The bezel on the real iPad now looks obnoxiously huge next to the fake/rumored/better be new iPad. And for the first time since the iPad was released somebody would be able to tell if you are a real baller or not at just a glance. :x

Apple announcement wrote:
By early last year, Apple’s cash balance had built to a point beyond what we needed to run our business and maintain flexibility to take advantage of strategic opportunities, so we announced a plan to return $45 billion to shareholders over three years. As of next week we will have executed $10 billion of that plan.

We find ourselves in the fortunate position of continuing to generate large amounts of cash, including $23 billion in cash flow from operations in the last quarter alone.

Apple’s management team and Board of Directors have been in active discussions about returning additional cash to shareholders. As part of our review, we will thoroughly evaluate Greenlight Capital’s current proposal to issue some form of preferred stock. We welcome Greenlight’s views and the views of all of our shareholders.



Translation: We have too much damn money. So here’s some back so you’ll STFU and quit feeling entitled to tell us what to do. :lol:

NEWSFLASH: Apple not doing well in countries where the majority of the population lives in houses with walls made of corrugated roofing and car hoods.

Will they keep the iPad 2 around after the release of the new iteration? That would be a 3 generation-old device still on sale!

They'll probably kill the 2 and sell the 3 (or I guess it's 4 now) as the cheaper model.

There's rumors of Apple making a watch. Only one major problem: NOBODY WEARS A FUCKING WATCH ANYMORE AND THREFOR IT WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE HIPSTER DEVICE. FFS. :x

But you could get notifications without having to reach into your pocket first. Game changer.

This would be kind of cool but I’d still feel like a douche wearing it.

And I’m sure that’s not the design Apple is working on anyway.

Considering Apple just enabled the use of a bluetooth keyboard with the current Apple TV something must be brewing.

Saw that in the latest update. If they could make a version of the Apple TV with the power of a Mac Mini and the price of an Xbox that could play the equivalent of PC games then we could see a serious upset in the gaming industry.

We use a Mac Mini in our living room which is mostly just used to stream content from other Mac’s iTune’s libraries because using the Apple TV is way too cumbersome to do anything on the fly, even with a keyboard.

I still think a large Apple TV is going to be a hard sell unless they keep the box they have now about the same and really beef up the app availability on the full TV.

And there are a lot of games that were ported from iOS to OSX that are cheap but they also aren’t great compared to console games. I hope that level of sucking isn’t what is going to happen to an app enabled Apple TV. We’re going to want console level gaming and probably even some exclusives.
