It runs slower, the battery life is about 3/4 what it used to be.
And applications behave slightly different upon startup.
And now, I have to go in an kill apps all the time (especially GPS apps).

For the once or twice I've run Pandora while using a GPS app (talk about killing battery life!), I could easily get by without the multitasking. I'd rather have my battery life back and not have to recharge my phone in the middle of the day.

I have my doubts about this, too. Untill the new datacenter is up and running (if the rumors of a new iTunes cloud service are indeed true) I woul little sense to launch a new product which will rely on this service. Besides, the itv / atv is not a music product. I know the iPod touch is about much more than music but it seems a new itv and streaming service would require it's own launch.

Hmm.. there are still Apple TV - blind spots on earth. So apple should push licencing in other countries. Still I'm not shure wether a new apple TV concept would seduce me into buying such a gadget. Never was too much in to TV. So my expectations are not all to high. But I am open for surprises.

I don't know about battery life but I don't know anybody who 'uses' multitasking actively. Most people I know are oblivious to the fact they are running tons of apps in the bg (or keeping state of said apps, to be precise) most people are surprised when I show them how many apps they have 'open'. Multitasking is an example of how lots of loud geeks can create a meaningless fuss. I am not against multitasking but on the iPod or iPhone it is overrated. There should be an option to switch it on / off and the default should be off.

Had the same thought. I bet not.

Now the leaks begin in earnest. I expect that we'll have a pretty good idea what's coming within the next few days.

They probably moved the date so Apple's news rides over the weekend, to block some of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android Tablet) news coming on the 3rd.

Mass media is a large free marketplace for super companies, and Apple knows how to use it to their advantage.

With a Music emphasis, how come no one has mentioned

iTunes in the cloud?

Also I see Jobs briefly playing to the crowd that said the iPad is not a creation device, but consumption, then he'll introduce iLife for iOS with a killer Garageband App.

the iPad as creation device will then take hold.

Remember last year when there was almost nothing new? Okay, there were cheap video cameras in the Nano. Most of the talk was about what Apple would kill...the Shuffle and the Classic topped everyone's list.

What about this year? I would still like to see the Shuffle go.

You don't need to be all that smart, or even all that awake to know they definately will update the iPods.

No, that's speculation! I bet Apple is going to start selling acoustic guitars.

And why is that, some people like the shuffle as is or with more storage capacity 6-8GB wouldn't be bad with more battery life.

You must not have been paying attention to the tech news. The new AppleTV/iTV will be more about streaming media instead of storing on board....

No, you are not the only one. User selected apps to multi-task is my solution. But the fanboys won't permit it

Well, I guess it depends on whether they're selling enough to make it worthwhile keeping. Let's face it .... for some people it may be all the Apple product they can afford. I'd rather see them own that than nothing Apple, wouldn't you?

Or maybe some like the iPod Shuffle as it is. Just load your Tunes and go. Small enough to be out of the way for active people.

That will not happen. Apple has released new iPods at the end of the Back to School promo before and the offer will only apply to previous generations. I will give you the title to my house if that changes this year. The deal will stay exactly the same and the only changes you'll see will come at the very end of next May or early June when it all starts again. Sorry to burst your bubble.

There's never a guarantee.

Evidence suggests that they will. I would bet a lot of money that they will.

But they might not.

True, but if they did not update their iPod line, the market would brutalize the stock as it would be a typically expected update.

To put it bluntly, they would have failed to meet shareholder expectations (i.e., introducing new product to remain competitive).

There is a chance that Apple will not introduce new iPods, but it's pretty much a given. The image in the invitation alludes to a music-related event. It's not like Apple issued a plain-text e-mail. They deliberately chose an image to accompany the message.

That in itself sends a strong implication.

As to the speculation of a 128 gb ipod touch, as iPod capacities grow I find I am less tolerant of having to wait for it to sync the media. I'd rather hold off on 128gb until usb3 arrives.

I will just laugh if the new iPods boast usb3. That would be cool yet would be a not so subtle hint that I need to upgrade my 3 year old Mac. Fat chance, I'm not worried.

You may add my name to the petition.

I like folders. Multitasking, I don't need at all.
One better implementation (IMO) would be for the multitasking (recent apps) bar to only contain apps that are ACTUALLY RUNNING in the background... using CPU/battery.

Think it will look like an airport express or something you have to look at? It would be very zen to have it be something that already exists, basically, and doesn't even create clutter.
Alternatively, a tiny little thing you can stick to the top of your tv, maybe even power it off the USB port on the back of your tv, would be sweet.

Why? Shuffle is their most affordable Halo effect vector in market.

Hmm... IMO I'm not so sure about that. Shuffle seems out of place in a touch and screen world. "Speaks to you" is a nice feature but it doesn't grab us like screens, cameras and touch. I reckon Apple will consolidate to iPhone 4 - like iPod touch and something surprising in iPod nano, and drop the Shuffle.
