Early preparations begin for Sept. 1st Apple event

updated 09:30 am EDT, Fri August 27, 2010

New Touches, Nanos predicted

Even though the event is several days away, preparations have already begun for Apple's music-themed announcements at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The exterior of the building now bears the same image as an e-mail invite sent out to the media. Photos of the interior have yet to come in, but Apple is unlikely to provide many if any clues as to what it plans to reveal.

Rumors and evidence suggest that Apple will at least debut a fourth-generation iPod touch, newly equipped with iPhone 4 features like a Retina Display and rear- and forward-facing cameras. The company may also be preparing to launch a radically redesigned iPod nano or shuffle, potentially built around a 1.7-inch touchscreen. Still other reports have suggested that the company may be making TV- or Apple TV-related announcements, or else debuting an iTunes web store.

    Will there be an exclusive Lady Gaga

    video for this event since they've seen her about Apple headquarters? I'm not much of a fan of hers, but she's definitely hot property and should help boost iPod Touch sales to some degree.

    Over-rated madonna wanna-be (who, in her own right is/was way overrated). Although, on the "known more for their actions than their work" scale, she does rank ahead of idiots like the kardassians, has-been Paris Hilton, or lindsay lohan.

    Wonder what she and the likes of Amy Winehouse will be doing to stay in the headlines a couple of years from now.

    no - look at the pictures - apple is clearly going to debut its own line of acoustic guitars, with revolutionary new features like automatic tuning and a screen to play back garage band training videos!!!
