Apple just sent out invites for an event on October 20th. The Event invite reads Back to the Mac. This means Apple's Steve Jobs will unveil new stuff related to Mac Computers. A new MacBook Air is in the rumor mill. There is also wishful thinking about an iMac touch, but that one looks unlikely. This Oct. 20 Apple media event could also be about software.
Apple could already drum up excitement for OS X 10.7. Rumors about OS X 10.7 already appeared back in 2009, but nothing really is known yet about the upcoming Apple Mac OS. THhe Apple Back to Mac invite shows a Lion behind the logo, if I am not mistaking. Will OS X 10.7 be called Lion? After Snow Leopard it is time for another big cat. A lion is a very big cat. Will OS X 10.7 be worthy to be called lion?
Either way, all eyes will be on Apple on October 20, which is Wednesday next week. Apple will hold its quarterly earnings call two days earlier on Oct. 18.
