Fun new products, from Apple

Coverage of the Apple Special Event

The invites usually give some subtle hint of the type of product that Apple are going to announce, what are we to make of a iCal related invite? Can Apple finally be shipping a replacement for the Newton? Are the recent rumours surround Apple's touch screen patents wrong, are we heading for an Apple branded PDA?

Update: The Register points out that security surrounding this launch has been particularly tight. Thinking about it I can't remember the last time we had a special event actually on the Infinite Loop itself, or when we knew so little about what was going to be announced? Either this is a really big announcement, or a really small one. Do they want it on-site so they can have total control of things, including venue security? Or was the Moscone Centre just all booked up? Does anyone have any leaks? I haven't seen anything yet, which is quite telling. This could be interesting...

Update: The Apple rumour mill starts to roll, more news on what might be arriving at the special event...
