So how does this effect the functional use of your computer or phone ??? If your not interested ignore it.

1 . The fact you say the Beatles suck brings your credibility into question.
2. If you weren't aware that iTunes is a huge part of apples business for 10 years. And apple tv and it's likely full tv successor, appear to be the next big thing that they are working on. Then you should climb out from under the rock.
3. How is broadcasting a live concert making a political statement ?

I completely respect Paul McCartney's contribition to music - obviously - but I just don't understand Apple's continued fascination with him. He's not made a good record since 1973.

If Apple want to promote Apple TV/iTunes, then why not choose a more relevant band with music that appeals to a cross-generation audience?

Big whoop...yet more Beatles junk. Cant stand McCartney...very much full of himself. I know the americans have thing strange thing about the Beatles, and whilst sure they made great music they are very much overhyped and very irrelevant today. Its funny though, we dont really hear anything about them or McCartney at all in the UK as we simply dont care.

Personally I'd hardly call this awesome, amazing, etc.

It's clear Apple agree and know that the only people who really still give a damn about this guy is people in the US given that it'll be on at 3AM in the UK.

As someone else said: Retire already!

Too bad you don't like em, they did a lot for the world of music.

Paul McCartney solo? Yeah, don't care much for that either.

Apple started selling content before they started selling phones... Nothing new here.

How would Apple be better in making phones or computers if they stopped supplying content?

How so ? Just because he/she doesn't like them doesn't mean they "suck"? It's just a lame comment. and combine that with the baseless rambling about agnostic politics and tech companies - all adds up to a lack of credibility to me.

If your not into the Beatles McCartney etc and think it irrelevant, that's fine ... But Move along, and why bother posting it ? Yes we all have our own tastes... But No one asked for your musical opinions.

Wow! What an odd rant. It has more do with selling phones and content delivery than it does spiritual or religous beliefs. Go and bore another forum with inane ramblings.

Not sure what UK you're living in, but it's not the United Kingdom.

There is no arguing taste. I cannot criticize or evaluate current music as I know nothing about it. What little I have heard does not appeal to me - but that means nothing - it's just my taste.

The Beatles wrote music of the time. They were innovators, both musically and technically. Was every song great? Of course not. But their contribution to the development of music is,IMO, undeniable.

As far as Siri lecturing you on being nicer... well...no harm done.

Really guys, what did you expect Apple to live stream? Not the likes of M.I.A...


I'm pretty sure Sir Paul will act gentlemanly and non-controversial as he sings Baby Boomers to sleep.

Heil to the King of Trolls!

I wonder where you copy-and-paste the above from. It definitely makes no sense in this thread. An I bet you don't even understand most of it.
Here's some advise for you:
Don't do drugs, stay in school, don't listen to crap music and don't pop your zits!
You do that, and you may survive puberty.
