Is it the iPad 3!? The new Apple TV update!? Probably not ... the daily concensus on the Apple Media Event that's been scheduled is some sort of publishing or advertising deal ... but who knows. Apple VP Eddy Cue is tipped for a big part of the announcement, and he does Internet software and services, namely iTunes. Maybe it's an iCloud announcement -- that front has been quiet for a while and it could be the bog official kick of something related to iCloud apps or the iCloud platform as a whole. AllthingsD points out that "Cue is in charge of a large swath of Apple’s media units, including the iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, as well as iAd and its iCloud services," so pick one of those and roll with it. It's also timed around the iWorld conference, so they must want to get people talking. Why pay for publicity when Apple can get it for free?
The new iPad 3 features rumors are rolling right now with ideas rolling around extended iPad battery life, iPad face recognition, plus all of the Siri and iTunes / iCloud possibilities. Find out more.
