    Maybe it's only privileged to the Super Secret Apple Rumors staff at Apple.

    :D

    I really hope they've just kept everything secret or something! I really hope something new and exciting happens- even if that product has no implications for me. I want to be wowed, but I fear we may have to waut until June or later.

    I'm starting to think Apple has a nice Apple fools joke up their sleeve.

    I have a feeling Apple likes a good joke more than they like a good secret.

    Apple's 30th anniversary is on April 1st (April Fool's Day). There is no date set for a media event of any sort though.:rolleyes:

    I don't understand how Apple could not celebrate at all. I mean loot at their 20th anniversary! The TAM! Come on Apple, wow us with something brand new and exciting!! You're 30 years old!

    IIRC Apple usually posts the announcements exactly 1 week before the show? They will probably do the same thing now.

    My money is on a Special Video featuring Jobs, Woz, and some other Apple originals talking about the company on a special free iTunes Music Store Video. Along with the release of a special edition iPod and a coupon for 1 free song download to all that have purchased iTMS content within the previous 30 Days. Sounds about right, something that wasn't expected, but isn't anything major either. Maybe they will give out free stuff at the Apple Stores as well. I kind of think they might release 10 full length films (Pixar/Disney) and the new iPod Video (kind of a longshot). I would be happy just to have a site makeover and maybe some new apple widgets and a coupon for a free download.

    Its a super secret exclusive party and none of you are invited. No way would Apple lets this go down without something really special. When you turn 22, 27, or 29 no on cares. But when you turn the big 30, 40, 50, 60 or any other time you start a new decade that is a big deal.

    Well the last time Apple changed decades at 20 years old we had the TAM. Apple will definitely do something special.
