Apple to hold special media event on September 12th?

Apple Store“With few details available, the validity of this remains uncertain, but Electronista claims that Apple may be holding a special press event on September 12th, 2006 based on an ‘official’ email sent to Your Mac Life,” arn reports for MacRumors.

arn reports, “The date corresponds to the start of Apple Expo Paris which runs from September 12th to 16th. It has already been announced, however, that there will be no Keynote event for the Apple Expo.”

Note: We have no confirmation of this reported event. Note also that the “Buy a Mac, get a free iPod nano” promo for college students ends on September 16th. Any significance to that chosen date?

  1. other sites are reporting that Apple is setting up a simulcast of this even for their London office (European HQ I believe) which would jibe with an enhancement to European iTunes Media features like Video.

  2. Let the Overzealous Unrealistic Apple Expectation Machine (OUEAM) begin its massive overhype.

    Then, when it’s just a new shuffle or whatever, all the fanboys can start whining in unison about how Apple has somehow personally cheated them out of the goodness of life, and that they need to start taking care of the rabid fanbase by giving anyone who’s ever bought a Mac a free one.

    Oh yes, you all know what I’m talking about.

  3. New iPod phone
    Widescreen gestures enabled video iPod with Wi-Fi
    New form factor media center

  4. I think Steve is going to announce that Apple and Disney (he is on the board there) will be testing a new email tracking system. Everyone who forwards the email will get a new car, free Disney vacation, and $1000 per recipient of the forwarded mail. Think about it people!! Why do you think Apple and Disney merged? It was the Biblical fulfillment of the email tracking prophesy!

    Repent or perish!
