More likely it only be a hat organization system. And only support red baseball caps. But it will be the best damn hat organization system ever invented and you'll buy lots of red baseball caps just so you can use it.

Maybe they'll also announce a fix for the iTunes 9 release that rendered countless iPod Classics -- new and old -- useless for months now. Hell, even an acknowledgment of the issue would be awesome.

I miss the IBM model M and the Omnikey equivalents. I used to throw those out as I got new computers without that type of keyboard port. If I had realized at the time what crap newer keyboards would become I would have held on to those.

The iPhone went from not existing to a $10 billion + annual revenue generator within 2.5 years.

Know a lot of other business enterprises that have pulled that off with a new product do you?
