Apple officially announcers October 23 event

This is just what we've been waiting for: Apple has announced an event to be held in San Jose at 10 am Pacific Time on October 23. Their typically cryptic hint on the invitations that went out reads: "We've got a little more to show you." The invitation confirms the date that has been rumored for the past few days. And it suggests we'll be seeing more than one device. In addition to the expected iPad mini, there are rumors that Apple will announce new versions of their iMac and Mac Mini, as well as a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a retina display. I can hardly wait until the announcement.
