There were three Apple related stories that caught my eye yesterday, so I though I would just combine them into one. I’ve been out of the loop for a few days, so this may be old news to some of you.
What will it be?
Wednesday, September 7th, at 10:00am, there will be a special press-only event at the Moscone Center here in San Francisco (1 block away from my house). The invitation reads in part “1,000 songs in your pocket changed everything, Here we go again.” What could it mean? Is it the much anticipated iPhone? Is it a video iPod? Is it a PDA? Is it all three? Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth.
UPDATED: Apprently Motorola is having an event the same day. They are sending out an invite that says: “The â€˜Device formerly known as the cell phoneâ€™ is ready for its next act. Please join us for an evening of fun, music and evolution. September 7th…”.
Any day now we should be seeing an upgrade to Apple’s .mac service. Rumor has it that it will include an updated version of Backup, Apple’s data backup application, along with some .mac exclusive widgets.
mini test drive, or not
The third story in this post was going to be about Apple’s newest promotion. A 30-day Mac mini test drive. The Story has been covered by numerous sites, but the promotion has apparently been cancelled. I can no longer find any mention of it on the Apple site.
