BBC holding an event at the same time as the iPad 2 launch, are they linked?

The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) is holding an unspecified press event on Wednesday March 2nd at 6pm GMT, which coincides exactly to the Apple iPad 2 launch event.

Mr Fry was one of the first people to get their hands on the original iPad last year so it all starts to make sense, well a little anyway!

iPad 2 to go carbon fiber. Maybe. (See footnote.)

Daring Fireball's John Gruber has added some carefully hedged speculation about the iPad 2 going carbon fiber to the mix:

And even if I were to off-handedly mention such speculation, I’d do so in a footnote and take pains to emphasize the uncertain nature of the information and the second-hand status of the sources thereof.

He also weighed in on some of the back and forth iPad 2 rumors, saying the hi-res display was never on the table and wagering SD wasn't either, so they couldn't have been "cut".
