The people at Apple must not have very tight lips. Trying (and once again, failing) to keep the new product secret, Apple is preparing for a large unveling on October 12th, and the rumor is that they will be releasing a new, video-enabled iPod. This rumor has spread though, and is now being reported by the Associated Press, as seen at FOXNews.com
Regardless, I am hopeful that the rumor is true. I have been waiting to purchase a new iPod for a few months, declining to purchase until the next upgrade. Being an avid Apple user (I publish to this blog using a 1 GHz iBook G4), I look forward to getting their signature product.
