Next Wednesday is 09.09.09—a big day for the music business thanks to the release of the remastered Beatles catalog on CD, as well as the Fab Four’s very own, very splashy installment in the Rock Band
franchise. So why would Apple schedule a big event for that day, and why would said event be presaged by an invitation with an old-school iPod silhouette-dancer and a slightly mangled Rolling Stones
lyric? Is it to throw everyone off the Beatles-on-iTunes
scent, or something more sinister? Hmm. Hmmm!
