[MOD NOTE: I believe he was liveblogging, I'm gonna condense them into one post until they're is a break] breaking as we speak: http://live.gizmodo.com/ http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/05/steve-jobs-live-apples-the-beat-goes-on-special-event/ -looks like most or all of the new products will be in stores this week. "ipod touch" is literally an iphone minus the phone. web browser and everything. take porn with you! -this is interesting: -UNCONFIRMED: A reader just bought the 8GB iPhone for $399 and 4GB iPhone for $299 in an Apple store just now. Possible price drop? those seem to be the same price as the ipod touch models (8G and 16G)....I guess they have to do it, because they risk cutting into the iphone's appeal. a possible jump-the-shark moment: - 10:59am - "When you get near a Starbucks a fifth button will come up in the WiFi music store -- you may have been in a Starbucks wondering what song is that playing? Now you can buy it with a tap of your finger. And if you just missed it, you can still find it..." Is anyone else underwhelmed by this "feature"? I don't even go to Starbucks, but I could definitely see how it's one of the only places people can get exposed to new music nowadays. that's kind of sad. i miss scott muni. holy shit! -11:02am - "We open 7 stores every single day." The room sounds like someone just hit everyone in the gut. Over 14k stores, 50m customers per week, 18 visits per month per customer. Yowza. -i pray that paul mccartney comes out, if only so that we all hear jim norton go on a diatribe about all of this. -yep, they officially cut the price of iphones by $200....i guess they will be selling 10 million after all.
