Apple Apple has announced an iPad event for March 7 - iPad 3, obviously. The invitation clearly shows a high-resolution display, and some argue it's missing a home button (we'll see). If this really has a 2048x1536 resolution... What do you mean, leap-frogging the 'competition'. So, anybody want to buy a relatively pristine iPad 2 with grey smart cover? Comes with the box and warranty and everything?

Be informed. Look at the CLEARLY defined product cycles. Read the Apple tech press. Understand that the world owes you zilch.

Hm, Parinirvana ("Nirvana Day") does seem fairly close to iPad unveilings...

And Asala - Dharma Day ("The anniversary of the start of Buddha's teaching"), in July, is around the time of traditional iPhone launch dates.


(BTW, I really sort of wish to see, one day, the end of ~"Understand that the world owes you zilch" being thrown around ...that, determining how much the world ~owes you, is essentially the whole idea behind money, and also with plenty of less tangible perk, social interactions, and so on - a major part of our universal desire & drive for higher social status, is, ultimately, increasing the chances of others doing things for us even on a whim of ours; that seems to be the "optimal" state of affair for us - so it's also natural to be too ~eager, for our present influence)
