Marketplace has a new podcast for kids, "Million Bazillion!" EPISODE OUT NOW

Here’s the iPad Mini, probably

John Moe Aug 16, 2012

Remember when people were surprised by Apple announcements? Like, the company rolls out… a phone! (spit take) What?! Where did that come from?! Now, we see the train coming a mile away. A number of sites, while still citing anonymous sources, say they are confident that leaked images of the iPad Mini are the real thing and that this is what we will be seeing at the Apple launch event on September 12th.

The link there is from 9 to 5 Mac but there is also much the same information from Apple devotee John Gruber who thinks it will resemble the iPad more than a middle point product between the Pad and the Phone. Gizmodo did its own mockup based on what was being widely speculated.
