The launch of the iPad Air seems to be the complete opposite of the September release of Apple's iPhone 5s. During that launch, Apple was tight on supplies of its new, high-end iPhone, and not long after the release, the gold version of the device was sold out online and at several store locations. On the other hand, the iPad Air went on sale Friday morning and there appears to be an ample supply of the tablet.

Earlier this week I wrote about the sudden burst of distinctive new campuses  being proposed for Silicon Valley. But while building your own architectural wonderland has now officially become a trend here, it was Apple's proposed spaceship campus that kicked it off.  Alas, getting the thing off the ground is taking longer than expected. During Apple's recent annual shareholder meeting, Chief Executive Tim Cook told the audience that the building wouldn't be ready by 2015, and that now the company was looking at 2016 to occupy it.  "It is taking a little longer," Cook said, in response to a question from a shareholder.  PHOTOS: 10 tech companies to watch in 2013 Cook didn't give any specific reason for the delay, though he did say the company was continuing to fine-tune its plans.

Here's a recap of all the announcements. iPad Air The star of the day without question was the iPad Air, the fifth-generation of the company's 9.7-inch screen tablet. The iPad Air is lighter, thinner and faster than its predecessor at just 1 pound, 0.3 inches thick and now featuring the company's faster 64-bit A7 chip.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gokul Rajaram, who oversaw the development of products for Facebook's advertising business, has been hired away by Square. The defection comes as Facebook is under pressure to prove the effectiveness of advertising on the giant social network to boost its slumping stock price. Advertising accounts for about 85% of Facebook's revenue. Rajaram led the team that created all of the advertising products on Facebook. Mike Hudack, who worked on that team focusing on measuring the effectiveness of ads, will replace him.

Will Apple's rumored iTV challenge Google's YouTube with a built-in video sharing service of its own? It's likely, says Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek, who can be counted as a contributor to the ever-churning Apple rumor mill. On Monday, Misek said in a note to investors that the iTV, whenever it arrives (if it arrives -- Apple hasn't confirmed such a device is on the way), will offer a "YouTube-like" feature that will enable users to easily share video online that they've produced on iPhones and iPads, according to a Bloomberg report.

After spending about a day with the new iPad, it's clear that Apple's third-generation tablet is an improvement over its two stellar predecessors.  Apps launch faster, websites load quicker and the camera actually takes good-looking pictures this time around thanks to a 5-megapixel rear shooter. But there is no question that the best feature found in the new iPad is its display. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, and 3.1 million pixels in total spread across the screen, the new iPad's screen has a higher resolution screen than today's 1080p high definition TVs. The device offers the sharpest, most impressive screen I've seen on any tablet, ever.

The third-generation iPad is the best iPad ever released, and it's also the best overall tablet currently on the market. But is that really saying much? Before the new iPad, the iPad 2 was our top choice among tablets, and since Apple's iPad first arrived in 2010, the product line has defined what a modern tablet should be -- a full multi-touch display up front, speedy performance, tablet-specific apps and video, music and games just a tap (and a credit card purchase) away. The new iPad simply continues the evolution of Apple's tablet with slightly better specs all around, but the user experience of the new device is largely the same as with the iPads that have come before it. Meanwhile, Android tablets -- such as the Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, Motorola's Xyboards and Xooms, Samsung's Galaxy Tabs and options from Acer and Asus -- are continuing to improve, but at this point rivals still can't entirely match the iPad in terms of its hardware refinement, the ease of use and power of the iOS operating system or the diverse selection of apps and entertainment available in the App Store and iTunes.

And the launch date of the Apple iPad 3 will be? For the record, Apple hasn't said yet, but the latest rumor is that the iPad 3 (or whatever it will be called) will be unveiled March 7. On Monday, the website iMore reported that "sources who have been reliable in the past" told it that Apple's next iPad will launch March 7 and pack a retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, a quad-cord processor and "possibly 4G LTE networking. " The retina display, the quad-core CPU and the 4G rumors all line up with the speculation that has been circulating for months, but iMore's report of a March 7 launch date is new. Shortly after, Apple-centric blog The Loop quoted iMore's report and simply added, "Yep.

Apple Inc. won a $30-million contract Tuesday from the L.A. Unified School District, paving the way for the company to provide every student with an iPad in the nation's second-largest school system. The Board of Education voted 6 to 0 on Tuesday to approve the contract after hearing senior staff laud Apple's product as both the best in quality and the least expensive option that met the district's specifications. Tuesday's vote authorized an iPad rollout at 47 campuses. However, by choosing Apple as the sole vendor, the district also made a de facto commitment to spend hundreds of millions of dollars with the Cupertino, Calif.-based digital giant over the next two years.

Over the last year or so since I became a mother, what was my iPad has morphed into the family iPad, has been renamed Elmo by our nearly 2-year-old son, Christopher, and seems to be a bit of a mystery grab bag when I finally get it back in my hands. From his many early FaceTime and Skype chats with "Nana," my mother, he's gotten quite proficient at using it. He now slides the virtual arrow to open it, selects the on-screen folder that reads "Chris' books" and deftly taps through a series of book apps that entertain and engage him. And he knows the ones he wants.

If not, ask someone you know who can recall a time before tablets, about two years back, and they'll tell you all about them. See, once upon a time, those little devices were the hottest consumer electronics product around.  In 2008, we bought 1 million of them , according to market research firm IHS iSuppli .
