes external storage)
    - Smart file recognition (no more exclamation points for a renamed file)
    - 3D Movies in catalog
    - More Ping because we all love it so much
    - A long overdue name change to "iTunes"
    $Free
