For probably at least a decade, rumors have occasionally popped up about Apple working on a new tablet device. This time, they’ve really taken, with mainstream news sources talking about it, too. All of the frenzy around a device that is still just a rumor led one newspaper article (I think that’s where I saw it?) to call the articles fanfic. There’s a widely-circulated image of the iPad / Mac Tablet that’s been deemed the “most official” one, which is kind of silly since it’s still a conceptual Photoshop. There’s little known about what the device will do, how much it will cost, or whether the thing is even a real product.
So TechCrunch’s recent post, The Apple Tablet rumors the other blogs are afraid to publish, was an especially entertaining read.
