The Apple announcement for September 2010 starts at 1 p.m. est. Will today’s Apple announcement event for September 2010 be the latest Apple announcement to change the world? At the least, much of the world will be glued to their computers in order to find out. Traditionally, keynote speeches are not an exciting event for anyone outside the company, but it is for this one. Because of that, the Apple announcement event to kick off September 2010 is yet another Steve Jobs showcase.
Every so often, Jobs puts together a special conference to announce his new products and updates for current products. Techies and iPhone/Pod/Pad/Tunes devotees are always on the edge of their seats, to see what Jobs comes up with next. But this year, Jobs will have a larger audience than ever.
Today’s special Apple announcement for September 2010 is a world-wide event, since it is being streamed live on Apple.com. Starting at 1 p.m. est, 10 a.m. Pacific, the website will show Jobs presenting his upcoming products and his latest updates.
Usually, there are new versions of the iPhone or iPod unveiled in Jobs’ speeches. Various rumors about the September 2010 Apple announcement event include another iPod Nano, or increased preview time for songs on iTunes. However, the big new product rumors revolve around television this time.
According to Bloomberg, the Apple announcement will kick start September 2010 with major updates to Apple TV. In fact, the new set-top box is rumored to deliver streaming videos to consumers’ TVs, including programming from Netflix.
The Netflix streaming video service has increased over the last year, and now it may partner up with Apple for a greater viewing experience. Users would pay a subscription fee to Netflix for it, according to three unnamed Bloomberg sources.
Such a move would be a big boost to the struggling Apple TV product. Still, these are all just rumors, as the actual Apple announcement for September 2010 is officially under wraps. Whatever Jobs announces, he would have to do a lot to top himself – although he usually finds a way.
Today’s event may not introduce a brand-new version of the iPhone, Pod or Pad, or have a brand new iProduct. But the hype for the September 2010 Apple announcement, and its world-wide distribution, have already done enough to further certify Jobs’ power. His latest, biggest keynote speech in tech history is now under an hour away.
