Apple launches new iPads; they don't get any cheaper

The iPad Air was launched today and it is lighter and more powerful than its predecessors. Pricing? Same old, same old. The iPad Mini 2 with Retinal Display also made it out the gate but it's going to work out $100 more than the old versions. They will, no doubt, sell like crazy this holiday season, but you might want to think about Amazon and Google and what they have on deck.

Is Apple prepping an iPad Mini 2?

Although Apple has yet to complete its global rollout of its original iPad Mini, Cupertino is apparently prepping an iPad Mini 2.
