So much for streaming music, streaming movies or anything else which could have seen today’s iTunes announcement linger in our memories the way Apple promised. Instead, we have the news that legendary Liverpudlian band The Beatles are finally available to download.
All of the studio albums and collections are up for sale, priced at $12.99/£10.99 or $19.99/£17.99, and they come with iTunes LP content such as photos, liner notes and lyrics. If you would prefer just to own everything, then a set containing all of the available content, plus some mini-documentaries and footage of The Beatles first US performance, is yours for $149/£125.
It’s our fault really, Apple have had such a run of interesting launches this year, we gave this more attention than it probably deserved. What’s the betting we won’t learn?
