Apple has put a placeholder on its website saying that something big and innovative will be coming to iTunes tomorrow at 7 AM Pacific Time, Apple is already beginning to stir things up by having people guessing as to what they intend to do tomorrow.
Upon visiting Apple’s web site, we’re greeted to its home page with bold words saying to “check back here tomorrow for an exciting announcement from iTunes.” Additionally, clocks are displayed to provide you the knowledge of what specific time to check back according to your time zone. It seems Apple is going to have something in store for everyone come 10:00 AM EST tomorrow.
Just prior to the unveiling of the next generation of iTunes The Apple Lounge has discovered that there are references in iTunes 10.1 for live streaming. The code does imply some real-time streaming system, and Apple’s North Carolina data center is nearing completion. Real-time streaming for videos, music, and other purchased content on iTunes can help Apple rely less heavily on memory and storage as it is evolving its business deeper into mobile. By utilizing network connections, users can stream their purchased content that’s stored at the NC data center rather than having to store those files locally on their devices.
After all,There are many speculations as to what it’s all about, but seeing that there are many things that iTunes is able to encompass, it would only be natural to see if affect the mobile scene. Will we see some kind of new streaming service to compete with Microsoft’s Zune Pass? we won’t have to wait long for Apple to spill the beans, even though it’s still unclear what Apple will announce tomorrow morning.
