“Steve Jobs, Bono and The Edge invite you to a special event,”read the invite to this event. That guaranteed an appearance (and performance, everyone assumed) by the U2 musicians, which presumably meant the event was music-themed. Rumor had it that it could feature a photo-capable iPod, an iPod preloaded with U2’s catalog…maybe even a flash-based iPod.
It turned out to be:
Photo-ready iPods and a special U2 iPod (no preloaded music, but you could buy the band’s complete works in downloadable form). And yes, a performance by Bono and the Edge. No flash player, though.
