Apple event set for Oct. 16

Warning: This story has not been updated in several years and may contain out-of-date information.

“It’s been way too long,” says Apple’s invitation for a special event on Apple’s campus on Oct. 16. (Along with an image that features a certain familiar collection of colors!)

Let the Kremlinology begin! Is it a winking admission that the press was just in Cupertino for an Apple event last month? Is it a promise of updates to the Mac mini, which hasn’t been touched since 2012? Is it a high-school reunion? Is someone trimming his very long beard? (“Nope.”)

All I know is that we’re supposed to meet at the main entrance at 1 Infinite Loop (which is not the usual Apple Town Hall routine) before “an executive presentation” at 10 a.m.

And yes, I will be there! Along with Apple’s very own six-color rainbow, it seems.
