I think more interesting is that Apple changed their quarterly earnings call from October 27 to October 25 due to a scheduling conflict. As of late Sept it was to be the 27th but just a week or so later they announced the date change.
That might indicate something happening on the 27th. That could be new MacBookPro and/or MacPro. Perhaps X drops in tandem. Of course there may be no tactical reason to tie FCPX to a hardware release so it could happen earlier.
My own guess would be somewhere between 4 and 13 days with Tuesday - Thursdays being the most likely days. FWIW I think Apple will only have visible marketing around MacBookPros though. FCPX and/or the MacPro will just kind of be tossed out there (which would disappoint me).
FCPX Creative Summit starts in Cupertino on the 27th so that may be the date since it would result in some built in marketing for FCXP and/or MacPro since those will be the most motivated people in the market. That might also explain the earning call change which was scheduled on the 27th.
It was raining, I was on my way to meet some friends for coffee. The rain was just a drizzle, suddenly as if I had no choice I was forced under an awning, the rain without warning changed in to a down pour. I almost felt lucky that I had a place to stand as fellow bystanders ran drenched through the storm. A bus sped down the avenue and I realized that I was about to get drenched by that huge puddle in front of me. I opened the glass door behind me, the bell rung and I slipped in to the dark red lit area. The interesting looking lady in the back asked me if I was ready for my reading. As it seemed I had no choice I said, "sure". The session was unbelievable. She knew everything about me. My heart raced, my skin raised on edge when she told me things that I only I knew. She was simply awe inspiring and frightning. When the the whole thing was over, I paid her and said "thanks!?". The rain had stopped. With the exit door half open I twisted my head back and asked her; "ohh, i forgot one more question, the most important one, when will the new final cut pro be released?" she answered "what do you think I'm a f*&cking medium!"
