Apple on Tuesday emailed invitations to members of the press for what is expected to be the launch of the iPad 3 on March 7. The invitation to the event in San Francisco doesn't say specifically that the next iPad will make its debut, but does feature an image of a hand touching the iPad's Calendar app icon for March 7, along with the message, "We have something you really have to see. And touch. " The Calendar app icon is between the Maps and Keynote app icons.

The court ruled unanimously in favor of a state law passed last summer that abolished redevelopment agencies and voted 6 to 1 to strike down a companion measure that would have allowed the agencies to continue if they shared their revenues. More than 400 redevelopment agencies will cease to exist after Feb. 1.
