One more thing ...


What's up Steve's sleeve this time?

Apple has invited the creme-de-la-geek to a somewhat hasty "Apple Event" in San Francisco on October 12. They are calling it the "One More Thing" event, a reference to the self-effacing Steve Jobs' catchphrase that always seems to precede a groundbreaking announcement. This is virtually guaranteed to be an iPod announcement of some sort since the venue is the same as the one that hosted the debut of the original 'pod, the iPod Photo, and the U2 special edition. More intriguingly, the invitation graphics feature a red "old-school" theatre curtain. Could this be the announcement of the long-rumoured and much-denied video iPod?

The smart money says no - but there is the specter of the new downsized nano clickwheel being grafted onto a standard 'pod, allowing the display to reach much further down the face for an expanded video area. Stay tuned ...
