Kevin Rose did more talking about Apple this weekend on the latest episode of Leo Laporte’s popular “This Week in Tech” podcast. In the episode he discussed the video that he released on his blog this weekend, and gave even more details about the upcoming Apple Special Event.
He reveals that according to his sources the date of the event is September 9, 2008 – and that the iPods will be unveiled and iTunes 8 will be available for download on that day. He also goes into detail about what is coming with iTunes 8, revealing only one feature as to not “over-promise” for the release. The feature he revealed would feature the software looking at a users music and then making suggestions on other songs they might like.
Finally, he showed TWIT host Leo Laporte additional images of the new iPod nano. At this point, if Kevin is making all of this up – he’ll never live it down. I wouldn’t be surprised if most, if not all, of this stuff was on the money. We’ll just have to wait and see. If Apple is hosting an event on Sept 9th, they will most likely send out press invitations on Sept. 5th.
