Tuesday October 23, 2012:
What: Invites to a media event were sent out with the tagline, “We’ve got a little more to show you.”
What to Expect: Apple has almost single-handedly taken control of the mobile technology market. Enticing products such as iPods, iPhones, and iPads have ensured this company’s success on such a massive global scale; But as they have said, they aren’t done and have a “little more” to show us.
Rumors have been circulating for a while of a smaller iPad. With the 7-inch tablet market making waves especially among companies like Amazon with their Kindle and Google with the Nexus 7, it may be about that time for Apple to swoop in and stake their claim in the market for smaller tablets. Emails about and pictures of this smaller iPad have been leaked on the net leading most to believe that this Apple event will be the reveal of the new “iPad Mini” and all that it includes.
Who: Marvel Studios
What: Iron Man 3 Trailer
What to Expect: Robert Downey Jr. is back as the Iron Avenger, Iron Man in the sequel to the hit Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. A preview of one of 2013’s most anticipated films, the trailer for Iron Man 3 will debut online showing off what to expect from this next blockbuster leading up to the Avengers sequel in 2015.
