Today is Apple’s iPad 3 (or iPad HD) event. It begins at 10 a.m P.S.T and I will be updating the site every few minutes with the newest features that are announced. So make sure to refresh every few minutes to get the latest details. We should be seeing; better cameras, 4G LTE, possibly a retina display (which would need a quad core processor to run it), and a 1mm thicker construction. Stay tuned.
Apple announced a new Apple TV which now supports 1080p. It has a new interface but looks the same as the current model hardware wise.
The new interface also lets you use the Apple Genius feature to recommend movies and Tv shows.
You can pre-order this Apple TV right now for $99, and get on March 16th.
Tim is talking about how Apple sold 15.4 million iPads last quarter alone.
There are over 200,000 apps just for iPad.
THE NEW IPAD IS HERE!

Surprisingly their was no official name given so I guess we have a choice of calling it; iPad HD, iPad 3 or “The new iPad”.
