During the iPad 2 media event Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs said that 2011 is the year of iPad 2, so he killed any speculations claiming that the iPad 3 could be introduced this fall. Moreover, Jobs denied rumors that Apple was working on the third tablet.
Remind you that John Gruber was the first who wrote: “I think the iPad fits most naturally into the same schedule as the iPods: where new hardware is announced and ships in September. My gut feeling is that Apple will move the iPad to a September release schedule, alongside the iPods.” Nevertheless, he was this very person who predicted Apple would release iPad 2 in March. So, let see, Apple often makes surprises!
Apple released the golden master version of iOS 4.3 to developers. The public release of the operating system is set to come out on the 11th March together with the release of the iPad 2. The update is available in versions for the iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, the iPad 2 will ship with iOS 4.3 installed. Typically a gold master issued to developers is identical to the version that eventually becomes the final release.
Alongside the new iPad 2 Apple yesterday released iTunes 10.2 that officially introduces support for iOS 4.3, even despite the fact that iOS 4.3 doesn't launch publicly until March 11th. The update also brings an improved home sharing feature to share libraries with iOS devices running iOS 4.3.
What's new in iTunes 10.2
Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.3.
Improved Home Sharing. Browse and play from your iTunes libraries with Home Sharing on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.3.
During yesterday’s iPad 2 media event Apple announced that the new iOS 4.3 is to be released on March 11th.
"With more than 160 million iOS devices worldwide, including over 100 million iPhones, the growth of the iOS platform has been unprecedented," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "iOS 4.3 adds even more features to the world's most advanced mobile operating system, across three blockbuster devices-iPad, iPhone and iPod touch-providing an ecosystem that offers customers an incredibly rich experience and developers unlimited opportunities."
iOS 4.3 will include a number of new features such as:
Jonathan Ive, designer of many Apple’s iconic products, is said to want to spend more time in England. Ive reportedly has proposed to commute from Somerset, but Apple's board seems unwilling.
A friend of the family told The Sunday Times: 'Unfortunately he is just too valuable to Apple and they told him in no uncertain terms that if he headed back to England he would not be able to sustain his position with them.'
Ive joined Apple in 1992 and has been responsible for the design of the unibody MacBook Pro, iPod, iPhone and iPad and rose to become the company's senior vice president of product design.
The author of Daring Fireball blog John Gruber suggested in one of his latest posts that the next-gen iPad will get a carbon fiber body instead of usual aluminum body.
"I could publish things I'm only half-sure about, like the iPad 2 switching from aluminum to a lightweight high-strength carbon fiber body, but I don't, because I'm only half sure and I've only heard about it from second-hand sources who themselves are unsure about it".
Along with new Macbook Pros yesterday Apple also released FaceTime for Mac.
Its latest beta-version became available back in October and allowed users who entered their Apple ID to chat with other users of Macs, iPhone 4 or iPod 4G.
The new version of application now supports 720p video, which can be made with the FaceTime HD camera in fresh MacBook Pros. The standard-definition camera on most other Apple devices can offer VGA-quality for Mac-to-Mac video calls.

According to CNN, Apple is currently negotiating with different record labels to improve the quality of songs available in the iTunes Music Store.
Current songs can be downloaded in 16-bit format, and Apple wants to increase the quality of downloads to 24-bit high-fidelity format. This is a format in which studio recordings are being originally captured. Then they usually get downgraded to 16-bit format and delivered to CDs and iTunes.

Apple stopped to support original iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G starting from iOS 4.0. Their decision was justified because of the low RAM and sow CPU in these first-gen devices released back in 2007.
iPhone jailbreak community has now come up with a mod, which brings the complete look and feel of iOS 4.2.1 for iPhone 2G, 3G and iPod touch 1G and 2G. The mod is basically based on the iPhone OS 3.1.3, to replicate the experience of iOS 4 on the first and second generation iPhone and iPod touch.
This custom firmware, named WhiteD00r, includes everything from iOS 4.x: wallpapers, new semi transparent dock (and UI), backgrounds, all new icons from iOS 4.x, Voice Control, multitasking, video recording, and more. Full list of features can be found
Moreover WhiteD00r was also relased for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G. Regular iOS 4.х works really slow, on these devices, while modified 3.1.3 has much more chances.
WhiteD00r custom 4.2.1 firmware for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 1G and iPod touch 2G can be downloaded from
