Alright, it's late, I'm playing with the Camera that Sean Captain lent me for Apple Showtime tomorrow. And then this lands in my inbox:

Let's just say I have been informed by a little reliable birdy about Tommorow's event. The line-up will follow this similar structure:

Welcoming of Media Members
Discussion on iTunes software, iTMS integration into iTunes, and iTMS
sales and facts.
Announcement of iTunes version 7.0
Announces better search feature for Music Store
Announces Movie Store. Available Immediately will be movies from
Disney and Pixar, among other studios.
New iPod Nano Announcement (nice brushed casing, while it will have
same features as first gen, only a longer battery life)

New iPod Announcement (Widescreen, Bluetooth, and featuring virtual
touchwheel. Does not include Wi-Fi, or any other protocols)
One More Thing....

Whether you believe it or not, jump to read the rest...

TubePort. A $99 2-piece set that includes a dongle that connects via USB to your mac, and another dongle that connects via included HD cables or regular Component cables to your TV. The movie is accessed on your Mac via an iDisk-like storage component hosted by Apple.

Jobs will then explain the pricing structure of the Movie Store.
Movies wil be available as either a smaller iPod-format (which will
cost $9.99 per movie), or as a larger, streamed movie to be streamed
to your TV via TubePort. This cost $14.99 per movie. To purchase an
iPod-formatted movie and a streamed version of the same movie, it will
cost you $19.99.


iTunes movies? Nano? Tubeport? Video iPod? If this isn't a fark, then we were right about our guesses, and this anon tipster is our very own Saint Gizmodo. And we'll just skip liveblogging the rest of the keynote. If this is all a lie, then we'll post their email for you all to savage. Who knows at this point.

I don't really understand how everyone loves Apple. Basically, they are releasing:

1) An HDTV Out

2) Streaming Video

3) Yet another iPod

And all for awful prices. Maybe, MAYBE the HDTV out will be nice, but the iTMS video cost is ridiculous. Why not just buy the dvd and rip it yourself? And has anyone ever tried to watch video on their pods? Its....painful. Another iPod....YAY! Now I can get something else that replaces what I already have! CAUSE ITS BRUSHED METAL ZOMG WHERE DO THEY COME UP WITH THIS????

I also dislike how Apple always releases things with enough fanfare to make you believe that they actually invented it instead of just using existing ideas and making a pretty package. And Apple fans just eat it up in a particularly pretentious way. I have this picture of the typical Mac user with a beret on sipping espresso from a tiny mug, talking in a fake French accent. Just hurts.
