It's Showtime

The Showtime Special Event
Live Coverage, 12th Sept 2006

Confirming the rumours that have been flying over the last few days, Apple has announced a special event for the 12th of September to be held in the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The announcement reads "It's Showtime" and displays a white Apple logo floating amongst four crisscrossing spotlights.

It's showtime...

Now it hasn't always been true, but on some occasions the invite is a (un)subtle hint at the product(s) to be announced at the event. Perhaps the rumours of an iTunes movie store, or more wildly a video-enabled version of Apple's existing AirPort Express wireless base station, might have some truth in them?

Update: Gizmodo has made a list of the rumours they've come across about the special event;
... "Merom" Core 2 Duo chips inside of Macbooks, giant 23-inch iMacs, colored iPod Nanos with beefier storage and a hard launch for the iTunes movie store. We've even heard good old iPhone, widescreen video iPod, and video-compatible Airport Express rumors.
It looks like they've picked up on everything I've heard about so far, but we're still a week away, lots of time yet for the rumour mill to build up some speed...

Update: A surprise update of the iMac line including the release of a new 24-inch iMac more than a week ahead of the special event on the 12th...

Update: Just spotted an interesting comment on Slashdot;
In February or so, LG Electronics unveiled their 42" LCD part. Apple uses their 20" and 23" units, and I have been waiting for them to present a 42" Cinema. - Ed Halley.
You know, I think he's on to something. Perhaps "It's Showtime" isn't hinting about the rumoured iTunes movie store, at least not on it's own. Perhaps we're looking at a 42-inch cinema display here?

Update: Last minute rumours, as the iTunes and Apple Store go down...
