Apple’s “Back to the Mac” Event on October 20, 2010

According to TUAW and many others, Apple is holding a special “Back to the Mac” event next Wednesday, October 20. As you can see in the image above that I captured from TUAW, the image of a lion is mapped to the inner surface of the 3D Apple logo, so this could mean that the next iteration of Mac OS X will be code named Lion. Also, I am wondering about the beveled corners on the image. I browsed the same image on several non-referring announcements online for the event and they all have the bevel. Could Apple be reintroducing beveled corners to the Mac OS X menu bar? Square corners has always felt too PC to me.
