Just for fun... apple announcement

Apple is set to anounce something in early september.
The Teaser is 'hey siri give us a hint".

So tell me.. Does the hint look like a (lens) optical element and some part of a color spectrum graphic?

It sure looks like it to me? Could there finally be a big camera change coming for the iPhone ?

Just for fun what do you think

If the event poster is intended to resemble color bars, they really need to check their scopes..

While it does look like a lens and spectrum, it's probably just the top of the apple logo.

Well, it certainly is, but I think people are reading into it a little more...

Yes and what it almost certainly is is a vessel for immeasurable volumes of information, operating in multiple dimensions and integrated into apps and technologies ushering us into a very different visual culture with expectations far beyond simple documentation.

"Look deep within yourself and you will find the answer. Especially on September 9."

Early guesses/expectations: new iPhone 6s and 6 plus S with Force Touch, dramatic camera upgrade, motion wallpapers. Also rumored are the rumored larger iPad Pro as well as iOS 9, etc... Announcement to be held at a large venue, so there are likely to be major announcements.

"Give us a hint" is an anagram of "hi genius a tv."

If there is a more provocative word than "Leica", it must be "Apple"

I think it will be a revolution in telephotography akin to the revolution in focusing technology represented by eye-focus in the long-ago Canon cameras. This revolution will allow telephone conversations without the need to speak; simply by turning our thoughts to the topic as we turned our eyes to the object to be in focus. It will also adopt features of iPhoto, whereby our speech can be easily uploaded by thought to the telephone but hard as **** to transfer anywhere. fun is an anagram of 'nuf.
