BTW, haven't seen another thought on this, but while it's got cues and info "cleverly" embedded in the invite, this is about the lamest event announcement thingie I can recall since Apple became so event driven. First sign of less sweating the details in the Post-Steve times? Or am I just lacking in taste, and it's the coolest ever?

Lengthy article on "Assistant" here

Ahh, those were the days - when every car manufacturer changed over nearly the whole body line every fall. It peaked with the successively amazing '55, '56 and '57 Chevies and no one knew at the time, but Detroit's decline set in slowly but shortly thereafter. There was a classic Playboy cartoon about the competing new aesthetic - the cops have just removed a gag from a tied up man and he tells them, "They made their getaway in a '63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68 or 69 Volkwagen....."

- There wasn't a new iPhone this year's june. It's been always in june since 2007.
- There wasn't a music event this year's september. It's been always in september the new iPod models.
- This october 4th event calls it Let's talk iPhone!
so, what's with the new iPods? That one is too obvious.
- A lot of people do not buy iPhones because of the contract.
- Apple needs to give more options.
It surely didn't say "Let's talk iPhones

Read WILL not have it. No small enough/power efficient enough/cheap enough radio.

HSPA+ would give ATT a leg up, but no one else I know of. And it does have to accomodate some minor changes to grab that ungrabbed CDMA/TDMA company in China and Sprint.
