No Jobs Keynote Paris 2006

Until recently, Steve Jobs was a mainstay of the yearly Apple Expo in Paris. The event, which usually takes place at the end of summer, has often been used by Jobs to showcase new products from Apple that were set to launch for the holidays. His presence as the keynote speaker is often a sign that a major product announcement is expected. The likelihood of such news has been mitigated for Apple Expo 2006, which begins September 12th; Jobs will not speak at this year's event, the organizing company Reed Expositions said today. While this does not rule out the use of Apple Expo as publicity for new products from Apple, the computer and iPod maker has historically turned down keynote offers when updates are minor at best.
