Apple’s at it again

Apple Computer sends out a mysterious invitation and everybody freaks out. Again.

The company has invited selected reporters to “come see some fun, new products” Tuesday at the Apple Town Hall on the company’s Cupertino, Calif. campus.

That’s about all the invitation says. But it’s enough to drive speculation about what the company may or may not do. Laptops with Intel chips inside? An iPod boombox? The silly cardboard box dressed up as a mystery media cube?

(Full disclosure: We’re guilty of the speculation as well, running a story today suggesting the laptops with Intel chips inside scenario).

Perhaps Engadget put it best: “Any time Apple sends out a keynote announcement, like yesterday’s ‘fun new products,’ we kind of brace for impact around HQ for the glut of bad Photoshops, fake rumors, and general mass hysteria within (and sometimes without) the Mac community.”
