Will Apple skip its usual February/March product launch window?

In the past few years, Apple has regularly announced and launched products in the February/March time frame.

Previously, this was the time when new iPads were launched, but Apple did an unusual thing this past October by releasing the 4th generation iPad (the one with the Lightning connector) and the iPad Mini before the holidays.

This time slot has also been when the Apple TV products have been announced, though usually to far less fanfare.

So what does Apple have in store for us these wintry months? Is this the quiet before the storm? Is the fabled Apple TV on its way? Where's the chatter? the Mr. BlurryCam photo leaks? Did Tim Cook succeed in double-downing on secrecy?
