Laying odds on potential Steve Jobs’ Apple ‘Showtime’ event announcements

“Apple’s having another one of its famous, Steve Jobs-hosted events in San Francisco on September 12, with the event slogan (“It’s Showtime”) drawing extreme attention. What’s up Apple’s sleeve this time? Here’s what the smart money is betting on,” Christopher Null writes for Yahoo! Tech.

Null’s odds:
• iTunes Gets Movie Downloads – odds 1:5
• Apple Set-Top Box – odds 2:1
• Apple ‘iPhone’ – odds 15:1
• Cube 2.0 – odds 40:1
• Something Lame – odds 5:1

Null writes, “Don’t forget that it’s almost certain that Apple will announce more than one of these things, in addition to the usual stuff like iTunes software updates (“Now you can turn volume up and down!”) and various upgrades to old hardware. A 24-inch iMac has already been announced, as well.”
