    Would iPad 3 Spoil Apples Under the Tree?

    iStockphoto

    The release of a new version of Apple’s tablet in February might rankle those who give or receive an iPad this month.

    The company may be gearing up for its release of the iPad 3 in just two months,according to a report by Richard Gardner, an analyst with Citigroup Global Markets, citing several unnamed sources.  The news might seem a cruel joke to those giving and receiving an iPad this month, but it’s unlikely to keep gadget buyers from holding off, analysts say.

    How to Beat Wedding Gift Sticker-Shock

    iStockphoto

    Designer kitchen knives, pricey electronics, upscale furniture, camping gear. Wedding registry trends are running more toward big-ticket items these days, giving guests good reason to eye that wedding invite with trepidation.

    “You wouldn’t believe what I’ve seen on registries: the matching sea-worthy kayaks, the shares of a vacation home, the $10,000 grills that get built into your deck,” says Jodi R.R. Smith, the chief executive of Boston-based etiquette consulting firm Mannersmith and author of “The Etiquette Book: A complete Guide to Modern Manners.” “They can register for anything these days, and sometimes they get a little slap-happy with the registry guns.”

    As a story in today’s Wall Street Journal points out, the shift is largely a result of couples marrying at older ages and, for more than 70%, after they have already been living together. More input from the groom has also driven additions of gear like barware, tents and flat-screen TVs.

    Which all prompts the question: If the happy couple can shoot for the moon, how far should the guests go to appease them? PayDirt talked to Smith about how to manage your budget, and the couple’s expectations.

    Pay Dirt: Some of these registry gifts seem unrealistically expensive. Are you really obligated to spend that much?
