Rumors of upcoming Apple event suggest publishing implications
Apple appears to be planning a content announcement, perhaps related to textbooks, at a media event later this month.

The event, which has not been formally announced, was first reported on Monday by AllThingsD and independently confirmed by TechCrunch.

AllThingsD's Kara Swisher reported Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue will be involved. She also notes the last time he was in town for an event like this was when News Corp's iPad-exclusive publication was announced last year.

TechCrunch ads more details, saying the audience will primarily consist of publishing industry representatives.

Clayton Morris, host of Fox News' Gadgets and Games with Clayton Morris, claims to have even more specific details. According to Morris, the big announcement will be related to iTunes University, Apple's educational content distribution platform. He also says it was originally planned for last year.

    Great... Why do I sense a buzz in the fanboy air that is akin to something like an airplane hanger, fully rubberized, with the walls lined with naked Jordash models barely lashed, hyped up on a cocktail of super X & speed... while just about 4 feet into the floor there's about half an inch of UltraGlide covering the floor, all the while Barry White is menacingly playing over the PA system.

    You just know there'd be a record turn out for subscribers on the Spice Network for that suck & f**k extravaganza. Why should this "buzz for the bum" be any different?

    Oops... cross a line...? Fine... I'll cut & paste this for a Droid/Windows equivalent later on, but frankly, I don't I don't see those folks sitting in droves waiting for... whatever this is going to be other than a movie.
