Apple announces “One More Thing” event for Oct. 12 1

Apple has announced a “One More Thing” event on October 12, 2005, at the same California Theatre venue in San Jose where the iPod photo and U2 Special Edition iPod were announced last year. The event, promoted to select media, will begin at 10:00am Pacific, and is named after the famed oratory trick of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who uses the phrase as a prelude to a bombshell announcement at the close of a keynote speech. As contrasted with the blue jeans image used to tease the announcement of the iPod nano, the One More Thing event is promoted with a red theater-like curtain. iLounge will be on hand to provide coverage of the day’s announcements, which will come one day after the company publicly discloses its financial results on October 11.

  1. I know some people that know people who work at apple. They gave me info on when the video ipod would be released. They said before christmas and at the latest, the spring. One of them told me they had held one in their hands and atcually played not only a movie, but also… the latest DOOM video. Not only movie capabilites, but video game capabilities. Probably the contend against the PSP. This announcment has just backed up what they told me. and i couldn’t be more excited.

  2. Thinksecret – a highly reliable source on inside Apple info, has reported that the event will be used to launch new PowerMac’s and PowerBooks.
    I’m hoping for a new iPod though as I’ve just sold my 60gigger, but if the new PowerBooks have an improved (HD) screen I’ll be just as chuffed…..
    Looks like the waiting game will be kept full of speculation if it will be an iPod launch or a Mac computer launch….
    Personally I think it will be an iPod. I’ve never known Apple to use a drop-of-the-hat special event to launch a Mac….

  3. if it is going to be video it will want to have a heaps bigger screen than what is available now. plus being able to directly connect a digital camera for on the go storage would be nice.

  4. EVERYTHING!!!!

    Apple are going to announce the greatest one more thing ever, viz the Apple takeover of everything! The easiest way to watch anything wherever, the coolest devices in any market (be they razors or human clones) and, for all the fanboys, fast servers for iLounge.

    Apple will take over the world in one fell swoop, which will be one in the eye for Microsoft, who’ve been trying for years, and Google, who have a secret plan protected by non-evilness. Apple will conquer all.

    (Especially those Lilliputians, known world-conquerers)

  5. Proof its videoipod. Go into itunes and check out the ‘free’ music videos. The last update was August 9th. I don’t count the nano commercial. So,by the time vpod is out Apple will have 2 months worth of new videos to SELL us. Movie trailers will still be free but now downloadable. Music vids,probably $2.99 per. Video podcasts too. And,people will do what they do for psp so you will soon see ipod-ready South Park episodes,etc online.

    If not,why would Apple all of a sudden stop adding new videos?

  6. no video ipod – imagine the battery life – maybe 2-3 hours, or more, but then it will be quite be big to have room for a powerful battery – crap!

  7. no,the ‘ipod cell’ is coming next summer. Janurary will offer a new shuffle and a 6gb nano. 2 and 4gb nanos will stay but drop in price by $25 each.

  8. if it is going to be video it will want to have a heaps bigger screen than what is available now. plus being able to directly connect a digital camera for on the go storage would be nice.

  9. Big thumbs up on the servers and stuff, even if they won’t be here next week.

    As far as the video iPod goes it’s a possibility, but I don’t think the curtain has anything to do with it. When is the last time you went to a movie theater that had curtains? The 70’s?

    Their website may have nothing to do with iPod Videos at all, people tend to forget they own Quicktime, so a Video section isn’t all that far-fetched.

    My guess is that the announcement will involve an iPod that can house small amounts of change. It’s obvious. Curtain = theatre = entertainment = money = change = duh.

  10. Time to go buy a 4g ipod. The price will be cheap. Also have fun upgrading servers. I thought it was just my slow internet.

  11. alternatively they might release a decent version of idvd/imovie, HD is hopeless! I think any advances there would be appreciated.

  12. “Whether people want to buy a device just to watch video is not clear – so far the answer’s been no. Devices that do video… have not been successful yet. No-one’s figured out the right formula.” – Steve-O Jobs (Paris Apple Expo)

    However much any of us want a vPod to be behind the curtain, I’m with those who think it unlikely. Apple already has its Holiday Season iPod. But If Steve Is reading I would really like an Ipod that you wont replace in a matter of two months

  13. I don’t think it will be a video ipod. It will probably be the ipod with bigger hardrives and smaller sizes. Everytime Apple takes us by surprise in iPods, its usually been by design, not new capabilities. While there has been new capabilities, it hasn’t been as significant as the designs.

  14. “Apple Computer recently held discussions with major recording companies, seeking to license music videos to sell through the company’s iTunes Music Store, according to a report in Monday’s edition of The Wall Street Journal.

    The talks are rumored to be a prelude to a video-capable version of the iPod, which Apple has reportedly told some entertainment-industry executives to expect this fall.

    According to the Journal, the music videos would likely cost $1.99 each on iTunes, with the possibility of a discount if consumers buy a music video and a song at the same time.”

    A video ipod does not interest me in the slightest – plus how would battery life be with the backlight being on all most constantly?

  16. goin by the equations put up by some guys..

    Red Curtains = Movie Theater = Movies !!!

    Not sure about Video iPod since Apple would love to cash the nano this holiday season, so i don’t think they will kill it’s market by launching iPod update so soon. But this more or less seems like iTunes Movie Store announcement.

    … and yes, if that’s true, get ready for Video iPod in first quarter 2006.
