All of the Mac sites have been running crazy April Fools Day stories today. But this one, from Macworld, is either the real deal or a damned good hoax.
Apple and EMI plan joint announcement Monday
Apple boss Steve Jobs will join EMI chief Eric Nicoli to announce 'digital offering'
Apple CEO Steve Jobs will appear at a joint EMI and Apple press conference on Monday 2 April at 1pm...
The invitation reads: "Please join EMI Group CEO Eric Nicoli at EMI’s headquarters on Monday 2 April at 1pm London/8am New York time to hear about an exciting new digital offering, with special guest, Apple CEO Steve Jobs."
A special live performance by an unannounced artist will also feature at the event, the invitation confirms.
And then, either the letdown, or the admission by negation:
This event takes place after months of rumours claiming that music from The Beatles will be made available through iTunes, but Macworld sources have warned that tomorrow's announcement is not related to that particular piece of speculation.
