Paul McCartney is now saying the Beatles catalog won't be available on iTunes until sometime next year. Yeah so? Maybe I don't get it, but didn't the "digitalization" of the Beatles catalog happen more than twenty years ago when they put out the CDs? So why are iTunes buyers a vast untapped Beatles market? The catalog is already online--if you have a hankering for Abbey Road buy the CD from Amazon and rip it right now.
I could give a hoot about the long-running legal feud between the Beatles' music label Apple Corps and Steve Jobs' Apple, and their endless haggling over the deal. Aren't Steve Jobs and Sir Paul rich enough already?
