    Definitely surprised, but not half as much as Microsoft must be.

    The Surface died today.

    I was surprised by the sheer multitudinous Apple objet d'art released today, I was thinking iPad Mini and MacBook.......but that stunning looking iMac has stirred up my cravings again.....the Mac Mini makes me think I have some spare space under my TV.....and the 4, please Mr Bank Manager, I didn't mean to do it, honestly, it was that Tim Cook that made me!

    Absolutely shocked. I mean, it makes sense to get on the once a year holiday cycle instead of the March one they have been on, but still, sitting here with a 3 I just got no more than 2 months ago, it sorta sucks since it was nearly a G I dropped buying it. Once a year was bad enough, what is it now going to be 6 month cycles?
    Will I sell my 3? No. But I am a bit cheezed. But I got caught up in the"must upgrade" mentality. Well, no more. Until mine dies, I no longer upgrade. No incentive to. In 6 mos, they'll be a better faster one anyways.

    I am curious what Apple is planning to do with the remaining stock of the now "old" New iPads (make sense? lol), seeing as they have removed it from the website. Considering the iPad 2 still costs $399, I wonder if they will even try to sell them.

    I just got the iPad 3 a very short time ago and its been replaced already. doubt if any would want to buy it when they can get a faster 4th gen for the same price i paid for the "New now retired" ipad. Thanks apple for taking my money

    I was thinking of upgrading my two year old iPad 1, but now I might just wait for spring when they release the iPad 5 :) :)

    On the news I heard that Apple did this to customers once before, An early model of one of the iphones got released and a few months later a modified one came out . I dont think I will bre buying anything Apple for a while after this.

    Is anyone selling their new iPad to get the new new Ipad? I'm considering it.
