    They aren't on iTunes. There was a dispute some time ago with the Beatles' record company, Apple and Apple Inc. So they haven't allowed their content to be purchased via iTunes.

    Ridiculous really. :rolleyes:

    The two varieties of Apples don't get along too well.

    No, you're not being stupid – they're not on there (or any other legal download site, for that matter), due in no small part to a longstanding dispute between Apple (our favourite computer company) and Apple (the Beatles' record label). You can read more about it here.

    I guess it just goes back to that old saying: you can't mix your Apples and oran... wait a minute.

    Maybe there is still hope. Paul McCartney owns an iPod.

    I nominate this for post of the day.

    I wish the Apples could settle their dispute, merge, and become one big apple. Get it, big apple? Never mind.

    And I'm sure that Steve Jobs owns a Beatles record or two. :D

    It's when the lawyers get involved that everything becomes silly.

    I thought Micheal Jackson owned the rights to The Beatles recordings.

    Sure Apple may hate Apple, but if they don't onw the rights how can thier dispute stop iTunes from selling Beatles tracks?
