Apple to announce its quarterly financials in just over two weeks

With both the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas (Sunday the 19th) and Apple’s second quarter financial results announcement/conference call (Wednesday the 22nd) coming up in about two weeks’ time, excitement and speculation are running high over what might be unveiled this month.

Many have already catalogued what we can probably expect to *not* see/hear during the course of these events — news of Steve Jobs, any new Macs (or iDevices for that matter, most likely), or major strategic shifts.

But most of those reports are based on basic logical reasoning, public information, historical trends/behavior patterns and simple speculation….not hard evidence or “insider information” of any sort.

At the upcoming NAB conference, we expect several significant new software announcements including major new versions (or at least previews of summer releases) of its major video/animation apps such as Motion, Compressor and Final Cut as well as the very significant possibility of two entirely new video production related Pro applications which we are in the process of seeking to bring out from under source embargo so we can speak about them in more detail soon….

Apple Web store(s) offline; rumblings of announcements build

As of Sunday morning Eastern time, reader and source reports have been coming in at a blistering pace as the online Apple Store reportedly went offline for most of the night. It came back later Sunday morning, and remained online throughout the remainder of the weekend.

Although the timing suggests it could be routine, the sheer volume of source reports and other reasons to suspect new hardware product announcements — almost certainly one or more new Macs — combined with the similarity between current speculation and long-standing rumors about new Mac Minis, price cuts, and/or a new Mac Pro….give us reason to suspect that such announcements could be imminent; if not in the next couple of days, then quite possibly before the week is out.

Update to Infinite Loop Bldg. 6 fire news…..

According to sources who returned to the scene of the fire after having left overnight shifts or other late-night work at the company the previous evening….construction to add physical networking & other datacenter/office infrastructure had been installing air conditioning units to offset heat produced by the fast growing server iron located in that part of Building 6’s IS/IT/Networking division offices had been underway for several days prior to the incident which apparently sparked the fire.

Reportedly welding operations being done to support the heavyweight air conditioning hardware and ductwork somehow resulted in a fast-growing fire which escaped notice until it was too late for the welders or other construction personnel to put out directly.

Stay tuned for further developments as reports come in, and for a resumption of normal daily updates with some really hot dirt coming your way shortly….. Read more
