Apple to hold special event on Feb. 28

imageApple has sent out an invitation to select media, including iLounge, to a special event that will be held at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California on February 28th.

The invitation, which only features the iCal-like calendar image shown right, reads: “Come see some fun new products from Apple.” The special event begins at 9:00 a.m. at Apple Town Hall, Building 4.

iLounge has confirmed with Apple that this event will be taking place and is not a hoax like the email sent out last week purporting to be an Apple invitation to a special event on March 1st.

at this point, I wouldn’t put it past Apple to announce a new iPod - look at the length of time between the last G5 iMac and the Intel iMac announcement.

A new iPod would not surprise me.

Apple reserves the right to release new products and updates at their will.

Given that the image is from iCal, I’m guessing something mac-related, not iPod-related…

“Definitiely not an ipod. 5G is way to recent, I’d wait until august / september / november for any new major iPod news. This is of course excluding April 1st, which I still don’t know about.

Well - probably the boombox, a diff. price on the mini/new version, or maybe shuffle accessories since they’re selling more now…”


“April 1st is the day to speculate about. February 28 is probably an event to hype April 1st “

umm, yeah…theres no april 1st thing as clearly stated in the end of this article we all so expressively comment about…

maybe they are previewing Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, no? =) Isn’t it supposed to come out by the end of this year? that would rock.

Maybe they’ll UNBREAK by 5G!!!

Posted by Billy K on February 21, 2006 at 5:28 PM (CST)


I liked my invite better!!!!!

Isn’t it obvious? February 28th is Pancake Day, and Apple plans to celebrate by releasing the 6G iPod, specially shaped like a Pancake!!!

I believe we’ll get another round of Intel upgrades. Plain and simple. Probably iBook intels.

Posted by uphillslide on February 21, 2006 at 5:45 PM (CST)


OMG. i think it will be an intel based iBook. 5g is way too recent for them to come up with a new iPod. Apple, in the pda market, would be very interesting. I like the boombox idea too.

touch screen ipod? tablet pc ?!!! intel mini? OSX BRAINS FOR PETS?! I cant stand the suspense

Posted by juan valdez on February 21, 2006 at 5:56 PM (CST)


Oh please let it be an 80 gigger…......

The IRS givvith, and Apple will takith back…...

Maybe updated shuffle, intel iBooks, or a simple 5g accessory

Posted by Robototobor on February 21, 2006 at 6:04 PM (CST)


i really dont think is the 6g ipod!, must be something about the ipods shuffle or ipod nano new feautures!!

Posted by kevipod on February 21, 2006 at 6:09 PM (CST)


Intel iBook, PLEASE!
Intel Mac mini perhaps?
Some sort of iPod accessory, with the possibility of an updated shuffle.

Posted by Rene on February 21, 2006 at 6:41 PM (CST)


The 4G went through some updates, so why not expect one for the 5G.

And there has to be something going on with iPods, or an invite for ilounge would seem a bit senceless…...
