Latest Rumors Point to March 2013 for Next Generation iPad and iPad mini

image

Spoiler Alert: That brand new iPad under the Christmas tree is about to be old news, if the latest rumors targeting March 2013 for the introduction of the fifth-generation iPad and second-generation iPad mini with Retina display are accurate.  Forgive me if I've dampened anyone's enthusiasm or spoiled anyone's surprise, but considering the rate at which iPad 4s and iPad minis have been flying off the shelves I'd reckon that many of you already guess/hope/suspect that one of those wrapped gift boxes under the tree is a new iPad just waiting for you to get your hands on in a few short hours. So I know it might not be the most welcome news to hear the latest iPad rumors floating around today, hinting at a possible March 2013 release date for the new, fifth-generation iPad and the second-generation iPad mini.

 

The world continues to turn, and the rumor mill continues to churn out details of the inevitable...



A 6-inch iPad mini? Only a Matter of Time...

This is what I'm talking about! So many Apple pundits had complaints and negative words to say about the iPad mini before it was released, and now that this tablet-that-should-never-be has hit the market, it is one of the best selling devices in the industry. So mark my words when I say the iPad mini isn't the end of the line for new and different iDevice form factors.

 

This should really go without saying and yet, when I suggest that Apple will need to continue to create new iDevice size options to keep up with the competitive nature of the game (see HERE for my previous post on the topic), the backlash and nay saying can be intense. However, to remain relevant I feel Apple must continue to do as they have done and diversify their line to remain a top player in a world where the lines between tablet, phone and even PC continue to blur more and more with each passing year.

EC-BC's Hercules: A hardy backpack that lives up to its name!

image

Everyone knows that the name Hercules is associated with great strength and integrity. Now, with their new backpack of the same name, EC-BC has done a most excellent job of creating a high-quailty backpack that embodies those same qualities of strength and integrity.

 

 

The Hercules is a stylish bag that looks nothing like a military issue pack, nor even a particularly rugged bag. But don't let its fashionably attractive appearance decieve you! The Hercules is every bit as tough and durable as many "military standard" backpacks! In fact, with its superior craftsmanship and intense attention to detail, the Hercules is actually more rugged than many military issue bags that I have evaluated over the years! Now that's saying something...
