Before anything else, I’d like to bring up the fact that I am a big Beatles fan, and September 9, 2009, is one of the most highly-anticipated dates of my fanboy life. You see, 09/09/09 is when they will newly-remastered complete Beatles catalog. And for us fanboys who have put up with the tinny-sounding official releases or have scrounched file-sharing networks for vinyl rips of their songs, this is going to be a big relief for us. No more backyard remastering! Yay!
Also, to be released on 09/09/09 is The Beatles Rock Band. I don’t think I need more words to blow your mind with how awesome that is.
Moving on. This is the part where I’m going for full speculation, and please indulge me, people.
We all know that Apple will be unveiling a new iPod line, right? I mean, we’re waiting for the nanos with still cameras and the iPod touches with video capture capabilities. Yes, I’m just as excited as you are.
But guess when they’ll be holding the new media event where new iPods are expected to come out.
You guessed it, September 9, 2009.
Apple declined to say what products would be featured at the Sept. 9 event, which was announced in an invitation emailed to members of the media.
The invitation featured an iPod and the tagline: “It’s only rock and roll, but we like it,” a reference to a Rolling Stones song.
What do you think guys? It would be sweet if 09/09/09 would be finally the day we get to see the entire Beatles catalog on the iTunes store. Now that Apple Corps and Apple Computers have already settled their trademark squabble ages ago, us Apple and Beatles nerds can only hope for the best.
