    Like the subject says... Traditionally, which other products had update announcements along with the iPod touch in the past?

    So basically, it's always been an iPod exclusive event?

    That's what I was asking. As I said in the thread start, I'm new to this Apple stuff. I never paid attention until this spring when I bought my first Apple product, a MacBook Pro. Since then I've been hooked.

    Oh. I thought you were being sarcastic. I dont think it is strictly iPod stuff. But i think it is for the most part.

    Nope. It was genuine. But I can't totally see how some smart asses around here might say that in a sarcastic tone.

    Gotcha. In any case, I'm looking forward to the announcement. It's probably best to go keep busy for a few weeks and check back. But I'm sure I'll be following these threads and any rumors I can get my eyes on for the next month. lol.

    I'm guessing Steve Jobs knows that all of the hype of the iPhone and iPad is kinda making the iPod Touch seem not so great. Heard sales went down like 8 percent. They really need a huge fund booster other than just a new iPod. Perhaps a CAMERA ATTACHMENT!!! Really want one badly!

    I would not be shocked if a X.0 release is skipped so it can be shipped with 10.7 next year.

    It's categorized as an iPod/iTunes update keynote. With generally a new version of iTunes with a few new features and each of the iPod models are updated. Expect big things from the upcoming iPod touch! Oh, by the way, these events have taken place in early September since 2007. (there may have been September iPod events in 2005 and 2006 as well, but I can't remember)

    EXACTLY. If you think about it considering Finance Economics, Apple needs to find something that would make the iPod touch stand out from the rest of the pack. If you look at music keynote last year at the Apple's Events website, the iPod touch (3rd generation, September 2009) was the number one mobile device in the world (even higher sales than the iPhone) and was praised. If Apple's newer products (iP4/iPad/iPod nano) are going to be killing the iPod touch, then they're going to have to come up with something extremely impressive, or else they'll lose sales/market audience.

    If it is realeased during the iTunes+iPod event, it will be realeased with a new shuffle and nano and maybe classic, and maybe new iTunes. And it will be realeased with iOS 4.1.

    If it is realeased during the iPod Touch media event in mod august, it will be realeased with iOS 4.1, and maybe a new iPad.
