Sadly, this isn’t a joke. SkyBet, part of the UK’s Sky network (News Corp.) is taking bets on iPad 3 specs.  I imagine 9to5Mac readers and Apple employees could make some extra money on this if it is legal in your area.

Update: it has been pulled.  A statement from SkyBet:

We suspended betting last night after an immediate run of money on many of the markets.

Helen Jacob said: “Within a half an hour of the markets opening we took a flood of money including a string of very chunky, three-figure bets. If the money is correct, then the new hardware will definitely not have a new carbon fibre casing, will not be called the iPad 2S and will have 128GB of storage!”
