Network World - The iOSsphere obsession with figuring out the precise announcement and shipment dates for iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 continues.

The iOSpherians were reduced to trying to decode how unsubstantiated rumors of future orders for tablet displays might reveal iPad dates. But the efforts rarely get more precise than “the fall,” which most of those with the intelligence level of a lemming already could guess.

Also this week, Apple’s order of prototype 13-inch screens ignited speculation that Apple is about to create a larger-screened iPad.

You read it here second.
This week’s top headline: “Apple is doomed even with iPhone 6 and iPad 5?”
By a website called “Society and Religion” or perhaps more accurately “Society and Religion and iPads.” The headline is then immediately contradicted, in a post by “S&R Staff” that is a model of iConherence, as follows: “Apple Is Not Doomed. And Verizon is not a snapshot of the world, it is not even a true snapshot of the US. I’m not saying Apple is doomed…it is not. Actually only a fringe sector of people actually think Apple is doomed.”

iPad 5 due in fall of 2013 because a Taiwan display maker is shipping more units

The connection between the two is somewhat tenuous, in The Rollup’s opinion. And in any case, we end up where we’ve been for months: expecting a new iPad about a year after the last one – in the fall.
