Rumors and Guesses Galore: What's Ahead for Apple Today?
Image via BusinessWeek
Finally, the madness will come to an end today. After days and weeks of maddening speculation about the many things Apple "could" say or do at their annual media event, the wait to find out exactly what the tech pioneer has in store concludes today.
Of course, that means there are still a few more hours remaining for frantic guesswork. And, as always, I'm more than willing to participate.
Like many Apple fans, I have my handy-dandy scorecard ready to fill out as the Apple event unfolds. Comparing my predictions with the actual announcements is an annual tradition. Although I usually get average marks, some say this year's likely announcements are so obvious that guessing what's in store is easier than cheating on an exam.
According to PC World:
This time around, Apple is rumored to be adding cameras to its iPod classic and touch models. Whether that's a good idea or not is an interesting question, but it would add a new dimension to Apple's media players. However, some reports claim that Apple has had technical problems during testing and may not release such products on Wednesday.
Then again, today's Apple event could ultimately be better remembered for what it takes away than what it provides.
Wednesday could also be notable for products that get discontinued--specifically the iPod classic. After last year's iPod unveiling left the 120GB music device as the last hard drive-based player in Apple's lineup, the classic's days appeared numbered.
Indeed, there are many possibilities and very few certainties. And in only a few hours (at 10 a.m. PDT, in fact) we can begin separating fact from fiction.

I'll never get why some people get so upset when someone else posts "first".
Back on topic, I don't know what to expect. I do hope the $199/299/399 16/32/64GB iPod touch with a camera and mic rumors are true. Then my bro will get one.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
