Report: iPad mini event invites on Oct. 10?

Apple is expected to send out invitations on October 10 for a special iPad mini-focused event, according to a report from Fortune, citing a “major Apple investor” as the source. While the Fortune report suggests that standard Apple scheduling would place the unveiling event on the following Wednesday, October 17, with a launch on Friday, November 2, a typical nine-day gap would place the launch on Friday, October 26. Apple has already scheduled a new major release of iTunes for “late October,” with releases of the seventh-generation iPod nano and fifth-generation iPod touch taking place at an unspecified time during the same month; iTunes 10.7 already includes support for the new iPods, but makes no mention of the widely rumored but as-yet-unannounced smaller iPad.

Would be great if they did this, that way all us touch users could make a decision on whether or not to cancel those pre-orders to get in line for some of these since I’m starting to grow skeptical they’re going to make their Oct ship date with the screen supply issues and the record number of iPhone 5 sales.

Mr. Tim Cook, who makes $500 million dollars a year, is greedy all the way to the bank when he apologizes for Apple Map App.  I would think Mr. Cook was more serious if he was penalized $1B in stock options and forfeited all past pay and stock options.  Apple’s numerious blunders do not come at the expense of T. Cook.  Jobs said Cook could do the job.  And Cook cannot!  Fan bys and fan gurlz accept this as normal and it is not.  Fire Cook and then let’s see what happens!  It can’t get any worse for THE customer.  Why do you, the paying customer, accept never ending crap from Apple?  Stupid is stupid does.
