From Tipster Jonah:

"Just finished reading my Sunday New York Times. Intersting fact, every electronics ad—Circuit City, Best Buy, etc.—had zero iPods listed...Strange, given that every week, for months now, there have been iPods for sale. I think the big retailers know something we don't."

Of course he is referring to Apple's big, huge, spectacular, somewhat random September 12th press conference. I haven't been keeping up with the big boy electronic ads weekly (Gawker keeps me locked up in a dungeon with nothing to look at but a computer screen and the funnies), so I can't confirm this iPod suspicion either way. What do all you beautiful, intelligent, somewhat free on the weekends readers think? Let's kick off the ridiculous amount of Apple related polls for press conference week!

DISCUSSION

Apple's press conference on September 12th is believed to announce a new iPod. I have no doubt that they will bring a new iPod into their mainstream. First of all, it's been about a year since the new iPods came out, and nothing is new about them anymore. Second, on September 7th, Apple's "Multifunction hand held device" patent was published, just before the conference. The patent includes: touch screen, full screen display, multitasking capabilities, pressure or force sensing devices, image sensor, touch gestures, differentiating between light and hard touches, speakers, wireless communications, and much much more. I think that they will introduce a new touch screen iPod video that in one full screen, with a touch-screen click wheel that disappears after you use it and comes back on when you touch the screen.
