Gizmodo is reporting that the Mac mini might be on it’s way out!:
“The Mac mini may be pronounced dead as soon as today’s Apple earnings conference call, as two major retailers in Europe have confirmed to me that they can’t order any more of the little computers. While this could signal an updated model coming in, they have been told by Apple to expect no more of it. Their impression is that—once again—the Mac Mini may be dead dead DEAD for real, even while you can still order it at the Apple Store.”
So long little guy…..sniff sniff….

Edibleapple is reporting that Kevin Rose has been making more predictions. This time it is about the new MacBooks containing a Blu-Ray drive.
Sounds good but I have heard this rumor a few times before and it never panned out.
” Kevin Rose enlightened us with yet another juicy rumor. He claimed that the new and yet to be announced MacBooks will support Blu-Ray drives. Rose, however, did qualify his prediction by saying that his source for the Blue-Ray rumor was not nearly as good as his source for the iPod nano and iTunes updates.
On Tuesday, all our questions will be answered: $800 MacBooks? Blu-Ray? One piece of aluminum construction? we’ll see…..

Buzz around the geek blogosphere is all about what is going to be revealed by Apple in Oct. (if anything) Rumors are flying, as they always do, and the latest is code named “brick”.
iphonesavior is reporting:
“Sources have indicated Apple’s “one more thing”, code named ‘Brick’ rumored to be announced around October 14th along with a MacBook refresh, will actually be a re-design of the Mac Mini super-sized to reveal a Mac Mini Pro of sorts. A wild idea that sounds like a stretch of the imagination from sources that we were unable to confirm as completely reliable.”
As always it is a wait and see and blog rumors and wait and blog more rumors and then finally see and blog about it!

Craziness around the geek blogosphere since some pics were found on a German site that is stating this is the new MacBook.
Personally I have been patiently waiting for the new MacBook’s so this would be great news, if true. My gut is telling me I will have to wait until the other rumored announcement coming Oct. 14th.
What do you think?
See for yourself HERE – (it will help if you can read German)
Gizmodo has some leaked pics of the new Nano……keep in mind it’s all rumors until later today.
Straight from Kevin Rose blogg:
Predictions for tomorrow’s Apple event
It’s been a couple weeks, so I thought I’d do a little roundup of my predictions/rumors:
– New design for the iPod Nano
– iPod price reductions
– 2.1 software on iPod Touch
– iTunes 8.0
– New audio visualization
– Genius playlist
– Genius sidebar
– Grid view
And lastly, if I had to guess, I’d say iTunes 8.0 looks a little something like this:
Let’s see how close he is…..tomorrow all will be revealed!
Kevin Rose is stirring up a huge “geek” whirlwind surrounding his latest video post about Apple’s new iPod nano, iTunes 8 and its new music subscription service.
On the TWIT, This Week in Tech podcast, he chatted about his video and gave more info about the upcoming special event.
This is a lot of news for one guy to unveil. Does he have the connections? In my opinion, he has a reputation to protect and can’t afford to be wrong.
I guess we will sit back, cross our fingers and wait until 9.9.08.
