Apple’s Next Event to Be Held on October 4

Our long national nightmare is over.
Apple has finally announced the date for the Next Big Event in the Appleverse: On October 4, they will be announcing the rollout of IOs5 , the next Iphone(s?), etc, etc.

Quote:
Tuesday, Oct. 4.

That’s the day Apple is currently expected to hold its next big media event, according to sources close to the situation, where the tech giant will unveil the next iteration of its popular iPhone.

While there have been a lot of conflicting reports about the exact timing of the event, including some that pegged it as taking place this month, AllThingsD had previously posted that the rollout of the iPhone 5 would be in October.

While Apple could certainly change its plans anytime, sources said that the Oct. 4 date has been selected by the company to showcase the iPhone 5. Sources added that the plan is now to make the new device available for purchase within a few weeks after the announcement.
EVENT

I for one will be thankful that the iPhone 5 rumormongering will finally, be over. And then I guess the iPad3 rumormongering will begin.

An unofficial announcement of the announcement. I thought it would never happen.

Well, I predicted this event would happen sometime in the future and it looks like I was right.

Saw on another site that apparently Al Gore (yes, he's a board member of Apple) confirmed that the next iPhone will be unveiled next month.

No, it's the iphon... Al's not taking any chances with "e" on the end of a word after his last spelling fiasco...

Apple should name the 5 in his honor, sans "e" of course, and call it the iGor; a nice commie name

If you're refering to potatoe-gate, it was Dan Quayle.

Originally Posted by Al Gore, 2000 Presidential Debate
I'll be offering my vision when my campaign begins. And it will be comprehensive and sweeping. And I hope that it will be compelling enough to draw people toward it. I feel that it will be. But it will emerge from my dialogue with the American people. I've traveled to every part of this country during the last six years. During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.
That doesn't sound to me like he was claiming he invented the internet. It sounds more like he was claiming leadership in pushing initiatives to get the political framework in place so network communications could thrive. Primarily through the "High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991".

Originally Posted by Vincent Cerf and Robert Kahn
Al Gore was the first political leader to recognize the importance of the
Internet and to promote and support its development.

No one person or even small group of persons exclusively "invented" the
Internet. It is the result of many years of ongoing collaboration among
people in government and the university community. But as the two people
who designed the basic architecture and the core protocols that make the
Internet work, we would like to acknowledge VP Gore's contributions as a
Congressman, Senator and as Vice President. No other elected official, to
our knowledge, has made a greater contribution over a longer period of
time.

Last year the Vice President made a straightforward statement on his role.
He said: "During my service in the United States Congress I took the
initiative in creating the Internet." We don't think, as some people have
argued, that Gore intended to claim he "invented" the Internet. Moreover,
there is no question in our minds that while serving as Senator, Gore's
initiatives had a significant and beneficial effect on the still-evolving
Internet. The fact of the matter is that Gore was talking about and
promoting the Internet long before most people were listening. We feel it
is timely to offer our perspective.

As far back as the 1970s Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high speed
telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the
improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official
to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact
than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship. Though easily
forgotten, now, at the time this was an unproven and controversial
concept. Our work on the Internet started in 1973 and was based on even
earlier work that took place in the mid-late 1960s. But the Internet, as
we know it today, was not deployed until 1983. When the Internet was still
in the early stages of its deployment, Congressman Gore provided
intellectual leadership by helping create the vision of the potential
benefits of high speed computing and communication. As an example, he
sponsored hearings on how advanced technologies might be put to use in
areas like coordinating the response of government agencies to natural
disasters and other crises.
I get really tired of this meme.
