Yesterday Apple teased a big iTunes announcement on the Apple.com site for today 10am EST. At first it was not clear what this is about, but we already reported yesterday that it could be related to the Beatles. Now reports on the NY Times and Wall Street Journal report that Apple has reached a deal to offer Beatles songs on iTunes. This is not confirmed and both outlets refer to sources familiar with the matter. The Beatles iTunes controversy is already going on since years.

The Beatles coming to iTunes was the most likely explanation for Apple to announce something without a media event. Maybe Apple has though something big planned to present the Beatles entry on iTunes. Live event with Paul McCartney?
Update:

Beatles Songs are now on sale on iTunes.

I am not convinced though that the Beatles songs will right away become the top selling songs on iTunes. I expect most people already own Beatles CD from before the digital music download era - just rip these if you have not done so already.

The only reason to get Beatles is maybe quality. Last year the Beatles Remastered got released. The Beatles Remastered Box Set is though a nice thing to own physically. It is also still a great holiday gift idea.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
