- Cloud based storage on iTunes
- Possible new iTunes X with full 644bit support . Bulit from the ground up.
Remember kids, its going to be in N.C. if you live on the west coast, better get up a bit early to get reay for school, as its going to be streaming at 7am

odds are highly against the cloud based iTunes (or really anything iTunes+cloud) as Apple is still trying to build relations with media groups and a move like this would put a huge strain on them (there afraid of there content going anywhere)

There is now talk of the Beatles coming to iTunes and I think that's a great idea. We need something to kill the top charts featuing Katy Perry or Justin bebber, you know an artist who's actually worth listing too, and trust me. The Beatles DID change the music industry.
Of course, something else. Like I said, if the data center opens in NC tomorrow, perhaps we will see a new iTunes X with streaming capabilities. (I'd still keep a copy of my files locally, as I do with anything I upload online)

Boy Genius Report shows that streaming media references are in some of the code that was released in the newset version of iTunes that just came out, take a look.

Lots of [selfish] younger users are under the impression that if Apple doesn't announce an iDevice, or new software for said iDevice, that it's pointless and worthless.
Keep in mind that Steve Jobs is, himself, a baby boomer. We are the generation with the most disposable income - and the love of the culture created by the Beatles.
If you're disappointed, get over it. You don't hear the rest of us whining like spoiled brats because AppleTV won't run the dishwasher.

I think many expected to much. (and they always expect too much when it comes to Apple announcements) on the blog, where were multiple comments on how Apple only caters to the "young people". You want to tell that to my 66 year old aunt who owns a macbook? Apple carters to ALL generations, not just spoiled 13 year old boys and girls.
Just remember kids. Look at whos running Apple. Yes, its STEVE JOBS. Not you, not me. Not Antoine Dodson and not Mel Gibson (we know how that would be) but Steve Jobs. He's been tring for years to get the beatles on iTunes, and remember, before today there was no way to get The Beatles digitally. You keep telling people to rip and such. Thats not how a business works. You can be a fan of something and stil not own everything about them.
I'm 20, but I never got in to todays kind of music. (seriously, whats the point of them? They have no meaning. Songs are ment to have meaning!) I do like the beatles and may be downloading some of their songs.

I think people are annoyed at how Apple handled the situation. They couldve announced a teaser or done something for the many people who have other wants from getting let down.
To me it was a huge ego trip for Jobs. He basically just declared victory over the music industry with this. He has conquered the old business model and planted his yellow submarine branded flag for all to see...
But in reality this shouldve been accomplished years ago and he should allow album only sales for artists that want that on itunes. This is more of a victory celebration for Jobs personally that it is a boon for Beatles fans, and that is why Im turned off by the "day we will never forget."

and to be honest, what would be so exciting over cloud based storage? Storage is storage. Even if there is a shinny Apple logo on it and the UI for the software is Sliver and Chrome. I fail to see how Apple can change storage unless somehow, someway you can access it from iPhones and iPod touches and just stream over the air.

I dobut we will ever see a subscription based service. I mean, if you don't pay for the subscription, you loose the music

People are just very selfish. Simple as that.
