Putting their catalog on Apple’s music store wouldn’t make it a day I’d never forget
Okay. Maybe. We’ve been down this long and winding road too often in the past two years to hold our breath.
And even if there is a Beatles announcement Tuesday at 10 a.m. EST (7 a.m. PST) — the appointed hour according apple.com‘s full-page promo — would that make it, as promised, “a day you’ll never forget”?
We find Billboard’s “clues” — a McCartney song title, the hands of the four clocks resembling the band members arms on the “Help!” album cover — unconvincing. If you’re looking for clues, we’d be inclined to focus on “forgetting” — as in memory and storage.
Maybe we’ll get the Beatles. But I’m putting my money on the cloud — in the form of Apple’s ginormous new server farm in North Carolina — as a place to store files that (we hope) will never be forgotten.
