Adding credence to that assumption, however, is cold hard data, which indicates that the new App Store's first day of business was gangbusters.

    According to Apple, the Mac ...

    The iPad was released only nine months ago and already anticipation for the next version is at a fever pitch. A few mockup images have been floating around the internet for some time now, but these have mostly been from case manufactures. These images have only given us a few hints at what Apple is planning for the next version of the iPad. Of course, nothing is final until Steve releases a product to the world himself.

    It's a page right out of the Apple playbook. When new or refreshed products are about to be released, Apple places strict, unyielding limitations on when Apple retail store employees can take vacation time.
