Hey everyone. I have some news to share about the rumored iPad Mini and why I don't think the event will be on the 17th. For the past three iOS device announcements, the event invitations have always gone out to the press on 8 days before the announcement date. (The Tuesday of the preceding week for those not mathematically inclined.) If the event was on the 17th, the invites would have had to go out today. That obviously didn't happen. I'm not saying they won't go out tomorrow, but to me the chances of a Oct 17th event are looking pretty slim. Tell me what your thoughts are on this here.
