WSJ: Apple to announce arrival of Beatles catalog on iTunes - Page 3

That's why there hasn't been any of their music on iTunes.

I don't think that's quite right, because that doesn't explain why The Beatles aren't on any legal music download site at all. There are negotiations going on, the remaining Beatles and the estates of the deceased Beatles have been saying that much.

As soon as the value of Metallica's catalog matches that of Beatles', Apple promises a unforgiven day.

Will it look good?

No one who matters cares.

It's a waste of money. The beatles were cool - like 30 years ago. Get OVER it. Apple should know better than to drum up attention for something most people who will see this notice couldn't give a flying fudge for.

Some of the tunes are nice. But this is not worthy of our attention and unless there is something modern or tech related they are wasting my time with this announcement.

Steve jobs matters. and he cares.
on the other hand, no one cares for you, and you don't matter.

Appleinsider is the King of iHype. Quoting morons like Jon Gruber who never gets stuff right or say things that are obvious to everyone. Notice how these types never say they were wrong? How many times did AI say that the new Mac Pro's were coming, but got it wrong again and again.

The iHype is getting so bad its having a negative effect, because the truth is always a let down now.

Beatles on iTunes......so what. I ripped my CD's years ago, and dont even listen to them often any more.

Thanks, for your sanity.

What are you talking about? I specifically went out of my way to say "no offense to Australians meant". Grow a pair, Jesus. I have nothing against Australians, I just mentioned he was Australian because I didn't want to type his name. End of story.

I don't accept that. Why is it that you can't acknowledge that there are better ways to identify this person than by his nationality? "no offense" is a lame cover, I often consider it a cop-out phrase. I think you know better. At least I think you should.

Well you are going to have to. I meant know harm and that's what matters. I couldn't care less if people called Bono 'that Irish idiot'. You need some thicker skin.

Cover? You got to be kidding me? Go play some chess or something.

If you think it's about thick skin, you're flat wrong. I'm not Australian, and have no significant stake there, but I can imagine that some Australians really don't want to be associated with him.

I find it comical that you're unwilling to name him, but then you're telling other people to get a thicker skin. As distasteful as Murdoch's influence is, he's not a Voldemort or Cthulu kind of character. It's like you're telling other people to grow balls while not willing to set yourself to the same standard.

I am not going to stimulate this rant any further. I have said all I have to say.
