I think we can all agree that it's only nice to see the Apple Store down around this time, shortly before events, meaning that new products are surely on the way. A new iPod touch with a camera? iTV? New features on iTunes? Only time will tell, and we don't have to wait long, thankfully.
Don't forget, you an stream live coverage of Apple's event...so long as you have a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad. Good luck.
