It seems like only yesterday when I took a wrong turn at a shopping mall and ended up waiting in line for some magical device I knew nothing about. Granted, there were lots of people wrapped around an Apple Store, but how was I to know Apple was launching a new iPad that was as thin as a pencil, had a faster processor, and could be individualized with those foldable Smart Covers? And if I could predict the future, it sounds like I'll be waiting in some longish line again for another flat computer that has an even better display, an even faster processor, and surprise features that'll dazzle us before the glow of a blue Apple retail shirt.
I already know most of you already have your wallets out. Some of you are checking the source code on Apple.com for any imminent hints, while the rest of you are furiously refreshing Apple's store page. Although, I hope you'll read our predictions instead (we're half intelligent, half coffee-addled). But if you're looking for the real skinny, we're just going to have to wait for Wednesday. We'll be here on March 7th: still rambling, still highly caffeinated, and probably drunk on iPad 3 rumors... or is it iPad HD? iPad 2S?
To find out what the name of the next iPad will be, tune in tomorrow at 12:30 pm EST when Don and I will be kicking things off early to answer your questions and engage in general mischief before the iPad event. Whether Apple livestreams the event or not, you'll get all of our flavorful commentary and up to the minute information about the crazy stuff being presented on stage.
Don't forget to refresh the MacStories homepage regularly tomorrow — the rest of the MacStories team will be writing articles as fast as these products and numbers and shiny things are being announced! If you can't be in the now, you can always catch up with the announcements later in the day. Don't worry — it'll all be here.
Bookmark this page and set a date for Wednesday, March 7th, for our realtime coverage.
