The economy may be sputtering, Bin Laden may be threatening, Barack Obama may be speaking to Congress, but in the world of tech all anybody seems to care about is the Steve Jobs is packing a new gadget.
No one outside of Cupertino knows for sure what to expect, but that hasn't stopped anybosy from making educated guesses. Assuming Jobs plans to save the best for last, here's what thinks may be coming:

iLife 2010. Apple usually updates its suite of applications for organizing, editing, and publishing photos, movies and music in January, so it would not be surprising, or particularly newsworthy, if they did it again this year.

iPhone 4. Apple has released a new iPhone every summer since 2007. With Google's (GOOG) and Palm (PALM) racing to catch up, you can bet Apple has some surprises up its sleeve. The surprise most people want to hear is that Apple has terminated its exclusive deal with AT&T (T) and will now be making iPhones for Verizon (VZ), T-Mobile (DT) and Sprint (S). It's a long shot, but it could happen Wednesday.

New MacBooks. It's been 232 days since Apple updated the MacBook Pro — a machine it refreshes on average every 200 days. The MacBook Air is also approaching the end of its product cycle. You might see these on Wednesday too.
