We decided to visit the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco to get a peek at the signage Apple is currently putting up for its iPad event next week. The colorful look and feel reminds us of the original iPad launch back in 2010.

A TV truck around the side of Yerba Buena. Lots of Apple security and local police around.

    ok…just posted this same comment on 9to5mac…taking a closer look at the signage, it looks like a giant eyeball.  almost exactly the same as the retina display icon used on apples own website, not that we needed any more confirmation on the retina display coming to the iPad.

    well done

    So what… No one cares about a retina display…

    yes everyone dose

    Wow good eye there Samuel. If this is coincidence, it’s crazy.

  • Bridger Lowe

    You, my good sir, are a very ignorant person.

    I’m sorry but first off why did you even try to see in. Everyone tries that so of course they would have it ropped off. Heck that’s why the giant ‘blackouts’. 

    second. are you really this desperation for hits that you would post about something so bleach. Especially with hourly updates. Even one of those annoying and lame tip videos from Michael would be better than this nonsense
