Apple has their big event today, with CEO Tim Cook taking the wheel on this one by making the big announcement. (This will be the first time former CEO Steve Jobs failed to unleash a new phone.) Prepare yourselves to be bombarded with iPhone 5 news and "I'm soooo getting one!" Facebook status updates. Ars Technica, gdgt and Engadget will all be liveblogging, if that's how you choose to spend your morning. (And yes, holier-than-thou Sprint customers, there will be a model for your carrier.)

Cook will make the big announcement at around 10 a.m.
