    This Hawaii series is STRESSING ME OUT! Why am I sitting here, watching this video podcast, when I could be sitting on a beach enjoying cocktails? Why do I care about the newest silicon device, when I could be enjoying the feeling of the element between my bare toes on some gorgeous beach somewhere? For the price of this silly thing on my desk, I could be sitting there in Hawaii, wearing my own ridiculous shirt, without a care about any of the crap I cling to daily on these various backlit displays.

    That’s it. I am selling my Mac, my iPhone, and my iPad, and I am COMING TO HAWAII!!

    Hey Gary!

    Glad you’re enjoying your vacation in Hawaii. This video makes me chuckle because everyone I know that has/uses Apple products asks this question. I am guilty myself of wondering when to buy. Your tip about the MacRumors website is a good one, but here is a link for that site that narrows it down with more specific Apple product release info:

    Hope this helps someone who is pondering their next Apple purchase!

    How do you feel about the Apple tv… Update comming soon or not?

      Well, using the technique I show in the video:
      (Look up in Wikipedia)
      Apple TV 1: March 2007.
      Apple TV 2: September 2010.
      So is Apple TV 3 likely in 2011? Probably not.
      It just doesn’t make sense for Apple to release a new Apple TV this year.
