I don't believe in rumors. New iPad to be slightly different / have new things in it? Another case-based Apple rumor? What is this, phrenology?! According to these bumps, the new iPad will be a spend-thrift and have pugilistic propensities! Mac App Store to open today? Somewhere out there, a fanboy has a tear rolling down his cheek, as this store opening is virtual, thus he cannot be first in line. (Don't worry kid, Woz would have found a way to cut you, anyway.) Microsoft Store opening in New York City in 2011? They'll FINALLY be giving that other computer store a run for their money! You know the one I mean! (The Sony Style Store, of course. They can't touch Apple Store! Don't be silly.) Windows 8 64-bit will be fully 3D, codenamed "Wind"? Yep. You'll be able to proudly boast: "My laptop has Wind!" How. Unfortunate. iPhone 4 for Verizon LTE "right after Christmas"? "Ho Ho Ho! And what did YOU get for Christmas, little boy?!" "Disapointed." Jeff Grinchogyi is the dealnews Media Editor.
