Looking at the back the cover seems little more square on the edges than the iPad4 (think of the difference in the case if the iPhone 3 and iPhone 4). Would not surprise me at all if it isn't the new iPad 5 they are thinking about.

But end of the day who really cares? If you have an iPad and it works, who cares about the next one coming out, especially if it doesn't do anything different or has new features you miss on your current one.

The desire to constantly upgrade is one that we need to get out of. Companies know people will constantly upgrade so why should they invest in developing a rock solid unit when "oh well they will buy a new one in 12 months". Gone are the days of something being built to last.

OK. It doesn't matter.

My comment wasn't about your post (which was pretty amusing) but the source...

Maybe they are experimenting with design. One of the snarky comments that was made when one of the iPhone versions came out was 'how will others know that I'm better than them if the phone looks the same'. This type of comment was meant to insult iPhone users, but there is the practical part of the problem: if all generations look the same, an unscrupulous person can sell an older version as a newer one.

I don't think that the veterans should scare off the new members.

There are some topics that leave members with shorter fuses, and any discussion about Apple falls under that category.

Not really. Apple spend 15 years updating the majority of their hardware every 6 months. People were appalled when they started shifting to a 9-12 months updating cycles 5 years ago. And now we're going back, people cry again? Ridiculous. Your product must have been what you needed since you bought it, otherwise you might as well wait until Apple goes bankrupt and then buy the last iPad they released - It'll never be updated, so success!

Exactly. I dont see anyone bitching about desktop and laptop computers being updated on virtually a month by month basis. Tablets are computers. Weakers barebones computers so theres lots of room for updates on them.

I agree. I find this kind of complaining absolutely absurd. There was so much crying on the apple forums.. it's like Apple owes it to fans to delay its upgrades so they feel like they have the best for as long as they can. It wasn't even that big of an upgrade. Yes--a big boost in processor speed, but the chassis remained the same (minus Lightning), weight, design, etc. all remained the same. no big deal. the next one might be out in two months.

Another thing to consider is that the amount of work you can do on a tablet is limited. Unless you using it to play games, chances are the iPad3 are more than enough for everything. It doesn't make sense to cry about the iPad4 in that case, since it does every single thing your iPad3 does, exactly the same.

Until the iPad starts making coffee, you don't have a good reason to whine, unless your only reason to buy an iPad is to be cool (Or game as mentioned), and thus need the latest iPadX model because it is one number higher than iPadX-1.
