    On Tuesday, CNBC confirmed that the iPad 3 will, in fact, be unveiled next week as long suspected. What wasn't expected, however, is the news that Apple will supposedly hold an event in New York City - not California - to raise the curtain on the refreshed tablet.

    Regardless of the location of its media event, upon news of this "confirmed" iPad 3 launch, shares of AAPL made another new all-time high of $532.

    It now appears as though Apple's iPad 3 will arrive almost one-year to the day Steve Jobs took the stage to personally unveil the iPad 2 in March of 2011.

    In recent days, a significant wave of clues has inundated the marketplace suggesting that the device was just around the corner. Arguably, the biggest tip came over the weekend when Best Buy lowered the price of the iPad 2 by $50 - a tell-tale sign that something was up.

    Apple, per its standard operating procedures, has kept its lips sealed on any and all information surrounding the iPad 3. But the clues from its retail partners and the buzz from the supply chain proved sufficient for the rumor mill to get another one right.

    "Apple has just sent out invitations for an Apple event in San Francisco at 10AM PST on Wednesday March 7th". The event is being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco - NOT New York - !!!
