Apple's rolling a new something today -- but what is it? Ha ha, just kidding, we know it's a new iPad, probably. But will it be named the iPad 3 or iPad HD? Will it be more expensive or cheaper than the existing models? What new features will it sport, and how disappointing will they be to everyone? Find out as I liveblog the event! Refresh this page constantly, for updates.
12:50: Ten minutes to showtime! If, like me, you aren't at the event but want to follow along at home, check out this list of liveblogs from ZDNet. Hopefully some of them won't crash!
12:52: (Speaking of crashing, my own work computer, a MacBook Pro, just kernel panicked while I was setting up this blog, forcing me to switch over to my personal laptop. Irony? Should I be updating this on an iPad, somehow?)
12:55: To quckly recap what everyone thinks is going to happen: incrementally improved iPad, with faster chip, higher-resolution screen, maybe with 4G connection. Maybes: iPad 2 still on sale as lower-end, cheaper version; some kind of Apple TV announcement?
1:03: Tim Cook is out! And he's saying "Post PC" many, many times, just in case you thought maybe there'd be some Mac announcements today.
1:06: Brief video about Apple Stores. "This is where you will be spending too much money on the thing we're about to give you. You cannot resist!"
