Buzzfeed News' John Paczkowski has given us all a reason to mark September 9th on our calendars: his "sources familiar with Apple’s plans" have whispered in his ear that the company intends to hold a special event the week of September 7th, with Wednesday the 9th being the most likely date. The story has rapidly propagated throughout the internet, being echoed by sites as notable as CNN Money.

Mods: Is it possible to fix one of the choices on my poll? I typed "a 2.9-inch 'iPad Pro'" and it is actually 12.9 inches, not 2.9 inches.

I'm curious to see what the new Apple TV is all about. It feels like forever since that was last updated. It's in desperate need of a UI refresh and a renewed focus on usability. Navigation on the current model is painful thanks to all the added channels.

They probably don't rush to update the Apple TV because it isn't a big moneymaker for them. It didn't even get into that pie chart I posted above.

It's nice that they're finally updating it. A8 processor, touch-based remote control, and Siri integration are rumored.

Oh, and let's not forget Apple's big obsession: thinness!
