The Amazing Invisible iPad Mini

4:50 PM -- Well, it's been a long and busy week for me anyway, but -- sitting at the grotty Bloody Mary's bar at San Diego International Airport Thursday night -- I realized that something was missing.

What could it be? Oh yeah, what happened to the invitation to the purported Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad Mini launch event on Oct. 10? (See Rumor: Apple iPad Mini Coming in November?)

I'll admit it. After so many of the iPhone 5 details got leaked before the launch, it seemed like a much-rumored iPad Mini could be next. But -- mea culpa -- I should have read the latest Fortune rumor about the mini iPad more closely. They even say a "major Apple investor" told them it would it happen. So, someone with a vested interest in moving Apple stock -- slaps head -- said something big would happen.

It all reminds me of a song somehow:

But, will we or won't we?

Information Week says the launch is now on October 27 and a fully loaded iPad Mini could cost up to $840! You buyin' it?
