Speculation about Apple's April 28 announcement is swarming around the notion of full-length movie downloads sold through the iTunes music store. Shaw Wu, an analyst with American Technology Research went out on a limb, oddsmaking the chances as greater than 50% that Apple will open up the floodgates for full-length feature films for download next Tuesday. He also joined others in predicting that on that same day, the Cupertino Fruit Company will also announce new iBooks with Intel inside, along with a Mac mini with a remote control and Front Row software on board. Sounds like the timing is right, since Apple enjoyed its one billionth music download just today. Chances are Jobs and Co. have decided it's time to crank it up a notch and move to the next level.
