Special Apple press event
Apple next week is expected to hold a Mac-oriented press event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The Mac event, confirmed by MacNN sources, will be held on Tuesday, August 7th and will cover Mac-related announcements, which many insiders believe will bring a new iMac and an update to the company's iLife suite. The suite, bundled with all new Macs and available for $50, contains applications such as iPhoto for photo management/editing, iMovie for video editing, iDVD for disc burning, GarageBand for music/podcast creation/editing, and iWeb for webpage creation. The company last updated its iLife '06 suite of applications more than 18 months ago at Macworld Expo in January 2006.
Several websites report that the event will not feature any announcements related to Apple's iPhone or iPod product lines. The event will begin at 10:00 am PDT at the Apple Town Hall on company's Cupertino-based campus.
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs is widely expected to use the gathering to take the wraps off a new generation of 20- and 24-inch iMacs, which were first detailed back in March.
