Apple Promises Unforgettable iTunes Announcement Coming on Tuesday, Teaser Announcement from iTunes
Apple today updated the front page of its website posting a teaser which promises us that “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget” Check back here tomorrow for an exciting announcement from iTunes.
An “exciting announcement” regarding iTunes is coming at 10:00 AM Eastern time. There have been no specific hints what the announcement might be related to.
Perhaps, it will be a cloud-based iTunes service to stream content from the new data center the company has built in North Carolina. Although, Peter Kafka from AllThingsD believes it’s unlikely that Music Subscriptions or Streaming will be announced by Apple tomorrow.
Many hope that tomorrow will move iTunes into the cloud; however, Kafka’s industry sources put a damper on that possibility.
The music industry sources I’ve talked to so far today don’t know of any new deals between Apple and the big music labels. So that would rule out a new subscription service, which would definitely require a new rights deal.
And that also makes it very unlikely that Apple does the next best thing: Letting users upload their iTunes catalog to the cloud, and letting them access it anywhere they want.
What do you guys think? I guess we will find out tomorrow…
