Apple Inc. will be hosting an event in New York later this month. Most likely this event will not be used for announcing a new iPad. Generally Apple makes product announcements in San Francisco. It is suspected that Apple will use the event for announcing an update for e-book publishing and the iBooks platform. The invited guests appear to be more focused on people in the publishing industry as well. Given that Newsstand does not seem to have much value except being a shortcut to the New York Times, I hope that application sees some kind of update as well.
