After early hype about the potential that a video iPod would be revealed at Wednesday’s special event, Crazy Apple Rumors Site has now confirmed that it will be a dud.
According to sources responsible for arranging the event, the announcements will consist of the following:
- A pink Madonna iPod
- nano socks
Across the Macintosh community, a great wailing was heard as all expectations were shattered.
“This blows!” said a previously excited Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal.
“I want my video iPod,” Mossberg intoned, clenching his fists and gritting his teeth. “I want my video iPod!”
Infoworld magazine columnist Tom Yager sat with his head in his hands, pouting, and kicked idly at nothing with one shoe.
Asked if he was disappointed that Apple was not going to announce new Power Macs, Yager refused to look up and would only shrug slightly.
Asked if he was disappointed that Apple was not going to announce new PowerBooks, he said “I dunno.”
Asked if he wanted some cocoa with little marshmallows, Yager nodded his head.
Apple, meanwhile, has continued to attempt to create buzz around this non-event. At a recent pre-event meeting, a member of Apple’s PR department spent 45 minutes doing nothing but winking at members of the press.
