Apple’s Yellow Submarine Video iPod?

January 23, 2007

Apple Recon is reporting an Apple Event will occur on February 20.

But the most interesting item is in the Comments from someone pseudonymed BootPolish:

The Feb 20 announcements will include… Widescreen iPod, available in a special yellow edition sold with a coupon to download the entire Beatles songbook ($250 value). Ringo and the Nimrod CEO from Apple Corps will show up onstage with Steve to announce the new Apple-Apple truce, but in spite of the wonderful news (all re-mastered Beatles songs available exclusively on iTunes for 3 months), people are crushed that McCartney isn’t there too (prior commitments, and McCartney’s lawyers will not have finished excluding Heather Mills from any iTMS royalty sharing).

This sounds so like Apple that I’m inclined to believe it!

Remember: Apple put out that special (Red) edition of the iPod nano.

Hell yes I’d walk around with a goofy Yellow Submarine widescreened True Video iPod!

And I think many others would too.

Uh, a Zune? What’s that again?

New Book Planning Underway

Today the headache was out getting coffee or something, so I got busy on the scribble caper, and whomped up another fresh batch of notes for the new book idea. It’s a sf murder/mystery, but set in the present day, and possibly here in Oz. Which should startle Publisher Brian no end. Where/when it’s set is not crucial to the story, though, so I might be changing it. All I’m mainly interested in is Doing Something Completely Different: after three published books set in the same universe (and at least two failed books also set there), I’m more than a little burned out on that setting. It also means people interested in reading the new book won’t have to worry about not having read all these other books, something I’m very concerned about.

Go get Orbital Burn, dammit!
