Like we said about an hour or so ago, today's Apple event has all the normal hallmarks. As usual the last minute rumors and confirmations are already hitting the web and there is still about 15 minutes to go!
So let's recap some of the big ones:
No new iPod Touch (delayed launch) - could be due to camera issues reported earlier
iPod Nano - Getting bigger screen and Nike + improvements not larger capacity
HD video to the iPhone - Rumor is help up by Harmon Kardon listing HD output as an option on one of their dock products.
iPod Classic - Getting a 160GB flavor
And that is it for now.
If these are true then there will be even less to talk about today than usual. That is unless Sir Steve of Jobs shows up, and then it will be pandemonium in the house and anything he says will make news.
No word on if the fabled Apple Tablet will be talked about here but my sources say it is doubtful. This should be mostly about the iPod line with a few iTunes upgrades as well.
Ah Apple has a Carnival...Um I mean event planned for today. The net will be awash with the gushing of the technical press. What I wonder is, is the launch of another iPod really that big of a deal that it needs its own event?
Probably not but then again this IS Apple. From what I can put together there is going to be very little that is ground-breaking. We will see a new iPod touch and iPod Nano. They will have larger capacities; the Touch will have a 3 MP camera, and a few new features.
Apple should announce its new complete music service called Cocktail. This is supposed to give people the same feel as a CD or Album (if you are older than 30). Again not much to crow about but hey, this is Apple.
So today's event will be filled with lackluster announcements that will be eaten up by the hungry press and presented with all the precision of a Cirque De Sole event. But hey, this is Apple and Apple events are fun to watch not matter what they announce.
We will be following some of the live feeds coming out of the even and reporting on things that are (or are not) important or ground breaking.
