Apple is now selling more than one iPad every second, every minute, of every day. (An estimated 1.22 iPads per second, in fact). No one else in the space comes close, nor, in the current comptitive component supply chain fandango, is it possible to.
Apple [AAPL] introduced Final Cut Pro X last week to a huge response — the majority of which exceedingly negative.

iPhone 5 is scheduled to show itself in September, just in time for the introduction of iOS 5.

Does Apple have an iPad plan to make the technology interesting?
