Number Five is Alive!

The mysterious number 5 on Apple’s event invitation.

Short Circuit - Number Five is Alive on Blu Ray

Why let the pundits have all the phone fun? Here’s my best guess. Giving out the model number of the next iPhone is too generous for a company that prides itself on secrecy. My vote is on five product announcements:

  • Redesigned iPod Shuffle
  • Redesigned iPod Nano
  • Redesigned iPod Touch, rebranded as the iPad Nano (see my February 2012 article, The iPad Family)
  • The Amazon Fire-breathing iPad Mini tablet
  • And one more thing, the new iPhone

“Five” may also refer to the number of aspirin Andreas will be taking on September 12 to ease the headache caused by the noisy din of his coworkers talking about Apple’s latest product announcement.

On an unrelated note, is anyone else surprised that Short Circuit is actually available on Blu Ray?

I’m excited – the replacement for my trusty Apple iPhone 3GS is soon at hand. Number Five is Alive!

What do you think Apple will announce next Wednesday?
