Apparently, Apple has proclaimed May 22-24 "No vacations allowed" days. This usually indicates a major announcement(s).
Wonder what...
Almost certainly not the iPhone 5; industry watchers say they won't be until Fall.

Probably not new iPods or MBPs; those don't normally entail vacation freezes.

Lion certainly won't go on sale yet.

iPad 2s are already new, and iMacs were just revised -- maybe a black iMac besides white?
Maybe, for that matter, all iPads, iPods, iMacs, and iPhones will now be available in all the colors of the iPad "Smart Covers"?

An announcement that Apple is buying the US Federal Reserve Bank?

...My guess is the possible release of Apple's "music in the cloud" service. Apple recently bought the domain "iCloud.com", and has been expected to announce a cloud-based music & video service.

Maybe they're buying Exxon/Mobil to eliminate the hi-value competition.

(Does Steve Jobs have a solution to the energy problem up his sleeve?)

Steve could power anything by using a combination of Hype and a Reality Distortion Field. Smile

Apple is branching out with a new division after aquiring the former Gateway computer. They will now be making a new product

Apple Butter

Absolutely delightful on the other product to be announced ---- iBread.

Maybe an iPC?

Well, it's getting very close to May 22nd and Apple hasn't scheduled any press event at the mothership.

My guess would have been the announcement of a cloud-based music/movie service (Apple did buy the domain name "iCloud"), but I would have expected a press event to announce it. Of course, it's possible they could announce it without a special event.

Also, most observers feel there is a new MB Air coming real soon, but I'm not sure that would have merited a vacation freeze.

The freeze was announced a while ago. It's possible Apple originally planned something, but it's not ready. (Or the supply disruptions from the earthquake put a kibosh on some new product).

Mystery solved! Apparently, Apple has designed a special iPhone which could be used to allow those "taken" in the Rapture to communicate with those "left behind" and visa-versa. (The code name was the "iPhone 4 iRapture").

When it became apparent the Rapture had been rescheduled, Apple quickly decided to delay releasing the phone until a later date.

Could be they were training their employees on setting up the new ipad info stations installed in all their stores as of this past Monday.
