Applet tablet rumors enter their fifth year

Is it just me, or have the "Apple tablet rumors" been with us for more than a year now? More than two years?

SNL has been making fun of the UPS commercials lately, but I feel like there are many more Apple tablet rumors than there are commercials of the UPS guy with the lady wig.

Maybe it's just me, but I think the Apple tablet rumors are old enough to be in kindergarten by now.

According to the latest rumors, the Apple tablet will be shipped some time between 2008 and 2012; the price is somewhere between $300 and $3,000; the OS is either based on the iPhone or Mac OS X; and the screen size varies between 8.x and 11.x inches.

(Editor's note: Very little in this report is true, it's all just a rumor. Well, except for that SNL UPS video; that's real.)
