Android-heavy Verizon is about to get a new, fruitier member of the family

"Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!" It looks as though things are finally falling into place for the iPhone 4 launch on Verizon's wireless network. A number of new reports are coming in from around the web, with one of the more humorous ones being from Gizmodo

Gizmodo reports that it has been invited to nearly every Verizon event for the past three years and has a very close relationship with Verizon. However, Gizmodo hasn't been invited for Verizon's big January 11 announcement.

Now why wouldn't Gizmodo be invited to a Verizon press conference? Well, if you remember the "early" reveal of the iPhone 4, you'd know that Steve Jobs was quite livid with Gizmodo for going public with the iPhone 4 prototype -- and Gizmodo hasn't been invited back to an Apple-sponsored event since. With Apple's iPhone being the supposed focus of this event, there's no question that Steve Jobs gave Gizmodo the stink eye.

Gizmodo also notes that other pro-centric bloggers who wouldn't otherwise be invited to a Verizon press event also got invites.

Additional confirmation, this time from a more traditional outlet, came from the Wall Street Journal. The publication says that its sources confirm that the iPhone 4 will be revealed at the Tuesday press conference.

And if that wasn't enough, John Paczkowski of Digital Daily says that none other than Steve Jobs himself will grace the stage during the announcement. We're sure he'll be in his usual black mock turtleneck, jeans, and tennis shoes.

If it finally prints money and will build me an island and transform into a jet to fly me there, like my evo does, I might want it.
