Thank goodness! I'd been waiting to buy an iPad because they were so thick and heavy that they were hard to lift...

It could be a big disappointment...that actually is likely. Form factors don't warrant an expensive purchase; new features might, if you can use them. Sheepies will line up, regardless. Sticking with iPad2.

Lighter and thinner, along with the retina display, would probably be enough to get me to upgrade from my 2-plus year old iPad 2.

As for innovation, look for that to come (or not) primarily from iOS and apps.

Product refinement and improvement is a good thing, Felipe123. If only other companies would do the sameGǪ

By the way, why post someone else's delusional rant? Agreeing with it reflects badly on your judgment.

"New iPad To Be Thinner, Lighter"

Pretty much the same qualities I'm looking for in my second wife...

Apple, nobody cares if its slightly thinner or faster. We need more innovation and less modification of the same product. People buy the previous generations anyways since they are cheaper and the new products are marginal better. I still have the Ipad2 and it works perfectly for what I need (emails, pdfs, and note taking).

Quote from Mitchy Mitch in a previous article I read. I have to agree.

"Apple created its perfect storm. Guilty of arrogance, taking credit for others' work like multitouch resulting in Apple's patent being invalidated, abusing litigation to kill competition and consumer choice, cheapening of their products (iPhone 4S -> 5) with fragile recycled aluminum to maintain high profit level at the expense of inferior build quality, letting iOS go stale compared to Android, forcing a dangerously broken native maps on their customers, guilty of illegal labor and environmental violations to cut expenses, uninspiring incremental product updates, nothing innovative and so on."

I can say one thing for sure. Their financial call will say nothing about a new iPad (or any new product), other than, perhaps, a vague statement about release time, if asked.

What a breakthrough!

The day it gets released, I will wait outside my Apple Store at 3 am to buy it. And my friends will all envy me for having this original, unique product.

(And to those who blindly claim that Apple has lost its innovation, I say, wait till next year when you see an iPad with a 4 inch screen... which can make phone calls)
