The Verge reported that Apple sent invites for that iPad 3 event we all have waited for. It will be held on March 7 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10 a.m. PST. The three app icons featured on the shot hold small clues: The Maps icon shows an infinite loop (it is the “who,” as Apple’s address is 1 Infinite Loop); the Calendar displays Wednesday, March 7 (the “when”); but the keynote app is mystifying.
This news officially exposed CNBC’s report calling for a March unveiling in New York City inaccurate. True to Apple’s form, the invite teases with an iPad close-up shot featuring a finger touching upon the Calendar icon. The tagline reads:
We have something you really have to see. And touch.
Both the wording (“something you really have to see”) and the image appears to confirm the long-standing rumors of an ultra high-resolution Retina Display (2048-by-1536 pixels), reportedly the key selling point of the device. Also interesting is lack of the physical home button—assuming the close-up was meant to depict iPad 3 in portrait orientation.read more
As CultofMac Explains, Working in a Chinese factory doesn’t pay well. So you can’t afford to buy an iPhone, even if you make 5,000 of them a day, the next best thing is to buy a fake iPhone. And when you can’t afford a fake iPhone, people in China just pay for a cheap service that makes their friends think they have an iPhone by adding a “Sent From My iPhone” signature at the end of their texts. They pay $1/month for this service or 6.29758614 Chinese yuan.
The iPhone is too expensive. If you don’t want to spend that money, then fake it!” says the advert of one Shanghai-based vendor.
Most people in china using this service are younger, less affluent and less educated consumers, so it’s not a surprise that many of them can’t afford to buy an iPhone. To get the fake signature software running, users must give merchants their username and password for the hack to work. This raises many questions and concerns about what happens to that personal information and whether or not the merchants will use the account information for other purposes.
I feel bad for the Chinese workers who just want to be able afford to purchase one of the “magical” devices they help make. But spending an extra dollar every month for a service you can do yourself is not going to help you get closer to owning an iPhone.

With Apple’s upcoming tablet just weeks away, now may be the best time to sell your iPad 2. The iPad 2, the latest generation of Apple’s magical device, will lose value as soon as the next iPad is announced. Selling your iPad now may be your best bet in getting top value for your iPad and may help you acquire Apple’s next magical device. Selling it on eBay or Amazon may help you get the highest value for your iPad. However take in consideration that if someone can get a brand new 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 from Apple for $400 or less, they’re much less likely to pay as much for your used one. If you aren’t much of an entrepreneur yourself then Gazelle or GizmoTrader may be the way to go. But, if you have an iPad 2 that you’re planning to sell so you can get the money to purchase an iPad 3, there is no time like the present. Check out our complete iPad 3 Coverage here.read more
