Speculating on yesterday’s news from Linkin Park (really? Apple?  Linkin Park?) front man Mike Shinoda on an upcoming special event, the New York Times is speculating that Apple will announce an end to DRM on iTunes.  It certainly makes sense since Apple has spearheaded the charge against DRM laced music (Apple is fine, it appears, with DRM video) and Amazon has been offering DRM free MP3’s from all of the major labels since last year.

Other things on the agenda?  Hopefully those MacBook Pros, the SDK and, of course, the Beatles (ha:P).

Update: Turns out that the rumor isn’t true – just a special show at the SoHo store.
