Media Event on 2006-09-12: "Showtime"
Apple has confirmed the media event on 12th September 10 AM PST. Invitations show searchlights on a white on black/blue Apple logo, implying "movies". Of course by now this is not much of a surprise anymore.
Consensus among sources is that Apple will introduce movies to the iTMS at 9.99 USD a flick, 14.99 for a newish one. What's interesting, though, and has not yet been revealed, is the reesolution of the movies. 640*x pixel resolution would fit the forthcoming video iPod well (and would also be good enough for viewing on a television set as well as your computer monitor). Sources are unclear as to whether the video iPod will be released this month, however. But downscaling to an (updated) iPod 5G would work quite well, though.
Also expected for this month - but not necessarily connected to the media event on Tuesday - are updated iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook models (all going "Merom", the mobile variant of the Core 2 Duo processor line). The Mac mini is also ripe for an update, but Apple plans on releasing it later on, possibly early October.
