For those who hadn't heard yet, tragedy struck the Foxconn plant in Chengdu, China yesterday. It was being reported that at least two people died in the explosion and 16 were hurt in the blast at the plant. Foxconn is one of Apple's largest contract manufacturers, and Apple is working with Foxconn to understand what caused the event.
MacTech Boot Camp 2011 kicked off in San Francisco at the end of January to a sold-out crowd, and managed to do the same last week in Dallas. So where is the next event taking place, and how can you attend? We’re glad you asked.
The invitations have been sent, the banners are flying at Yerba Buena and all that remains now is to see what Apple has on deck for us come Wednesday, March 2 at a special media event that will is expected to reveal the first sequel to the company’s market-leading iPad.

Invitations have been sent out for Apple's March 2 iPad event. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10:00 a.m.--the same venue where Apple's announced plenty of other products in the past. Stay tuned to Maclife.com for complete coverage.
Although Apple has yet to send invitations, a new report claims that the iPad 2 will be officially announced at a media event held in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 2, just a bit more than a week away.
It seems like an eternity since we first heard whisperings of The Daily, the iPad-only publication from News Corp. launched Wednesday. The pet project of none other than Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, the publishing titan was joined on stage by Apple’s vice president of Internet Services, Eddy Cue as well as editorial staff to unveil the new app to the press.
First, The Beatles came to iTunes. Now, it appears the other Holy Grail of Apple events will be taking place soon as The Wall Street Journal is confirming that Verizon Wireless will land the iPhone at an event on Tuesday.
So this is an odd way to end the week -- Twitter is exploding with a gaggle of invitations to a Verizon event behind held next Tuesday, January 11, and the leading speculation is the carrier may introduce a CDMA iPhone at long last.
It looks like it's going to be a scorching Indian Summer. Apple will be hosting a fall event--where and when and for what reason is yet to be answered. Your calendars will have to remain blank for now.
Kara Swisher of All Things D speculates that the event could introduce FaceTime as an open industry standard, or bring new processors to the iPod. We're sort of banking on the latter, hoping we'll see new music players from Apple with attached cameras and retina displays. Really, if all the rumors could just come together and become a reality, we'll be completely satisfied.
