No Apple Event Scheduled for February

Earlier today, Japanese blog Mac Otakara claimed that Apple will be holding an "unusual" event in February, backtracking somewhat on its earlier claim of an early February iPad 3 event.

The Loop's well-connected Jim Dalrymple now reports that Apple will not hold an event in February, indicating that observers waiting for the iPad 3 or other major announcement from Apple will need to hold out until at least March.
This is not going to happen, according to my sources. Apple will not hold an event in February, unusual or otherwise. That’s it.
Dalrymple has in the past quashed inaccurate rumors regarding Apple media events, and has proven to have reliable information.

Make enough definitive statements and you're bound to be right eventually.

It's bad business practice to make major announcements on holidays.



That's not a holiday.

There is the annual shareholders meeting on February 23.

My guess is that Apple is planning on announcing that is will begin paying a dividend to its shareholders at that meeting.

Maybe this is the reason for the confusion...

Excuse me Apple,


So tell Apple, rather than us.

where the hell are new iMacs, laptops etc etc etc.


iMacs were updated in May last year. Thats not actually that long ago.

It has been a looooong time since anything really new has been announced.


Thats quite some rock you live under.

Never mind the big iPhone 4S disappointment.


Says who? Apple are selling millions of the things. And im certainly not disappointed with mine.

I was something of an Apple evangelist in my rather large circle of friends. Now I am beginning to wonder. Recently bought a Samsun Galaxy S2. Don't regret it one second.


Great! So go nerd out on some Samsung forum and quit posting self opinionated crap on here ;)
