As the September 5th event approaches, the rumors continue to build, with last minute claims and "leaks". One popular theme is a claim of an outline of the keynote speech. This has been claimed before a number of times, and has always been fake.

We've published the latest one for interest only, and don't believe it to be true. The outline is published in the discussion thread for this story.

September 5th

Announcement of iPhone ringtones sold on iTunes Store, for $0.49 each.

Announcement of iPhone games. At the time of the announcement, only Texas Hold'em will be ready, while Apple is working closes with EA to port the iPod games onto the iPhone.

Announcement of iTunes MobiStore, a "lite" version of the iTunes Store, accessible on the iPhone. It appears as an icon on the iPhone's main screen along with the other icons.

Announcement of the iPhone "Radio" apllication. Apple teamed up with Live365.com for this. You will be able to listen to any Live365.com internet radio stream. A button to buy a specific song that you hear will also be included. The button is programmed to only appear when a song plays that is available on the iTunes MobiStore.

Next up is new iPod announcements:

iPod - 3.5 inch widescreen
touchscreen interface, with operating system as previously seen in interface videos leaked on MacRumors. CoverFlow is included.
Built-in Wi-fi allowing access to iTunes MobiStore.
The "Radio" application is included.
Encasing is aluminum, same as iPod nano. (Silver Aluminum and Black Aluminum are the only colors)
There is a black rim around the encasing
There is a button below the screen. It is the same shape as the iPhone button, except it is a little smaller. This is the only button on the unit (besides the usual Hold slider).
30GB $300, 80GB $400.


iPod deca
Operating system as previously seen in interface videos leaked on MacRumors. CoverFlow is included.
The images purported by GearLive to be the new iPod nano are actually images of the iPod deca.
Built-in Wi-fi allowing access to iTunes MobiStore.
The "Radio" application is included.
Encasing is aluminum, same as iPod nano. (Color scheme reported by 9to5Mac.com is correct)
You will be able to watch videos, just like the regular iPod.
Only available in 10GB format, $250.

iPod nano
Same as previous generation, only difference is the new Operating system, as stated above.
Same colors as previous generations.
Price drop.
NEW 1GB $79, 2GB $119, 4GB $175, No 8GB.

One More Thing

Beatles albums will now be on iTunes. Paul McCartney comes out in a surprise appearance and sings "Hey Jude".

The end.

Sounds believable. The only thing strange is a discontinued shuffle. Obviously this is fake, but cool ideas.

10GB? Flash memory comes in 2, 4, 8, 16 etc. "MobiStore"? "iPod Deca"?? This fake isn't even worth reading.

I have four reasons why I think this is fake:

1. I have seen more people than ever wearing their 2g Shuffle. It has been doing better than ever.
2. One operating system controlled by touch or wheel? I don't think so...
3. The iPod deca in 10gb flash? No. It doubles in gigabytes starting at one. 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, 16gb, etc.
4. Apple wouldnt bring the nano down to its previous capacities. But price drops do sound like a good idea.

I was hoping to make a number five saying that Paul McCartney is touring somewhere else, but he's not.

McCartney only one song?

Why would Paul McCartney only play one song? All other guest artists, Alicia Keyes, Sarah Mclaughlin, US, and most notably John Mayer all played more than one song. I could see Hey Jude in addition to his latest hit Dance Tonight as that's a pretty uptempo song, also it promotes his new album even more.

But yes that "outline" kinda does blow. It just tells us what we all want/rumor sites have reported.

One of the only good guesses in this "outline" is Paul McCartney being there. He admitted in a recent New Yorker interview that he was supposed to play at the MacWorld 07 Keynote, but pulled out due to family commitments. It's not unreasonable to think that he'll be rescheduled for another Apple event.

2 + 8 = 10

And they call it 'MiniStore' already.

Not that I think this is real; although it is much better than the last 'outline'.

Paul McCartney is due to appear on UK Radio 1 LIVE in the studio.
It's been well publicised over the past week on national radio.

Unless he "jets" over to Cali, I highly doubt he'll be there

deca and nano? hmmm... a bit OTT no?

We know the Mac Pro is thirteen months old today, but we still have no updates for you. Please continue to enjoy the nearly two-year-old graphics options." :rolleyes:

Ringo will be there, and he'll sing about getting high with his friends.

The only certain truth is that, as always before an announcement, the rumors and expectations build up so much that we end up somewhat disappointed. We keep inflating the balloon until...

If it was Deci, it would make more sense, but Deca would imply that it's really big compared to the full-sized iPod.

These "outlines" are always ridiculously over-the-top

iPod 6G and new nanos, that's all I'm aiming for, anything else is a bonus, if you start hoping for inbuilt digital radio, ringtones (although that is possibly true), wifi, a mobile store, touchscreen (again possibly true) and all the other crap that gets made up your bound to get disappointed, keep it simple and your bound to be surprised on the actual event :)

Apple won't be updating any of their macs, they had that chance when they updated the iMacs.
