Leading up to 090909

Thursday, August 18 I posted that "the (Apple) event held in San Francisco–most likely at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where it has occurred in years past, will not involve any discussion whatsoever of the tablet Apple".
However, do we have any other Dreams come true on this magic date?

On August 18 2009 TechCrunch writes
The Beatles are definitely releasing their music in video game form for a new Rock Band game. That’s a first for them, branching out of traditional music distribution. This game is launching on 9/9/09, which happens to be the same day as the rumored next Apple event.
and previously on Cnet March 5 2009
The date (090909) is awfully cute, considering the Beatles' formally self-titled "White Album" contains that song called "Revolution 9," which consists largely of a repetition of the phrase "number nine, number nine, number nine." Conspiracy theorists say that if you play it backward it sounds like "turn me on, dead man" and is hence one of the clues that adds up to reveal that Paul McCartney died and was replaced by a lookalike early in the band's career.
It all started in November 15 2007 when Sir Paul told:
digital distribution of the Beatles back catalog is happening in 2008, and that the legal hurdles were already mostly cleared.
In Cnet´s News Blog on March 9 2008 we could read :"McCartney has given his approval to make The Beatles' song catalog available on Apple's iTunes in the coming months",

and on April 7 2009 we got the Breaking News from EMI
the release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time, for worldwide CD release on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (9-9-09), the same date as the release of the widely anticipated “The Beatles: Rock Band” video game. Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released,
and yesterday clarifies availability of box sets.

We are ready to listen to Steve Jobs keynote announcing The Beatles on iTune.
I am joining the Countdown 11 days ahead. The ipod / iPhone and "iTablet" format is obviously.
