Apple January event may be linked to iTunes U, education

updated 03:00 pm EST, Tue January 3, 2012

Plans 'years' in making

Apple's rumored January event will be concentrating on iTunes U, and education in general, according to sources in touch with blogger and Fox News anchor Clayton Morris. Morris says he first heard about the event in September; at the time it was scheduled for late fall in New York, but ultimately postponed. New York remains the site for the spiel because of its central location for textbooks and publishing, Morris states.

The initiative behind the event is said to have been "in the making for years," and is anticipated to take the form of "at least two large project announcements." Although no hardware is being revealed, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs is said to have been "intinimately involved with this project." The textbook half of the effort is reportedly the one referred to by Walter Isaacson.

Morris also suggests that despite the importance of the event, it will occur in a "demure space." The company typically holds small gatherings when not announcing a major consumer product, although the iPhone 4S was likewise revealed in a relatively small venue.

    I'd rather they invest in Inkling than buy it or crush it.
