So no new iPods next Tues. Aug. 7 (they say). The next likely candidate is September 18. -Back-to-school discount on current iPods (clearing old stock) ends on Sun. Sept. 16. -Sept. 18 is a Tuesday (frequent Apple release day) Could be earlier. However, the week before is Tues. 9/11 (maybe a PR no-no, still). Before that and you're overlapping the back-to-school discount by 2 weeks. Last (5.5G) iPod update was on Tues., Sept. 12 2006. So, we're about in the same ballpark. Hope we see a touchscreen one, not just a fatter Nano.
