Fox News 'confirms' Apple tablet, iLife 2010, next iPhone OS

The article by Fox News' Clayton Morris is boldly titled "Apple Tablet, iPhone 4 Launch Confirmed for January 27th"

Fox News posted an article Monday claiming that not only will next week's now-confirmed Apple event play host to the long-rumored tablet unveiling, but it will also see the next iteration of Apple's iLife software on show. Fox's report also claims that Apple will discuss the next iPhone OS update.

The article by Fox News' Clayton Morris is boldly titled "Apple Tablet, iPhone 4 Launch Confirmed for January 27th" (never mind the fact that it's always iffy to "confirm" any new Apple product until Steve Jobs stands onstage with it), and goes on to detail a conversation Morris allegedly had with an Apple source early Monday morning.

According to his conversation with the unnamed individual, next week's San Francisco event will concentrate on three specific projects: Apple's long-rumored tablet, the next iteration of iLife, and an updated iPhone OS. However, iPhone owners have no reason to get too excited just yet, as the report specified that any discussion regarding the next iPhone will strictly be on a software-only level.

TheNextWeb pointed out that author Clayton Morris has correctly broken Apple related stories in the past, with him knowing of the now-confirmed Apple event before anyone else.

However, despite Morris' clearly assured sources, Apple's cryptic wording on the event's invitation may suggest he isn't right this time. Apple's invitation welcomed the press to come and see the company's "latest creation." If you take note of the plural, could Apple be hosting an event dedicated entirely to the device which has been so extensively desired, or will it show more than just the expected?

Also, in the past Apple has been relatively open with its iPhone OS update announcements, and those events have come later in the year.

Apple's "Latest Creation" event takes place at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on January 27 at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
