Apple “Let’s Rock” Event

Apple Inc. sent out an invitation this week to select members of the media for a special event to be held Tuesday, September 9. Due to the timing of the invitation and the style of the invitation, it is pretty much assumed (and rightly so) that this will be an event for the announcement of some new iPods. It is typical for Steve Jobs to come out and announce new iPod revs or models prior to the holiday buying season. The month of September is usually the month of choice for such announcements.

There is speculation everywhere of a completely new iPod Nano design, a new iPod Touch and probably a host of other things many of which are quite unlikely. But I can sum up the event for you in once sentence: The product(s) announced will once again dominate Christmas lists and achieve such a cool factor, nay, star status, that any kid who finds a Microsoft Zune under the tree on December 25 will immediately conclude that either he was a very bad boy this year or his parents no longer love him.

So check out Apple’s website Tuesday afternoon and choose which new iPod you want on your Christmas list. Me? I will be staying with the first-generation iPod Nano that I have. Mostly because I want a light Christmas so that we can have some extra funds to fix our broken Macbook screen. So yeah. I’m getting a new Macbook screen for Christmas.

I think I need to go sob in a corner.
