Sir Elton outs iPad 2 release date

Pop star wants fondleslab for Skyping

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Several readers emailed us this morning claiming that Elton John today suggested that the iPad 2 will be on sale in April.

The Grammy Award-winning star's comments came on BBC One's breakfast show this morning. Unfortunately, we can't confirm his words: the programme isn't available in BBC iPlayer, and no one's uploaded the segment to YouTube yet.

But the gist of it is that Sir Elton is looking forward to buying an iPad in April so he can use Skype.

Conspiracy theorists immediately suggested Elton is waiting until then because he knows the iPad 2 will be out and that it'll have a webcam on board.

The rain falling on this particular parade is that Elton's intelligence need not have come straight up the yellow brick road from Cupertino, but just what he's been reading about the iPad 2 on the interweb. April is a good educated guess since it'll be a year on from the release of the current iPad. ®

Thanks to readers Grant Gibson and all the others for the tip
