Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
iPad 3 Coming February 24th ? –
We have seen a report from the Chinese Economic Times newspaper which claims that chinese manufactures are trying to have the iPad 3 ready for the anniversary of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ birthday ( February 24th).
The newspapers claims they got the report from source with in the manufacturing line :
After the iPhone 4S successfully took the tech market by storm, the iPad3 is widely expected to be Apple’s first hit product to be released next year. Industry sources said the first shipment of the iPad3 could exceed 4 million units. Because it is a new gadget, it is taking time for makers in the supply chain to raise their yield rates. The sources said all OEM and ODM makers have exercised great caution in ensuring the smooth operations of their production lines.
The report then goes on to say have manufactures who are making the iPad 3 are asking employees to work over time or not take any holidays over the Lunar New Year holiday.
Suggesting employees in its iPad division take only five days holiday
Reports say at least some employees will have to work over holidays
Simplo Technology , Amer International Group
Asked employees to shorten holidays
February seems a little early compared to other reports and rumours and also we believe this date could be the launch or pre order date as it is a Friday and it is very unlikely for Apple to unveil / have an event on a friday
