Although there was no Apple iPad 3 at CES on display, there has been a rumor going around that the Apple iPad 3 might be launched in a few months, March of 2012. The new iPad 3 also might be very similar to the iPad 2, but with improved hardware overall. Apple already knows the next iPad 3 is going to be a success, just like it’s iPad and iPad 2 predecessors. It’s no surprise that there won’t be any sneak peeks before it is released.
Below are some rumored Apple iPad 3 specs:
• An improved Apple A5 dual-core 1GHz processor or a possible A6 quad-core processor.
• Retina Display, 9.7-inch QXGA 2048 x 1536p resolution HD display.
• Super-sharp display with 326 ppi (pixels per inch) or greater. iPad 2 is 132 ppi.
• 4G LTE radio for faster internet speeds.
• Larger 14,000mAh battery for the iPad 3. The iPad 2 battery is rated at 6930 mAh.
• 10 hours of video watching over Wi-Fi.
• Improved HD Facetime front camera and 8 megapixel or higher rear camera, like the iPhone 4S.
• Storage options could range from 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, and a possible 128 GB with iCloud services.
• Thicker casing.
• Stronger glass comparable to Gorilla Glass 2.
• AT&T and Verizon carriers.
• Addition of Siri.
Although these are just rumores on iPad 3 specifications. We can expect an iPad 3 arrival sometime in March 2012, and a possible iPhone 5 in the pipeline. The iPad 3 specs sound good and we will all wait impatiently for the next release.

It's always exciting when you see technology in futuristic/sci-fi movies come to life. The most recent example of this would be Samsung's aptly-named LCD Smart Window, shown off at CES 2012.
Imagine looking through an office window, only to tap it and update your twitter account about what the weather is like today (which you'd be able to see for yourself through that very same window!). Or, picture yourself browsing a store and using this touch-screen to check for products and prices. Alternatively, you could also be the navigator of a spaceship in outer space, or a secret agent looking through files! No matter what the scenario, this touchscreen-television just looks cool.
Fret not, secret agents, as this see-through wonder is one-sided; people on the other side can't peek at what you're up to. You'll need ambient light to see the screen, but there is also a special transparent BLU (back light unit) for when lighting is inaccessible.
Unfortunately there are no solid release dates or prices yet for this Window Panel, but rumors state that productinon could start soon.
