“Well, there’s apparently a big to-do coming up this weekend. It’s Apple’s 30th Birthday and we’re starting to hear some rumors. First off, there’s the touchscreen iPod. Oh, ho ho. What a wonder that will be. This has a 80-85% chance of actually appearing, and is one of the things I would love to see. Clearly, this would also mean that there will be full movies available on iTunes this weekend, which would be just swell. An anonymous source told me, back when the Hi-Fi was coming out, that the touchscreen iPod was months away, if it were ever to appear, so who knows,” Gizmodo writes.
“Apparently, Jobs and his Flying Monkeys were in talks to get good movie content for the big AV launch. We shall see, won’t we,” Gizmodo writes. “Next, we have the iPod phone… Then we have new MacBooks… A Mac Tablet? …Strangely enough, I haven’t heard of anyone being invited to the ‘launch’ this weekend nor have I heard that it is actually happening. Maybe Apple doesn’t like us, but the radio silence is absolutely weird.”
