Nope. The “unforgettable announcement” was that—wait for it—no, seriously, are you sitting down?—they were going to have The Beatles catalogue available on iTunes.
Pardon me for not giving a flying crap.
I know Steve Jobs isn’t necessarily the most hip cat out there, but if he and his yes-persons at Apple think that everyone still thinks The Beatles are the end-all, be-all of popular music, then he clearly hasn’t been bothering to see what sells on iTunes. As a commenter on AppleInsider said, “This is the most important music news of 2003.”
Edit: Oh, and I know that The Beatles are the biggest selling group of All Time and heaven and earth bow at their feet and baby boomers still scream their name during Cialis-induced sex and what not, but I still don’t care. When Apple says that there’s going to be some game-changing announcement, I expect a bit more than…The Beatles. Just sayin’.
