Dont know how true this might be but i found it interesting:

Eagle-eyed MacDailyNews reader "Patrice" has done some detective work and found that the schedule of events for San Francisco's Moscone Center, the traditional home of Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), has one nondescript entry in June (WWDC's usual month) which just might give away the as-yet-unannouced dates for WWDC 2008:

06/08/08 - 06/13/08: Corporate Event, Moscone West, Convention/Tradeshow (This is a private event.)

All of the other events currently listed for June and July 2008 have specific event names.

Apple typically announces the WWDC dates in early May each year.

Hmm. I do recall that the Macworld event was held twice a year right up to the late 90s, early 2000s, in January and the other in June or July: one was held in San Francisco and the other was in the East, sometimes New York, sometimes Boston.

His Steveness decided one event per year was enough: that was when he came to correct Apple's plummeting, so I guess this was to cut costs, and to make the event a rarity...

As you can tell there has been 100.00 knocked off of the MBA and 8.00 off of the superdrive.So my question is why would i get such a good discount if there was nothing around the corner?Kind of odd to me but this could still be considered speculation as well.
