Apple Both The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, the usual means through which Apple itself spreads rumours, have reported that a 7" iPad will be launched coming October. It's pretty obvious why Apple would leak this information now - to hinder the launch of the Nexus 7. According to Gruber, it would sport a 7.85" 1024x768 display - quite a step down from the 1280x800 7" display on the Nexus. Still, this is about the operating system, not specifications, so it doesn't matter all that much. I wonder what Jobs would think of this 7" tablet. Oh wait.

I think you're trying to grind an axe with Steve, which is fun, but I hope you're not missing the larger point which almost everyone in society does these days ( and probably other days too).

It is wise to change one's position after further reflection leads one to a different conclusion. That change in position should not be derided, but celebrated.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Ooooh, you like quotes?

We Are At War With Eastasia. We Have Always Been At War With Eastasia.

--Big Brother (a great mind, the equal of Pythagoras, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, ans Steve Jobs, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh).

Try telling that to a Politician.
All they will think of is 'U-Turn' and reject it outright.

Personally, I think you are correct.
