Though few details are currently available, Apple is scheduled to hold a special press event on September 12th, according to an official e-mail sent to online radio show Your Mac Life. Importantly, the event is set to take place on the opening day of Apple Expo 2006 in Paris, an event which the company previously said it would not open with a keynote. It should be noted that hardware introductions are frequent at such Apple press conferences and that the recent launch of the mobile Core 2 Duo makes upgrades to numerous Mac models likely in the near future. Electronista will obtain further information about the event as it becomes available.
UPDATE:BusinessWeek refers to sources who claim that an Apple movie download service will launch in mid-September.
UPDATE 2: French site MacBidouille corroborates the story and indicates that iMac and MacBook Pro stocks are running low, a frequent sign of imminent updates.
