Apple announcements tomorrow 6:00EST/3:00PST

“Apple, the US computer maker, is expected to launch its popular internet music store in Europe tomorrow, in an attempt to build on the company’s considerable success in the US online music market. [...]

One person in the industry said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, was expected to be on hand to announce Apple’s music store would immediately be available to consumers in the UK, Germany and France. Mr Jobs was also expected to announce plans to eventually roll out the service to other European countries.”

Apple’s press event will take place at approximately 11:00AM local time in London, England (6:00AM Eastern Standard Time and 3:00AM Pacific Standard Time, United States). Additional announcements regarding new iTunes and iPod pricing, availability, and accessories may be included in the presentation. Join iLounge tomorrow morning for full coverage of the event.

If the store is opened only in the UK, France and Germany and if the indies are not included… Apple fails BIG time! So us silly folks in the rest if Europe can wait for another six or twelve months before we are able to buy those exclusive iTunes-only tunes (like the new Pixies song).

A few questions, is this going to be live coverage, and where is the link to the page that is going to be updating us to the announcements?

This isn’t a slam on Canadians (since you’re only an hour north of me and you’d probably kick my butt) but don’t you guys get to download music from P2P for free anyway?  I thought that a purchase of a mp3 player had some sort of exra price in it that the manufacture paid Canada so artist/record labels got some money for the P2P thing. If I didn’t have to worry about swapping songs that way, I’d definitely be downloading to my hearts content.  If this is true, why the fuss?

Its 11 am here and no announcement?

Posted by loGan on June 15, 2004 at 4:08 AM (CDT)

It starts at 11 am so I guess it takes a while for the press conference to end and for the media/Apple to publish the news.

Can anyone confirm this is going to be a live announcement, or have a link to one?  I can’t find anything anywhere.

Where is it? It’s not come up yet.

Waiting for it, too. Press conference should have started 15 min ago. Have checked all the Apple rumour sites but could not find a live coverage…

Is this a hoax do you suppose?

Posted by Dr Pod on June 15, 2004 at 4:19 AM (CDT)

17

Yes. A hoax. That’s exactly what it is.

‘Cause, you know, it’s not *actually* possible for a private press event to be, well, private. [/sarcasm]

If that place doesn’t offer WiFi access, how are the people in there supposed to get the news to their websites until the press conference has finished? If it started at 11am, I’m sure it’ll last until 11:45 or something like that.

Extra Extra, Read All About IT!!!

This just in, Apple will release the 4th gen IPOD along with the ITMS Europe. The Ipod will be priced at 399 dollars for a 60 gig.

Also in the works, Apple will soon sell its APPLE ipod car receiver. Coupled with the ipod, this cd player/ Hard Drive Ipod link will make finally a perfect solution to the way the majority of people listen to music, IN THEIR CARS>>>
