How to know it is time for a new tablet

My aging iPad has been a thorn in my side for the last month, and yesterday while I was co-working with a friend at a local coffee shop, it did everything in its power to tell me that it is time to find a replacement. Even doing something simple like checking Facebook was making the poor thing lock up, and at one point I found myself connecting my Bluetooth keyboard to my iPhone 5 so I could continue to be somewhat functional, since I had already had to reboot the iPad three or four times when it would randomly lock up.

It is possible that my iPad knows that Apple will announce upgrades tomorrow? I am sure it is just a coincidence…

Here is the link for tomorrow’s announcements scheduled for 10 a.m. Pacific Time:
