Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

Considering that the idea of an Apple tablet is still only an Internet-generated hyper rumour ...


There was an recent article, by a former Apple Senior Marketing Manager, on how Apple use controlled leaks to hype products. This is not just a rumour going by his experience.

Right, but until Steve holds the thing up, the rumours are still rumours and should not be treated as fact, no matter how many lines pundits write about the damn thing!

It's going to happen. It's just not in Apple's interest to see rumours reach this level only to disappoint everyone and damage their share price.
