The Mystery Of The Shadowy Number 5 In The Apple September 12th Invite


Earlier today, I wrote an article about the upcoming Apple Event on September 12th.

I mentioned that, perhaps, the shadowed reflection of the Number 5 in the media invite may not be referring to the new iPhone but rather to 5 new products.

It was just a theory but suddenly it has taken on a life of its own.

Now, it appears, that Apple may issue several new iPod products in addition to the iPhone. And, it doesn’t seem so far-fetched to think that the iPad Mini may make an appearance as well.

Personally, I found an October release for the iPad Mini a little late in the season. I don’t know about you, but I shop early and, when weighing in the supply and demand for these products, i want to make sure that my Apple gifts arrive early rather than late.

Early October would work but mid to late October would be dicey. Plus the competitors are releasing tablet products in September so why would Apple wait to release it’s new iPad Mini?

And we can’t forget the rumored refresh of the new iPad.

Yes, a 5 – product announcement at the September 12th Event seems even more plausible. An iPhone, a refresh of the new iPad, an iPad Mini and a couple of iPods. And, let’s throw in a new Apple TV as well – just for fun.

If I was a betting gal, I would place my bucks on 5 products. How about you?


A Charlie Brown Christmas For The iPad/IPhone/IPod Touch Takes You On a Magical Journey


A couple of nights ago, I was feeling the Christmas spirit and decided to spend $6.99 for the A Charlie Brown Christmas IPad App.

And a better way to blow seven bucks I have yet to encounter!

This classic Charlie Brown tale magically comes alive via the wonders of Apple technology and Loud Crow Interactive.

It is a brilliantly conceived interactive book, resplendent with animated features and personal involvement.

Produced by Loud Crow Interactive, creators of PopOut! The Tale Of Peter Rabbit and PopOut! The Night Before Christmas, this Charlie Brown classic takes on a beautiful and meaningful experience when viewed on the IPad.


It is also available for the IPhone and IPod Touch but, truth be told, one will more fully appreciate this interactive storybook when viewed on a larger screen.

And, for all the non-Apple consumers, this storybook is also available on Android and Amazon devices.


We all grew up with this storybook and now you can share this seasonal tale with your children and grandchildren in a new and meaningful way.

This book offers so much: one can play Schroeder’s piano, finger paint with the gang, go carolling with the Peanuts choir, and participate in the Spectacular Super-Colossal Neighborhood Christmas Lights and Display Contest to unlock decorations for your very own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree!

Check out the trailer below and empty that spare change in your pocket to purchase this book. You will immediately be thankful that you did! And your children will enjoy many hours reveling in the glow of this beautiful story.
