According to sources at the Wall Street Journal,and reported by AllthingsD, Apple's new iPad 3, expected to be unveiled on 7th March will be enabled with 4G LTE services. This sounds about right to us at Digital Possibilities.

Having just read Business Insider's live stream of Tim Cook at Goldman sacks, what's striking is that Tim really does seem to have a good handle on where Apple's strengths are, where the market is and where he wants Apple to go.

Path has changed their application to no-longer upload users' contacts without permission. MG Siegler made the point that this is standard practice: Here’s the other key thing: a number of your favorite social apps do the exact same thing.
