Can you hear me cheering?! Beatle Paul McCartney has finally struck a $400 million deal with iTunes to make the Beatles catalog available for download. Even though I do have many Beatles CDs to put on my iPod, I think I just may have been waiting for this news for as long as iTunes has been around.
Last year, the Beatles and Apple resolved their beef over the Apple logo (Apple also being the name/logo of the Beatles' label), but were mum on the availability of Beatles music for download. That deal seems to have paved the way for yesterday's announcement. Classic Beatles albums are expected to top iTunes charts. This is awesome news for digital music and Beatles fans, so I'd like to know, since being excited about this is totally a given, HOW excited are you?
Update: The rumor's been smashed.
