Apple announced a 128-GB version of the fourth-generation iPad with Retina Display on Tuesday. This latest version of Apple's popular tablet computer, which doubles the capacity of the previous top-end model, is now available with WiFi as well as WiFi-plus-4G service. While Apple has been pushing its products further into the cloud, the new iPad seems to be targeting more down-to-earth usage. "It's not about running programs -- it's about storing stuff," said Roger L. Kay, principal analyst at Endpoint Technologies Associates.
