Minutiae is spelled with an "e" at the end. What, no editors on this site?

re: iPad 3 Invites And The Art Of Minutia
Minutiae is the plural form of the word. The author picked each detail out individually. Individually = singular = minutia. So, moron, don't correct grammar when you haven't a clue yourself.

re: iPad 3 Invites And The Art Of Minutia
Minutia is singular, referring to a single bit of trivia. Minutiae is plural. First usage should eefinitely be plural. Second usage, commenting on one specific item can be singluar. Lends an air of mystery.

Still point taken. The minutiae of copy editing sometimes get lost in our digital world.

What if the "7" is cryptic and not onlyrefers to March 7th but also a 7" tablet, could you really put it past apple?

The reason the three apps we see in the dock are maps, calendar and keynote is that: The first app tells where the presentation will be held the calendar tells when and keynotes tells us that it will be a keynote presentation.

Where when and what.

If you look at any photo of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on Apple's website, you will find that the calendar app always has a 7. Just thought I would point that out.

I believe nothing I read and only half of what I see. I'm a hard sell on this sort of thing and don't believe we're seeing evidence indicating anything other than discrepancy in photography.
