“Research, rumor and a timely update, inform us that Apple will be holding a special event in February 2015,” Mark Reschke reports for T-GAAP. “Exact timing is still unclear, but Tuesday, February 24th, may indeed be the event date, with an as of yet unknown announcement.”
“From what we have gleaned, Tim Cook will revisit Apple Watch, recapping its capabilities and possibly showing off some new features not yet revealed,” Reschke reports. “In addition we will learn about regional launch dates and pricing for all models and wristband options.”
Reschke reports, “The second announcement will be the unveiling of a fan-less 12-inch MacBook.”

Bummer if this is going to be just after Valentine’s Day.
Well I’ll be a suckeggedmule, who would’ve thought.
Thanks for that blast from the past. My dad, who died in 1999, used to say that. Never heard anyone else use that expression.
Although I always heard it as suck egg mule, and the Interwebs seems to agree with that spelling. Found this on Wikipedia:
In Game 4 of that same 1947 Series, Barber memorably described Cookie Lavagetto’s ninth-inning hit to break up Bill Bevens’ no-hitter and win the game at once:
“Wait a minute … Stanky is being called back from the plate and Lavagetto goes up to hit … Gionfriddo walks off second … Miksis off first … They’re both ready to go on anything … Two men out, last of the ninth … the pitch … swung on, there’s a drive hit out toward the right field corner. Henrich is going back. He can’t get it! It’s off the wall for a base hit! Here comes the tying run, and here comes the winning run! … Friends, they’re killin’ Lavagetto… his own teammates… they’re beatin’ him to pieces and it’s taking a police escort to get Lavagetto away from the Dodgers! … Well, I’ll be a suck-egg mule!”
And they say cricket is unfathomable
I remember seeing Cookie as the first manager of the Minnesota Twins.
Suck-egged mule sounds more dissonantly poetic.
They will announce the next operating system “Yosemite Sam”, complete with the full cartoon transformation of all icons, menus and colors.
They started this transformation in version 10.10 but ran out of time and shipped it incomplete.
Just you wait until 10.11 is out. It’s one more better than 10. Maybe they’ll fix bugs too. Naa, Wiley coyote would get em.
Yosemite Sam will also be the new voice of Siri, complete with faux profanity and animalistic insults “yah long-eared idjit galoot varmint.”
I know they say it’s pointless waiting for the next version of Apple hardware, but replacing my 2010 Macbook Pro is definitely on the cards. I’d be a fool not to wait until the end of Feb to see if Broadwell hits the Macbook Pro range, right??
If you can wait, I would probably hang on personally. I would have the same fears as you this close to a potential bump in spec for the same money.
As we’re talking laptops too, the potential improvements in battery life of a Broadwell MBP would justify waiting for me.
I haven’t been paying attention to the rumors, but if they have an 11-inch MBA and a 13-inch MBA, why would they want a 12-inch MBA. Wouldn’t someone who was getting a retina display also want the larger 13-inch screen? I know I would. I want a new MBA. Retina would be nice. But I really do not want a smaller screen.
