This may be a loaded (front end or back end?) question but who sold more titles? U2 or Beatles?
Okay. As you all know, my username is BeatleMegaFan, so you probably want to assume that I am a big fan.
Being such a big fan, I happen to know a few rumors about a "Beatle iPod". Plus, recent evidence gives some truth to this big rumor.
Many articles I have found on Google are dated from '06, and one of them states that a Beatle iPod already came out with the entire catalog on the iTMS! This is of course false, and the date was April Fool's. Then it had a link to Wiki April Fool's site, proving it was just a rumor. Furthermore, last year was the big trial of Apple and Apple Corps., in which case Apple Corps. lost. It wasn't until this past February that the two had reached an agreement.
What does this info mean? It mean that a Beatles iPod with the catalog is overdue, that it is upcoming in the future since the two "Apples" have made up, and many people are requesting it, or so it would seem. Now here's what gives this more truth:
Here on Gizmodo,
you see the leaked photos of the new Nano. It has the recent Love compilation remastered by Sir George Martin and Giles Martin. Then, when the iPhone was first show by Steve, it had Beatles music on it. Now, more recently, the last Apple US conference which updated the iPod line, was entitled "The Beat Goes On". This was the title of the last Beatles press conference. And at the unveiling of the Touch, he wanders over to a John Lennon album in Cover Flow, but he is already available on the Store.
He also shows the Love album and the same John Lennon album in Cover Flow.
In some way, Steve is hinting at an agreement with Apple Corps. and the unveiling of a Beatle catalog and iPod like that of the U2 agreement.
Sorry for the long post by the way. Who else has ideas on this? Or am I just a wishful over-obsessed fan? Post your thought here.
