    I wonder what the 1 on the iPhone icon means? ;)

    For some reason this seems rather obvious. It's preparation 101 as executed by Apple Inc.

    We get the 1 already.

    Just bring out the iPhone 4s already so that I can hurry up and wait for the iPhone 6 with a bigger screen and LTE capable.

    I blame the Illuminati. They're very clever.

    I need a new and exciting hobby to keep me busy for the next 36 hours, straight. I wish I were 13 again. I'd have just the right hobby in mind, too.

    There are numbers on each icon. Perhaps they have some meaning?

    4, 10(o' clock), 280, 1

    What could they mean??

    4 + 10 + 280 + 1 = 295 --> i.e. N95, possible model number for iPhone 5?!

    So ready for disappointment.

    I know I shouldn't have expectations. But nothing about a 4S version of the iPhone says go out and buy to me. And since 2007 this was my annual ritual, standing in line to buy the next cool iPhone. I don't care about iPads or iMacs, though I have three Macs (two MacBook Pros and a Mac Pro Tower). All I care about is this wonderful little device that has become so integral to my day-to-day life. You'd think after 15 whole months, skipping the regular June/July launch date, they could come out with something slimmer, sleeker and more exciting than the same old phone with a faster chip. I couldn't care less if it recognizes speech. I don't want to share what I want the phone to do with everyone in the room. I just want a bigger screen and a sleeker body. Sorry. But I'm bracing for disappointment here. No, Virginia, there's no real new iPhone. :(

    No, the calendar is the day it is happening, the clock is the time it is happening, the map shows where it is, and the number on the phone probably means one phone (world phone and only one new device.)

    same here bud.

    Very excited for this event, just 1 Day 12 Hours 36 Minutes to go.

    Bring on the 5th generation iPhone! :D

    Also guys, who here thinks Apple might slip the next-gen iPhone in their www.apple.com/iphone page?

    The map most certainly does mean something. The stuff on the Maps icon is not just random roads and a number, it is the actual (simplified) layout of Apple's campus. 280 is Interstate 280, which runs through Cupertino right by Apple HQ. Hence the Maps icon on the invitation tells us where the event is.

    It means iPhone 5 will be so amazing that every time you look at it you will stand in shock from amazement and miss all your calls.

    Its no wonder computer geeks (like me) never get a date...

    Nothing really newsworthy. Just standard precedure.

    Now if they added a comma in there...

    No sweat, I just learned that the other day when these crazy icon interpretation threads started.

    4th of October at 10 on the clock, off I280 (which is where Apple is located). The 1 is a random number for a missed call/voice mail which if anything suggests the new notification system, which is lining up to be a killerish new feature that has finally arrived
