It's about time.


... I've already got all my Beatles' CDs ripped onto my iPod! ... I don't get it?!?!?!?!?!?!?


There are more people in the world than you Greg. For example young ones who have never heard about the band before, or adults/older people who didn't buy the vinyl, cassettes or CD's.


That's a pretty sweet deal apple inc, got, even though i'm sure some of the agreement included apple inc. only taking a minimal cut of the money from each album or track and who knows what else, probably free promotion on top.


Wall Street Journal:

Under the terms, Apple Inc.'s digital media store is the Beatles' exclusive online retailer at least until January, Mr. Faxon said in an interview Tuesday, after the much-awaited deal was announced.

I still don't think its that big of a deal. Especially with the hype apple put up about it.

Not sure anyone noticed, Amazon also quickly put Beatles CD back catalog titles for sale at less than the iTunes download prices...including box sets.
