    iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    I will be watching. Hopefully it will be available soon and yes, I will wait in line again. Any guesses on the one more thing?

    Re: iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    Any word on simply putting a USB port on one of those things yet?

    I was thinking of the C128. I mean, you can't go wrong with 128k of memory - that baby will fly!

    Re: iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    I bought my wife an Ipad 2 for Christmas and I really didn't know how much she would use it but she does use it a lot. She probably spends 70/30 of the time with the Ipad compared to the laptop.

    I'm itching to get something new. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to see what the new Ipad has in store but I'm leaning towards one of the the following:

    Ipad 3
    Asus Transformer Prime
    or
    One of the new ultrabooks with an SSD/I5

    If I didn't already have a laptop I would instantly get the ultrabook.

    On a side note, I have an HP netbook that's been collecting dust because it's so damn slow. I installed Windows 8 on it a couple of days ago and it runs a lot better. I still probably will rarely use it though. If anyone wants to buy a cheap netbook that's barely been used.....

    Yeah, i'm kinda looking around too, for a bit longer down the road.

    -google's rumored tablet
    -ipad 3
    -ultrabook once win8 releases (might as well get the latest OS for free)

    At some point i could see a lot of laptops being win8 but designed like the transformer prime. Use like a laptop when you want, otherwise use it as a tablet.

    Re: iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    I'm planning on buying an iPad HD if it has quite a few upgrades...this will be my first iPad if it passes. I was less than impressed with the release of the iPhone 4S, so I have a feeling this release could go down that same path. We'll wait and see.

    Re: iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    The only thing that concerns me about the Ipad is that I rarely leave a device how it comes out of the box. I think about how many things I've changed on my Droid X.

    That remains to be seen. We will know soon enough.

    I remember loading Donkey Kong from floppy disk. I would start it, eat dinner and it might be ready to play.

    Re: iPad 3 Announcement Tomorrow

    I think we'll be surprised at how much the Retina display improves the experience. It will most likely also be 4G, with better processor, camera, and possibly Siri. (I know, I'm not really going out on a limb here.)

    The "one more thing" could be a fresh Apple TV (box), with 1080p, possibly some new Airplay features. Almost every store is out of the current generation.

    I guess I don't understand why people are so bent out of shape because of the lack of USB port. I rarely ever use the USB port on my mac laptop. The only time I use my USB port is if I plug in a printer and 95% of the time, I'm using a networked printer.

    Flash drives are dead to me since most services are in the cloud anyway.

    Have you used the Windows 8 consumer preview? I was pretty excited about it. But about ten minutes after the install was done I started looking into what Linux was offering for my next laptop. Perhaps it will work better in a touch screen environment, but I was not impressed for a laptop. Definitely try it out before buying a windows 8 device.

    Major step forward...again...always keeping a step ahead of everyone else. The iPad is taking the country by storm. The military just signed a big contract to do the same thing the airlines are already doing...replace all of the manuals pilots haul around with a single iPad. Taxi's are starting to use them. Restaurants use them. The world continues to change...
