Is Today The Day Jobs Unveils iTunes In The Cloud?
(Updated) Don't call your favorite techie at 10AM PT / 1PM ET today, because he'll be glued to a screen monitoring multiple live bloggers cover Steve Job's keynote at Apple's World Wide Developer Conference.
Jobs is going to show off a new iPhone (Who could forget that leak?), an all new Apple TV device; and, at least according to Engadget, some kind of multi-touch trackpad peripheral that brings the same finger based input that Apple has perfected on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad to desktop computers. Cool stuff, but what about iTune's In The Cloud?
Lately the rumor machine has been quiet which could mean that we're not going to hear anything today. Or given Apple's penchant for secrecy, it could mean that an announcement is in the works. We do know that Apple shut down Lala.com - the cloud technology it bought to enhance iTunes - just a week ago. It's also a fact that from MOG to Spotify to Rdio to 7Digital and beyond, cloud based music services are popping up everywhere with the support of all four major labels.
Would Steve Jobs really want to be the last to join the music party in the sky?
