Not necessarily - subscription based music stores like Rhapsody and Yahoo Music, Napster, etc have been doing terribly. In fact, Yahoo Music Unlimited ceases operations on the 30th of September -people are just not interested in subscription-based music stores. Which honestly, I don't get because I happen to like this model and used Yahoo Music for quite awhile - a great way to sample new music.

In any case, I very much doubt Apple will announce such a thing today - most likely anything iTunes related will be iTunes 8, with things like the Genius music recommendation system, new visualizations, etc but not much in the way of fundamental changes.

I'm really hoping Steve will pull a mind-blowing "one more thing" but I think it's going to be a pretty underwhelming event with changes to the iPod line and not much more...

All I expect from this event is to be bored off my tits... So instead of reading up on the live blogs I've found this new site which will blow the pants off the apple event. Its edge of ur seat stuff....

I do hope apple would shock me and release something interesting but I doubt it... All I expect is different shape/colour/size ipods, different prices, bigger menus and for them to ship without a usb cable(as I think thats all the do ship with now, compared to the good old days....)

Macrumors probably. They have a twitter account for these things. I'm not too bothered though, it's just a glorified press conference not Macworld.

iTunes 8 and FW 2.1 for the iphone and Touch should be released. I wouldn't be surprised if we'll see the subscription iTunes. The new iPod upgrades seem to be bit of a snooze, nothing exciting by the sound of things.

iTunes 8... more bloat.

Genius sounds interesting though.
