Apple's agenda for the media event?

Ok, it's time for some last-minute rumor mongering. A little birdie just flew into TUAW headquarters (a little birdie who wishes to remain anonymous) and told us the following. Remember, this is all rumor, folks, but it sounds like it could be legit to us. Here we go.

"...Let's just say I have been informed by a little reliable birdy about Tomorrow's event. The line-up will follow this similar structure:
  • Welcoming of Media Members
  • Discussion on iTunes software, iTMS integration into iTunes, and iTMS sales and facts.
  • Announcement of iTunes version 7.0
  • Announces better search feature for Music Store
  • Announces Movie Store. Available Immediately will be movies from Disney and Pixar, among other studios.
  • New iPod Nano Announcement (nice brushed casing, while it will have same features as first gen, only a longer battery life)
  • New iPod Announcement (Widescreen, Bluetooth, and featuring virtual touchweel. Does not include Wi-Fi, or any other protocols)
  • One More Thing....TubePort. A $99 2-piece set that includes a dongle that connects via USB to your mac, and another dongle that connects via included HD cables or regular Component cables to your TV. The movie is accessed on your Mac via an iDisk-like storage component hosted by Apple.
Jobs will then explain the pricing structure of the Movie Store. Movies will be available as either a smaller iPod-format (which will cost $9.99 per movie), or as a larger, streamed movie to be streamed to your TV via TubePort. This cost $14.99 per movie. To purchase an iPod-formatted movie and a streamed version of the same movie, it will cost you $19.99."

Do with that what you will (We agree that "TubePort" is a really lame-sounding name).
