With the media event coming up on October 12th, rumors continue to fly and resourceful users are searching for any evidence of upcoming products. Rumors range from Video iPods to PowerMac revisions.

One link that is floating around as "evidence" for a Video iPod is an old link left over on one of Apple's individualized country sites.

http://www.apple.com/za/itunes/video/

The page is entitled "iTunes + iPod Video" and appears to link to a video which is not available. On first glance it appears to be a new ad. However, this is an old "iTunes + iPod" promotional video that was shown at WWDC 2004 and not a new ad featuring a Video iPod. The video was shown during the WWDC 2004 keynote speech (7:55).

The wait is still on. More rumors/details as they become available.

It's sad that something like this had to be posted on the front page :(
Very sad! I live in South Africa... we get products a month late, support is weak, we have no adds for ANY apple product .... there is no way in H%LL this could ever be real!

So if it said "iTunes & iPod commercial", we are expecting an iPod commercial? If it said "iTunes & iPod ad", we are expecting an "iPod ad"?

Hmmm... that link was pretty pathetic. It's just a link to an old ad with a VIDEO (i.e. Quicktime movie) of an iPOD AD hence "iPod Video".

I'm not holding out for iPod Videos - as Steve Jobs said, what are we going to put on them? I'm sure walking around watching music trailors is really cool :rolleyes:

I think this media event is to do with new Pro machines. About time. Any new iPod would kill the iPod nano honeymoon in one fell swoop.

This is getting ugly...

look for stuff and your sure to find it... whether it's there or not...

I think I'm going to hide in a hole until the 12th... maybe go play with my PowerBook 520c or my new Cube...

As already mentioned, Steve said it wasn't going to happen.. Movies would be a joke on them..... Too small, why not just watch it on a laptop? Music videos would get boring.. But if video podcasts keep coming, that might get people interested.....

nahhh..

Stupid rumor..

Think about it

The more i think about it, the more i tend to think this will be a pro event only.
Thats where apple really have to put in some effort.
It will be really interesting to see how he will present them.
New powerfull machines that will last for ages.... and they must survive the intel transition....
Hmm interesting...

I think the following link is more proof than this.

http://www.apple.com/movies

Normally, links to sites that don't exist lead you to the 404 page, but this one is different.
Mm, but it has been that way since at least July and widely reported. Apple would be slick enough to smooth it over by now if there was something substantial to hide there, don't you think?

It still baffers me why it's "one more thing..."

Is a Pro-update "one more thing..."?

What was "one more thing..." intro of:
- Cube
- G5
- PowerBook G4 Ti
- iMac G4

So, some seriously new & brilliant stuff.

IMHO only a Dual Core Power Mac lives up to the "one more thing..." standard.

Those of us who want dual core powermacs may consider them pretty revolutionary, but I doubt Apple does. After all, they will be dual core, but they will use an architecture Apple is about to phase out.

iPod Video, Yes. WiFi in the iPod, not now.

Yes, we will see Video iPod next week.

Maybe Airport Express goes video because that is useful with video content on the Macs.

But no WiFi in the Video iPod for now.

Oh, for the love of God, Macrumors should be ashamed of themselves.

Either they are trolling for traffic or do zero research.

THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED.

It's a Video about "iTunes + iPod" not a iTunes + iPod Video product page.

But I am sure there will 600 more posts after this. Go to engadget.com and see for yourself (the original source.)

Apple will still be calling the Dual (Duals especially) Cores revolutionary, even if they don't really think so.
They still have to sell these Pro-Macs for, almost certainly, nearly 2 whole years. Gotta keep the hype.
