With MacWorld San Francisco approaching, it appears Apple Stores are gearing up for the "big release"...

Deliveries are expected on Monday, which can not -- under any circumstances -- be opened until after 10am PST on Tuesday, Jan 7th.. Small 6-inch display acrylics have already arrived and are to be used to display... something... and significant changes are to be made to the store floors on Tuesday night.

Something is coming... (but it may just be updated Airports, or not...)

Meanwhile, Apple's Sales Training site is down... until Noon PST on Jan 7th.

OK, I give.. it's a Blue____ iP__! ;'}

hehehe... the anticipation is killing, but my data and sources are reliable enough I'll stand on this one.. I'd even place sizable $ bets.

One thing is for sure.. if you buy Apple right now, and sell on the 6th.. You will make a killing (as the stock usually skyrockets on announcements likes these!)

Where are they getting this information? Will the Apple Stores be showing the keynote? If so, I'll drive 15min to the original Apple Store in Mclean, VA.

Selling products the same time as they are announced at the keynote is a genius idea. There is no better way to spawn massive amounts of impulse buying. If there is a color ipod that will be available on Tuesday, then it will be sold out before Steve Jobs can walk off the stage.

Traditionally, AAPL is always flat or down immediately after keynotes.

However, the 6th is not the day to sell, as the new product announcement will occur on the 7th.

It will be interesting to see if that changes this year with the stock depressed to so near the cash valuation.

There has been a slight edge up over the last week, but whether it is AAPL following the market, or MWSF anticipation (which is what traditionally evaporates share value after keynotes) remains to be seen.

Can't be opened until 10 AM PST? Is that on Monday or Tuesday? Surely Jobs will want to keep the lid on until his keynote tuesday.

Hmm...display acrylics - that would definitely be for a small new device (or upgraded iPod), not for any computer. It also seems to rule out a set-top box since they probably wouldn't display it vertically like that... Apple is really tight-lipped about this one - I have a feeling this one's going to be mind-boggling. Definitely on par with FP iMac. The few financial analyst types who've gotten a sneak peek say it's going to blow everyone away.

Well that doesn't sound _so_ exciting, but then an mp3 player didn't sound that good in the first place.

Whatever it is the insanely great part will be sonething the rest of us have never thought of.

Ha! You think you're at risk of sleeping through it? It's on at 4:00 AM local time here :) Not sure what time it will be on in "the city at the edge of Forever" though :D

yeah like the other guy said. apples stock doesnt soar through the roof. sales may but stock doesnt. apples stock usually doesn nothing after macworld or it will go down. apple really isnt a good stock, i sure wouldnt own any. its like what most people say, people usually people own apple stock because of an emotional attachment to the company. now i would probably buy some if apple dropped to 13 or 12 because its bound go go up.

Get out those credit cards everyone!
i dont believe that, those are expensive to make. I have one, and its only good for displays and lockdowns so no own steals your ipod. its big and i dont recommend it for a holder for you ipod. i doubt apple will sell them to the public.

The iPod is already out...while I also think they will be updated in some way...why wouldn't they be able to display these iPods the same way they do the ones now..

What im thinking is a cell phone...
steve had been quoted saying "The PDA market is dead but there is hope for cell phones"

just my 2 cents

good call, but apple would not use the same cases to show the ipods if they were updates. we had a huge acryrilc case the our ipod went in to show. when apple came out with the new ipods, apple sent us a completly new acrylic case that had an itunes 3 logo and said 4000 songs in your pocket with the new font istead of the itunes 2 logo with it saying 1000 songs in your pocket with apple garamond. apple could have something new, or they are gonna start displaying new ipods in smaller cases. we will just have to wait and see. all i know is that im very exciting about this macworld.
