It's a Lovely Day to Sit Under the Apple Tree

Click to see something Resolutionary!
Nothing like gettting out from under a rock.  And what a day;  it's sunny and warm!  Go sit under an Apple tree.

The new iPad has been announced by Apple, along with pricing.  When the Apple store reopens shortly, the new iPad, 3rd generation, will be available for pre-ordering.  It will be available March 16th.

Pricing will stay the same as the previous generation.  The iPad 2 will remain available from Apple, at $100 off at each price point.

If you've seen an iPad 2, you will notice the sharper display of the new iPad.  Looks fast, too.  Pretty neat stuff. 

But Hey!  I'm still a PC.
