    Image from Apple's September 1st media event invitation
    Engadget reports that Apple has issued media invitations for a special event to be held on Wednesday, September 1st in San Francisco. The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific Time.

    Apple is expected to introduce updates to its iPod lines, including a FaceTime-enabled iPod touch. The company is also rumored to be introducing a significantly redesigned $99 Apple TV device, possibly renamed "iTV", as well as 99-cent TV show rentals.

    OK, I guess we were all wrong about the date of this event.

    What about iLife 10/11? A while back there was talk of the new iLife to have a truly unique new feature. Maybe this guitar has something to do with that.

    Bring on the new iPod Touch. Who knows, maybe it will have a 3G option :)

    Awesome news. And I love that guitar image!

    Looks like a mostly music focus, which isn't surprising.

    Maybe they will announce GarageBand for iPad.

    I mean, it has a mic for recording scratch tracks, could sell loops as in app purchases, and could have a touchscreen midi keyboard.

    Sounds cool to me!

    Should be good! I'm not in the market for anything new, but if the new Apple TV (iTV or whatever) is cheap like the rumours suggest, then I'm definitely going to buy one!

    Hmmm...I smell a Garage Band update. Must be iLife '11, iTunes update, possibly the rumored "iTV", and iPod Touch update.

    Looks like a "Music Event" - Touchscreen Nanos?

    Want a new AppleTV - mine burned out months ago (used it almost every day and made all my purchases on it to sync back to my PC server).

    An old Thinkpad I've been using in its place doesn't quite cut it... :eek:

    All right! - sooner is better than later for sure. I'd given up on an early show so this was a nice kind of surprise :)

    If they announce and have the iTV for sale immediately, I'll be in serious luck (in case the UK has problems selling it as an iTV).

    If it's released, I'll be buying it :D

    They probably moved the date so Apple's news rides over the weekend, to block some of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android Tablet) news coming on the 3rd.

    Mass media is a large free marketplace for super companies, and Apple knows how to use it to their advantage.

    WOOHOOO!!!! But since it's a media event I doubt we'll see the rumored new MacBook Air.
