    The iPad isn't a year old. I'd rather read lots of posts about the iPad. Which is real and here. Rather than rumours, false sightings and fake stories. Are you guys really that bored of your iPad already that you just sit and wish the days away for the ipad2 to arrive. Come on guys, enjoy what you've got and not what you haven't.

    Unfortunately you live in the world of Internet not to mention Apple and the iPad. This product has gather media following like a tidal wave and the interest in both Apple and the iPad is amazing to say the least. Forums are a gathering place for information and as this is one of the largest private forums in the world it is only natural that we get a lot of users wanting to know the latest. Moderators like myself try to limit the number of threads by merging or closing when information is out of date. Frankly there is not much you can do but ride out the storm over the next 30 to 60 days as I can assure you the activity will increase after March 2. We will set up a separate section for iPad 2 or what ever it is called once it is released.

    Untill they release the new iPad I dont think you'll be reading about much else. Unfortunatly most people find un-released products much moe exciting than the one they have had for a year or so.

    Not me.
    I just do not take them seriously until it has actually appeared.

    Actually, I don't mind reading some of the fanboy wish-fulfillment fantasies which have appeared, and it is exciting to anticipate what iPad2 will offer. Apple's products are so cool, you can't escape the hype. But if it annoys you... just tune out. (The vast majority of the world's population do.)

    The rumours are gonna be put to rest Wednesday. Not only will ipad 2 be announced, supposedly the first shipment of devices is gonna make its wah to stores then also. Realeased to the public wayyy ahead of schedule. I love my ipad as is. Of course i want new features but ipad 2 has to have some major improvements n upgrades.

    Since I just got my iPad three months ago, I'm enjoying mine and in that camp for sure. I won't be getting the 2 with a nearly brand new iPad as it is!
    Once the iPad 2 is released, this will be an interesting forum as there will be eventually two groups of users, the first generation and the second, so I guess we may see more discussion in the separate sections of iPad 1 and 2, but then so much really overlaps into other discussions, like apps, OS, etc. But I will be interested to hear about the user experiences and I do want to read the 3/2 media announcement. And like SweetPoison said, I totally tune out the stories of endless speculation that start to get on my own personal nerves. But I hear what you're saying, and yes, I too like to hear what is REAL, not what is speculation and hype, so I just tune out.

    The other reason why current owners of iPad1 would resist upgrading is because the amount of "accessorial investment" they've put in. When you've spent a ton of money on cases, covers, clamps, stands, what have you - you don't want all that rendered suddenly unuseable.

    That's a good point too! Especially just 3 months in!
