    And so it begins, the end to a year of rumors, put to bed in one single event. The biggest drama will be the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. Is there one or two new iPhones. Also, will this mark the entrance of Apple into the wearables market?

    I have to laugh at some of these forums online, (not EIC), that over-analyze. They claim the announcement logo is the shading of a sundial indicating the possible announcement of the iWatch.

    I personally think the phrase, 'Wish we could say more' is a double entendre, meaning 'more screen'. :D

    What's up with the no color banner? Is that in reference to the new sapphire glass?

    Well, according to the shadow on the banner, the sun would be at the 10AM position in the sky which is the time the event starts?

    I thought about it some more. That date is an ominous sign. 9.9.2014. If we turn those 9's upside down, we get 6.6. 20 - 14 = 6. That brings it to 6.6.6. :eek::cautious:

    So, can we expect Tim Cook to come out singing, "I like big phones and I can't deny..."

    Sir Tim A Lot.

    The shadow is even the shape of most gnomon (the arm of a sundial)! It's a conspiracy!!! Ha, ha! ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1409258009.884215.jpg

    Numerologically, 9.9.2014 resolves itself to:

    There's an Apple event countdown widget in Cydia if anyone is interested.

    Bigger apple , bigger screen. The shadow effects has to do with the time of the event and also hinting of the iWatch reveal.

    You're all wrong. It's all about the Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own South America.

    (Updated x 2, see below)

    Speculation on the web yesterday turned to U2 and possible involvement of theirs in the iPhone 6 launch (with the linked article pointing out that this date also "happens to be" the date U2's new album will be released).

    From Twitter (iPhone comment mine):

    i6.jpg

    It would be extra nice if Apple used their recently erected structure by the Flint Center as a venue for U2 to perform, or the stage at the Flint Center itself... I could think of various ways U2 could have landed this deal with Apple... (1) Big Cash, (2) ultra-special editions of Product (RED) iPhone 6 (256 GB edition with U2 discography pre-loaded, anyone?), and, lastly, (3) Big Cash.

    The 256 GB edition iPhone 6 does sound like a stretch, I realize this, but it wouldn't be the first time Apple did something special with a Product (Red) edition of one of their products. I'm sure they could easily and quickly auction off a dozen of these for charity, or just sell them for their own profit.

    Update: A spokesperson for U2 has denied rumors of U2 performing at the iPhone launch and even of their inclusion of any U2 album(s) on the new iPhone, an Irish online publication said.

    UPDATE 2: The article I had linked to above has been removed. It cannot even be found on the Google Cache for that URL. Perhaps this is significant??

    Here's a screenshot I'd grabbed earlier:
