Remember the information a few weeks ago about the big event scheduled for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on January 26th? After thousands of posts have touted that date as the day that Steve Jobs will come down from the mountain carrying the 7″ tablet under one arm and the 10.1″ tablet under the other, the Wall Street Journal’s Digital Daily is reporting that the event is going to be held on Wednesday, January 27th.

According to Digital Daily’s John Paczkowski, sources have told him that this event is planned to announce a “major new product.” We’re all assuming that this is going to be the most widely-hyped product since the iPhone, so wouldn’t it be hilarious if it was actually something completely different? I, for one, am beginning to think that Apple is going to pull one of the biggest pranks ever on the world at large.
