“The new iPad” has arrived, and thanks to months of mostly accurate rumors, the only real surprise wound up being the name (so much for iPad 3 or iPad HD!). But that doesn’t mean this year’s iPad is perfect -- we’re the sort of users who are always left wanting more.
Blasting through a series of product updates and announcements this morning in San Francisco, Apple CEO Tim Cook wasted no time cutting to the chase by announcing what we all wanted to hear: “The new iPad.”
In just 48 short hours, Wednesday’s Apple media event will be a memory, and we’ll be making those important life-or-death decisions. (“Buy an iPad 3?

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Apple Rumour Roundup, Mac|Life’s bi-weekly take on the rumors and speculation surrounding Cupertino. This week, we've got our radar set on the iPad 3.

Another week goes flying by! Friday is here again, and with it comes the usual wave of rumors, product updates and fee increases by AT&T. Oh, missed that last one?
