I just coined 'Apple Fatigue'! Tired of all the hype only to be disappointed!
I'll wait and see what they have to deliver!

Personally ... I think this is a smart move.

1. A lower price to entice those on the fence because they can only afford a Fire ... but really want an iPad.
2. With all of this "cloud" stuff ... the need for a "ga-zillion" GB local storage is not really needed so much. You just swap in/out via the "cloud" what you want/need and call it good.

It'll have SIRI.

I have heard that the reason the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 do not have SIRI is because a new voice recognition chip was put in the 4S. Putting SIRI on the iPhone 4 would produce too many false responses. (At least this is the excuse Apple is giving us.)

I would think Apple would have put that in the iPad3/2S (whatever they call it).

Sounds like Apple is about to play us all for fools again and try to sell you a 8GB IPad 3 for $499 so they can justify selling the 16GB version for more than the previous year's 16GB IPad 2.

8GB for a tablet? That's a joke.
