Jizmo – Gaming, Gadgets, News and Reviews with a touch of Smut

After a long hiatus, we’re back in time to report on the next generation iPad which is soon to be unveiled in less than 12 hours. No we won’t be there live – we’re too underground for that. Instead we’ll ramble on about what’s to be, and add some speculation to boot.
