    Who cares, really who cares, if you wanted Beetles you already went and got Beetles.

    Whoopee Doopee Du.

    SJ I don't care that you finally got your fave band on board, it does nothing for me.

    Really worthy of a front page announcement,media blitz and hoopla, I think not.\

    seriously, they don't know squat about popular music nor the impact and influence the beatles have had on the music business worldwide.

    Amazing. People just LOVE to complain, don't they?

    And knowing it, I am still continuing to enjoy them.

    Exactly...I don't even buy my food. The 90 year old lady who lives next door gave me her keys incase something happens to her. I just go over there and open her fridge and take what I want. Same with my newspaper. The kid across the street from me is a delivery boy. Every morning when his papers get dropped off I go over there before he wakes up and take what I want. Same with my kid. My wife works at a hospital. I just went over there and took a baby I thought looked like me.

    One: You are not interested in them being on iTunes ... so no reply at all.

    Two: still not interested so post a reply that says , essentially, not for me but if you like them, go for it.

    Three: your post ... "What a waste of time, any genuine fan would already own the god damn cd's, stupid shitty announcement!"



    It's interesting (and sad) to me, that out of two positive and one negative, and obviously angry, replies ... you would choose the negative.



    My mother, bless her soul, always told me .... that if you can't say something nice ... don't say anything at all. I never realized, until after she was gone, just how important that philosophy was.



    What's really sad to me is that you are probably in the majority, in this day and age ... truly a sad commentary on or society, as a whole. \



    What's sad to me also is that Saarek chose the name of a well-respected, revered character from the Star Trek universe. Spock's father, may have been Vulcan to a tee, but at least he was respected by his people and in the end proved to be open-minded about Spock's dual nature.



    This cat calling himself Saarek exhibits nothing but ignorance and disrespect with this troll post, and proves himself to be nothing more than a child.

    Yes, said with tongue in cheek. But Blade Runner puts me to sleep during Act II, every time.

    I would say that with 2 whole posts to your name you're either an astroturfer or a paid troll. But in any event, nobody takes you seriously.

    Blade Runner and 2001, two of the greatest movies ever made that are painfully dull, but at least I?ve been able to finish Blade Runner.

    By viewing all negative comments here, probably some of them were born in 80' or even 90', I understand the meaning of Beatles in iTunes now.



    I received my first Beatle's album as a Christmas present from my Brother in December of 1963. I was 12. It was the first "album" released in Canada, Beatlemania with the Beatles. Life was honestly never the same again. The Beatles changed my life in a very positive way.



    So... as you can see... I'm biased.



    Bring it on...

    It?s amazing that you still don?t understand the basic context and usage of written language.

    It's amazing that you still don't understand a simple definition. CDs are digital, that is a simple fact, just because you want to change the definition doesn't mean the rest of the world does.



    Maybe you can write to IEC and ask them to change the definition?

    For example, the USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, etc.



    They didn't release a music service, they just added some new albums to iTunes

    No one has changed the definition, you simply can?t understand that digital is colloquial for digital download and that CD or optical is instructive enough to keep it from being confusing. Just like you get upset over iDevice and iTouch even though they aren?t product names from Apple. You?re anal retentive and you think that what little knowledge you do have should be expressed as pedantically as possible, but it doesn?t make you correct as you?ve missed the point yet again that we all know the difference.

    I thought iTunes sells yesteryears individual songs for $ 0,79 yesterdays for $0,99 and latest releases for $ 1,29. If that's still the case then why aren't they being sold for 79 cents?

    You're mixing me up with "Sarek" subtle spelling difference I'll give you that, still shows your own ignorance.

    No it isn't, just because you want it like that, doesn't change the fact that digital relates to to something being represented by a descrete value, the word digital is then followed by something else, Digital TV, Digital Music, Digital Download.



    Your digital download music still has to be stored on something physical.



    If you don't like this fact, then stop replying to me, I know you always want to be right, I know this is an issue with you, remember, help is available, contact your local medical professional, they can help you. If you don't want to get help, get over it, you are wrong, end of story.

    I agree that CDs are not considered "digital" in the true sense i.e. digital downloads.



    Otherwise you could say we were in the digital age in the 70s because there were transistors and solid state.



    Digital in the context of the internet and downloads means something that can be obtained via the cloud.



    I'm pretty sure that physical compact discs cannot be downloaded through fibre optics. Maybe with teleporters.
