Apple Tablet Rumors Go Down Under

| News

Apple has apparently been showing off the specifications for its rumored tablet device in Australia. The specs were shown to media companies as part of discussions to bring content to the device, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The latest rumors claimed Apple's tablet will be bigger that the iPhone and iPod touch, but still small enough to fit in a purse, handbag or book bag.

Apple has been rumored to be negotiating with publishers to bring books and magazines to its tablet. New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller added fuel to the rumors a few days ago when he mentioned an "impending Apple slate" during a presentation.

Despite the growing number of rumors pointing to a tablet device from Apple, the Cupertino-based company hasn't publicly offered any details or confirmation that a product launch is on the way.

The rumors keep coming in. I don’t see an Apple tablet coming out in the next couple of months. Maybe in spring. Now that I’ve set a time frame, Apple will no doubt release its mythical tablet device early just to spite me.

The Apple “iTablet” is getting to be like extraterrestrials. We know they’re out there, but we don’t know what form they take and we can’t yet prove their existence.

Unless it’s Morena Baccarin.


You journalist types have been speculating and rumor-mongering for months now.
I can’t believe that someone, somewhere doesn’t know the truth is out there.

If it should all be exposed as a totally fictitious story then no-one will ever believe anything ever again. Will they?

So it must be true. Mustn’t it? - You can tell me. I won’t breathe a word.

BTW. New Zealand doesn’t have an Apple Retail store -  perhaps one of you would be good enough to start a rumor.


Unless it?s Morena Baccarin.

I had to look her up and, in the process, discovered that ABC is resurrecting the series V.

“An extraterrestrial race arrives on Earth with seemingly good intentions, only to slowly reveal their true machinations the more ingrained into society they become.”

Uh, I know their true machinations, as I watched the original 1983 miniseries, sequel (V - The Final Battle) and even the short-lived (16 episodes?) TV series—and I have the DVDs.

Sounds like the show’s producers had a typical brainstorm: “Ya know, most of those who saw the original series are now old farts who can’t remember ‘cause they have Alzheimers.”
