image thumb8 iPad 3 or As Some Say the iPad HD Releasing on March 16

Call me an Anti-Apple person (I am avoiding explicit words here) but the truth is that news of the next generation of the iPad is going to be called the iPad HD and not the iPad 3. iPad HD, HTC Desire HD, isn’t that a similar naming convention adopted by Apple rivals? Ones that Apple along with his fanboys detests so much? I thought these guys tried to do things a bit differently from the common and the usual, but they couldn’t come up with something different in terms of the name. After of course manufacturing devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad that boast remarkable architecture and hardware?

These are but rumors that have been circling the blogs minting hits out of the Apple products and the upcoming iPad 3/iPad HD. As for the question when is the iPad 3 releasing? The word is it will be announced today at the Apple Event and will be hitting the shelves on March 16 (not confirmed). As for the features include improving the Retina Display Resolution by twice the existing one. Other than it will also feature a quad core processor, LTE connectivity to name a few. We are waiting the releasing of this device and we are confident that it will be something BIG.

Most iPhone 4S users are still waiting for a jailbreak for their device. It is more than a month now since iPhone 4S was officially released and still there is no news about Jailbreak availability.

Steve Jobs was great, so great that his death left a massive impact on every one around. To us Steve Jobs was more of a Mindset than just a man. Everyone who knew about the man, anyone who had ever used an Apple product.
