    Limbless monkeys are people too... or are they?

    Yup, me, too. I think this will be more than just hardware.

    Work got in the way of me seeing this earlier - but you can certainly tell when Apple is about to announce something big.  All the trolls come out in force.

    On September 9th, there will be a thunderclap heard 'round the world, heaven will open and iPhone 6 models will descend on the cusp of a cloud guided by angels. Jony Ive will smile and earnestly speak to us from an all-white room. World leaders will break out in song. Dolphins will demonstrate their psychic powers and order lattes.

    "You don't know what time it is till you get an iWatch."

     

    Flavor Flav should walk on stage with a giant 6" iWatch. Two rumored products in one.

    Well, yeah; iOS 8 comes out, too.

     

    The people turning this into ‘IT’S THE SAME VENUE AS THE MACINTOSH THEREFORE APPLE IS CREATING THE BIGGEST THING THEY HAVE EVER DONE AND IF I AM WRONG THEY ARE DOOMED’ are as bad as the analysts who do the same.

     

    Expect the iPhone and iOS 8 and be pleasantly surprised by anything else.

    Shouldn't it be: 2014.9.9 ?

    No, not with dots without leading zeros. We only use the Y-m-d H:i:s format for computing.

    Yeah. No point complaining about how Apple stocks fall on news when we commentators on rumour sites add to the frenzy.

    Wish we could say more. Might just be better Siri.

    As evidenced by the incredible stretch in my post, the well of similes is drying up.

    Dried up, maybe:

    The excellent limbless monkey line isn't a simile. Simian, yes, but not a simile.

    Says who?

     

    I'm hoping that Apple announces a whole bunch of stuff on Sept 9.

Has anyone ever actually uncovered a real clue in any invitation to date?

     

    Then again, I guess there's no way to isolate predictions based solely on the invitation design, since they are polluted by leaks and rumours.


    Well, there was the September 12, 2012 iPhone 5 announcement, where there was a "5" in the shadow of the "12" on the invitation.

    Why do they need the Flint Center which seats 2,400 to announce new iPhones? Last year they announced the 5s at the campus venue which seats 300.

    That would make sense actually. Because of supply chain constraints they won't be able to release everything at once anyway. 

     

    In addition to new hardware I wouldn't be surprised if they announce some new cloud features, partnerships, iOS functionality, software, etc.

    I think you are all correct about the shadow. It says 10 AM as a sundial. But why use that metaphor?

    A) It's a watch
    B) It is powered by the sun (leaf + light)
    C) It overshadows what has come before
    D) It's a revolutionary new device like the watch revolutionized time telling beyond the sundial.
    E) Does the "please arrive early" portion set anyone off? Big event sure, but that could be something...

    Speaking of iOS 8 -- another Beta should drop 9/1 (Labor Day) or 9/2.

    Typically, this iOS release would be the GM ... With an invite to developers to submit iOS apps, including Swift, apps to the app store ...

    But, depending on the availability schedule of the products to be announced on 9/9 (and iOS 8 support for them) -- I don't know how Apple can maintain secrecy & Developers can meet the:  

    iOS 8 GM / new product support / new product availability

    dates.

    And they'll fill every seat, easily.  Quite amazing.  And I saw the pics of the structure they're building for the event...one thing for sure, the magic of Apple's marketing did not die with Steve.
