Beatles come to iTunes at last
Yes, it's official. The Beatles are finally coming to the Internet.
According to an Associated Press story, Apple Inc. will sell music from the Fab Four through iTunes.
Apple Corps Ltd., which manages the band's affairs, had resisted, according to the AP.
The situation was exacerbated by a long-running trademark dispute between Apple Inc. and Apple Corps, AP said, but was resolved in 2007 when the companies agreed on joint use of the apple logo and name.
Most longtime Beatles fans probably already have plenty of their music on iPods, loading CDs into their iTunes library ... or through other, ahem, means.
But it's still great news.
Finally, everything has "come together."
