A second-generation iPad has not even been officially announced, yet a third generation is already being predicted for fall...

Apple Insider - Apple may be prepping iPad 3 for fall 2011 launch - rumor

I'm waiting for iPad 5 in 2012. Rumors that it might have a 3D display seem far-fetched, but...
  • A source that has seen a prototype reports it is paper-thin and folds to fit in a shirt pocket, but also transforms into a mini Seqway scooter (with an anticipated range of 75-100 miles per charge).
  • Pacific rim suppliers suggest Apple is building two microwave ovens into their tablet device (one forward-facing, and the other rear-facing), both of which will feature 4G broilers.
  • Anonymous bloggers confirm that Apple is conducting secret negotiations with the Federal Reserve for future iPads to function as cash machines, printing new US currency on demand (debited from the user's iTunes account).

    The iPad 6 will create a virtual world that surrounds the owner for 4 feet in every direction. I'll get that one!

    That's kinda cool. Maybe. But I'm holding out for an FM receiver.

    I'm holding out for the cyberbrain implant.

    Someone should just Google this and put the rumors to rest.
