Let the Macintosh bloggery flow! It's been too long...

The twelfth of... wait a minute. Twelfth? Is that right? It looks wrong. In fact, I don't think that I've ever actually spelt out the word "twelfth" before. Wait a minute... spelt? Is that a word? Spelled? Umm... let's start this post over:

The 12th of September is likely to be a very special day for Apple's legion of devoted, white-plastic-lovin', obeying-Steve-Jobs'-every-hint-of-a-command, fans. According to trustworthy sources (i.e. The internet), next Tuesday will bring an announcement of epic proportions... or epic disappointments. Either way, it's bound to be epic.

And with the announcement of a scheduled announcement comes, of course, the onslaught of rumor, speculation, and general Mac-fueled excitement. On the rumor table we can find the all of the usual suspects: iPhone, iTunes Movie Store, Widescreen Video iPod... it's all the same stuff. No surprises, right? I'm not so sure.

Let's take this one step at a time. A couple of days ago, Apple quietly released a 24" iMac... Apple's prosumer Mac. It's a pretty impressive machine, yet it slipped by with nary a whisper. So, if something like that gets no coverage, then this Tuesday's announcement is gonna be hot! Conversely, I've just read that the Steve is not going to be giving the announcement. The Steve likes to promote the big stuff personally. A small announcement then? Not quite. MacNN is reporting that Apple filled a patent for a multifunction handheld. iPhone? I'm growing tired of saying it, and it's becoming more and more likely that I'm going to be proven wrong, but Apple is not making a cell phone. A PDA-like device? Oh god... that would be a dream come true. So, clearly that's not going to happen. Then what the hell is it gonna be!? Movie Store. My money is on an iTunes Movie Store.

And only time will tell.

The cube is dead, long live the cube!

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
