Well, it looks like Apple's just put an end to some of the speculation surrounding its massive data center
in North Carolina. According to AppleInsider
, Apple told shareholders at its annual meeting today that the center is for iTunes and MobileMe (along with Apple's "corporate systems"), and that it is set to open sometime this spring. As you might expect, it doesn't seem like things got much more detailed than that, but the news does certainly lend some credence to earlier rumors of a cloud-based, Lala-infused
iTunes service and a significantly expanded (and possibly free) MobileMe offering
. Here's hoping we'll hear a bit more from Apple itself next week
