All you iGadget freaks, it is that time of the year again when each and everyone of you is anticipating what’s going to be released in Apple’s event today at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where Apple is expected to release the next generation of their tablet, the iPad 3. And, we are back with our list of resources for the iPad 3 live coverage. (this time it is 20+ resources – double the earlier 10+ lists ;))
