    Forum member ShadowSoldier writes in to tip us off about a possible special event involving Linkin Park and Apple in New York City;

    From Mike Shinoda's official website:
    "Looking forward to our first show at madison square garden this week (sold out)! also, look forward to a special show that we’re doing in NYC in conjunction with apple…shh…it’s a secret"

    AppleInsider.com speculates that the company may soon announce their software developer's kit (SDK) towards the end of the month, but how this relates to Linkin Park is yet to be seen. We'll keep you posted.

    Or, to think something off the top of my head and possibly start more speculation, perhaps Apple is set to release a special edition LP iPhone/iPod Touch like they did with the U2-themed iPod from a few years ago.

    Source: MikeShinoda.com and AppleInsider.

    Additionally, the band won an Echo Award in Germany over the weekend, which Mike likened to Germany's "equivalent of a Grammy". Congrats to the band!

    I wonder what the Apple thing is all about.

    Congrats to Linkin Park for the award.

    They could be announcing it with the band in attendance? That's why it would be a secret.

    Linkin Park iPod? Hmmm... sounds interesting. And like something Apple would pull out to boost sales.

    If they make a LP Themed iPhone/iTouch, I'd be very happy! Congrats to LP for getting the award!

    As for this secret event, anything involving Apple and especially LP and Apple together, must be awesome.

    actually, the other day i heard an ad on the radio (WIHT 99.5) for a contest to win tickets to see linkin park at the 1st Mariner Arena show tonight and to see a special private show for itunes in nyc. so it's probably just for one of those itunes exclusive live shows that they have.

    In the most recent apple press conference (the one where they unveiled the mac book air) Steve Jobs was demonstrating downloading music videos on some device (think it may have been the new apple tv model) and he showed a sample of the What I've Done video...That probably has nothing to do with this, just thought I'd bring it up.

    I would buy a custom Linkin Park IPod if it had a design by Mike :).

    Enough said.

    Yeah like Derek said, I'd get it. Even though I have a 30GB iPod Video, 80GB 6th Gen iPod, and an iPod Touch.
