The Beatles on iTunes but Do People Care?

[singlepic id=48 w=320 h=240 float=centre]The Beatles have thrown in the towel and finally allowed their music to be digitally downloaded via iTunes after years of legal wrangling and discussions.

Steve Jobs, an avid Beatles fan, had previously tried and failed to coax the Beatles to allow their music to be added to the millions of other artists on iTunes. Songs can now be purchased for 99p each with each of the 13 albums available to download in full from the iTunes store. Mega fans might also be interested in purchasing the entire back catalogue for £125 (but if they were mega fans they might already have the entire back catalogue).

The news has split opinions with the majority of people agreeing that the announcement was a bit of an anti-climax. I for one think that the build up was way over the top and will be much more wary of corporate shenanigans in the future.

That said I am sure there will be plenty that will be really happy with the news, personally I love the Beatles but am dissapointed with today’s revalation. I would love to find what people think, so please answer the following poll.
