Engadget confirms they received an invitation from Apple.

from the logo I think it's clear ipods are on the menu.

some speculation from PCmagazine as to what's coming

--A larger, horizontal screen on the iPod nano. Get ready to say goodbye to the lukewarmly received "fat" nano, and hello to a more Zune-like orientation.

--Higher-capacity iPod touches. 64GB, anyone?

--Price drops across the iPod touch line.

--The end of the spinning-hard-drive-based iPod...? Our guess is that this will be the iPod Classics's death-rattle, as Flash-based players continue to bulk up.

Well, I'm not interested in any new iPods, but I'm looking forward to the possibility of iTunes 8 being released next week.

i want to get an ipod touch... but since the apple event is so close, i'm waiting to see what's new

ipod touch @ 200$ (and assuming nothing was taken away, wifi is important to me) would be great

Good thing it's on the 9th, just in time before the world collapses into a black hole.

What does magsafe have to do with your iPod?

The last time that iTune was performing well enough for my taste was WAY back, like iTune 4.0 or something like that.

Now iTune is the be-all end-all for Apple. Jack of all trade, sync your iPod, iPhone, activate iPhone, Music Store, video, apps store, coverflow, ....... It feels heavy.

What would you suggest? A separate app for each of those functions? I don't think that would work somehow. And anyway, you only see the features you want to see. It's not like Apple is forcing you to load every single part of the application every single time.

I'm dying to see the new Macbook Pro's

Check out this Mock up of a Black Macbook Pro

looks tight....although I don't like the thick rim around the screen and not fond of glass either.

Maybe they will announce those fugly rounded iPod nanos. (The second concept was better). But yeah, I'm also hoping iTunes 8 comes out. Hopefully the bug where iTunes crashes if shapshifter is trying to skin it is fixed (but I'm hoping too much =P)

All I want is iTunes to be re-written in Cocoa, that'd solve a mountain of issues and obviously create a few other issues.

Of course the key here is that iTunes would then be a 64-bit application which would fall in with Mac OS X Snow Leopard development.

iPhone bug fixes are also on my Must Have list. 2.0.2 = crappy battery

Wow, Macrumors said it could be a sign of MBs and MBPs being pushed to October.

If true, very bad marketing, very bad... students just began, they want their laptops and are not going to look at Apple's if the specs are outdated. The curious generation about OS X won't wait until october, they will buy a Windows laptop. Fans of OS X will wait, but if we look closer at the market share, the last category is 10x smaller :s

To, say, confirm this, I don't see a whole new iPod generation being announced for 7 days only on Apple.com's main page, it's gonna last a couple of weeks, THEN we will see MBs and/or MBPs. :(

The sad thing for me is, I already bought a mouse for my future MB *sigh*

Are they releasing newer regular (non-nano) iPods also?

iTunes is way to hefty but still not that bad. I actually like the Zune software (2.5 atleast) more but I still like iTunes also.

They always update their entire iPod lineup, so I'd say so. :)

My guess is a 120GB and 200GB Classic.
