    What the *&%# is Apple up to? iPad gens 3,4,5 and mini released w/i one yr by spring 2013.

    My iPad 3 buyers guide Hub is completely obsolete as is my new iPad 3.  3rd gen came out in March 2012, 4th gen at Christmas, Mini at Christmas, 5th gen by spring 2013.  I bought my iPad 3 in September.  It had only been out for a few months.  By Christmas it was a generation behind and by spring it will be two gens behind.  What is going on.  Does anyone have an inside scoop?

    Your 3rd generation iPad isn't totally obsolete, but you're right, Apple releasing 2 new generations within a year is a little ridiculous.  But they've operated like that for a long time, so when you buy any Apple device you should just expect the newer version to come out 6 months later.

    As long as people are willing to buy it.  They will continue to make new one with as little improvement as possible.

    Since we majority of our techies junkie or people who take pride of having the newest gadget they will continue to make money for so little of work/improvement.

    Gone are the days where apple pride itself of being an innovative force.

      I think you have hit on the strategy of Apple.  Biggest buck for the littlest bang, and do it often.  Thanks.

    Nobody said there's gonna be an iPad 5 in spring for sure. And anyways, consumers want the latest hardware, so Apple is stepping up their game.

      The rumors are definitely everywhere.  It looks like they are all either feeding off each other or off the one source in Japan.  I'm taking this hub down now.  It's done.  Thanks for the comment Oilersmyth.
