In the past year, the Ipad has become the music-making device du jour as developers have embraced the extra processing power and screen size to push what was thought possible on a mobile device.

So it is with a creeping sense of excitement that Apple appear to be gearing up for a major announcement on the Ipad on the 16th. As it is unlikely that they are going to cancel the thing, a new Ipad seems to be on the way.

There will be a live feed of the event at 10an PDT which you can link to here.
