“Apple’s plans to hold a special event next week have sent analysts into a flutter of prognostication, casting their cards for the future,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK. “American Technology Research analyst Shaw Wu expects Intel-related news from Apple’s ‘fun’-focused event. He advises investors to build their holdings in the company. The analyst expects Apple will use the event to launch a world-first – a movie download service through iTunes. He said: ‘We believe there is a greater-than-50 per cent chance that Apple will announce its first, full-length feature films available for download on iTunes.’ He doesn’t yet believe the company will release the so-called ‘true video iPod’, a device that’s mooted to have a 3.5-inch colour screen and digital controls… Wu states: ‘There is a chance that Steve Jobs will make an announcement that no one anticipated. We will not attempt to guess what it is and let Steve surprise us.'”
