March 7 has finally arrived, and with it comes Apple’s media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. After teasing with last week’s “We have something you really have to see. And touch” invitations to the press, the fateful day has arrived with CEO Tim Cook taking the stage.
Last week’s invitation for Apple’s media event today included the curious wording “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” While those words have been over-analyzed in the seven days since being posted, a last-minute rumor is now speculating that the next iPad may gain the ability to feel the screen as well as touch it.
While Apple does its best to conceal when new products will be released, there’s one pretty sure-fire way to know when an upgrade to an existing product is coming: Stock availability.

Getting excited about next week’s Apple media event? Apparently, so are the folks over at Ars Technica, who have spotted the fabled iPad 3 (or is it iPad HD?) lurking in their server logs. Meanwhile, the banners are going up at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center, which means the countdown is on. In the meantime, the weekend is here again, so kick back and soak up the day’s news for this fine Friday, March 2, 2012.

March has finally arrived, and with it comes the long-awaited Readability app for iOS, the newest kid on the “read later” block which has been in App Store limbo since last November. And that’s not all: Flipboard also pushed out a new update that finally brings Cover Stories to the iPad.
