While nobody knows for sure what we'll get on September 9, Apple **tends** to focus its events on one "area" at a time. So I could see the event being about iPhones and maybe some new software that...

I have heard of this before. Can you hear it well enough to discern if there is anything besides music, ie any chatting or advertisements? In short, does it sound like radio?

If so. The issue...

She means she has set Word to show pages side-by-side and would like to change that back to the single scrolling page view. I haven't used Word in a long time so I can't offer the correct menu choice.

I'm very skeptical of this story. Apple tends to offer products that solve problems, and I'm not seeing where you need a heavier 13" iPad to carry around. The iPad mini is said to outsell the iPad...

Doh! Sorry, MG!

I think perhaps the thread is suffering from terminology abuse. I wonder if the OP is referring to iPhoto albums, or if he/she means folders outside of iPhoto.
