“Working at an Apple retail store in the past, I felt compelled to share some thoughts on the rumors hinting of a major event coming this weekend at the Apple retail stores,” Mark Reschke writes for TGAAP.
“Taking in the smoke from the rumor mill, don’t get excited about Apple launching some form of anniversary Mac hardware, or delivering some surprise Apple HDTV product, that just isn’t happening. Apple does not waste hundreds of millions of dollars in free press when launching into new markets, and pulling some surprise Mac launch over the weekend would be doing exactly that,” Reschke writes. “What’s more likely is a software/cloud initiative.”
Reschke writes, “Based on the recording industry speculation, coupled with Amazon and Google’s music lockers, Apple rolling out their all-new iTunes music services for Mac OS X and iOS seems the best bet for this weekends event. Looking at Apple’s roadmap crystal ball, there is an outside chance Apple would bring new iPods to the stores.”
