record for prediction
Well, Sir Elton has predicted things correctly in the past ... he did predict he was going to be knighted to the US media before the official announcement ... though he may have had some insider information on that one!
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 …
I might have been quoted saying the same thing, using no other insider info than that from El Reg. But as soon as I consider an iPad, I think of Apple's control fetish and hope for a viable alternative I can get for my techophobe mother. Before April. Please.
Why would anyone think this warbler would know anything about the release date or capabilities of some as unreleased gadget? More likely he wants one in April because it's his birthday / anniversary / something and he thinks he can Skype on an iPad because its a magical, revolutionary computery thing so you must be able to do so.
Where will El Reg get it's insider tips from next? CBBC?

All you have to do is mention apple , give them some praise and then many media outlets will be on the case and you'll be back in the papers. (The guardian / BBC Im looking at you mainly)
I doubt you would get the same reaction saying I prefer HP to daddies.
Remember theres no such thing as bad news if it gets these people some attention.
