spurious invitations for new product announcements from Apple this month, but we've got confirmation that the latest one making the rounds is real. As usual, Stevie J. is playing the hype game; this time, he's asking us to join him for the unveiling of some "fun new products" at the Cupertino event. So, what'll it be? The touchscreen video iPod? Intel-powered iBooks? We don't know for sure -- but we will be there to find out (which means, of course, that this had better be real, or we're gonna have a very hard time explaining why we just charged a plane ticket to our corporate card).
