Apple rallies employees for secret meeting, probably ahead of media event
Retail employees at Apple were asked tosign a non-disclosure agreement in anticipation of an all-handsmeeting later in the week, possibly before an upcoming mediaevent, according to AppleInsider. Employees who didn't sign the agreement were – of course – to be excluded from the meeting. There could be twoproducts behind this meeting – a new MacBook Pro or thenext-generation of the iPad. But the new lineup of MacBook Pronotebooks is expected to be released this Thursday on the very birthday of Steve Jobs. So the only option left isthe iPad 2, an announcement well worth of media attention.
This would prove wrong recent rumorsabout the delay of the next-gen iPad, but would match Apple's strictone year product cycle. It was around this time of the year in 2010when Apple announced its revolutionary new iPad. So even though this is still just arumor, you might want to wait up just one more week before getting anew tablet - could be well worth it.
