Yoko Ono, widow of Beatle John Lennon says The Beatles are coming to Apple’s iTunes Store. Maybe, but soon? Wouldn’t they rather sell the CDs for six months, then make the tracks available on iTunes? What difference will The Beatles make to the iTunes Store? MacDailyNews:
Apple’s iTunes Store will become “real” to many millions who’ve never purchased a single track online. The Beatles’ stamp of approval will make iTunes Store and the concept of digital downloads something that’s finally worth looking into for many who haven’t done so yet. That’s the real significance of the arrival of The Beatles in Apple’s iTunes Store, not that those of us yet to reach a certain age have long ago ripped our Beatles CDs to iTunes.
“The Beatles stamp of approval?” I don’t buy that. Oldies who remember The Beatles won’t be any more turned on to iTunes purchases just because they can buy Beatles tracks.
