    I love the Beatles, I know A LOT about the Beatles. I can play a lot of Beatles songs on the guitar. I love the Beatles. But I really don't care that they're not on iTunes.

    I mean, its not like we all don't have an easy way to get the entire discography (if you don't already have it) someplace else.This doesn't seem to be much of a gripe from Mac Users as much as media outlets (Wired Mag, and Engadget in particular).

    Whats the big deal about the Beatles being on iTunes store?

    I don't really care for The Beatles, but if one is such a 'Beatles fan', they would have bought all of their music in the first place, thus negating the need for them to be in the 'store. My opinion.. Also, Beatles fans, please don't gnaw my arm off for my post!

    I am pretty sure that most people who enjoy the Beetles have already ripped their Beetle's CDs into iTunes. I think The Apple Vs. Apple killed what would have been great revenue for both companies.

    I grew up listening to the Beatles in the sixties and absolutely love them but it's no big deal to me personally if they are on iTunes because I already have all their albums.

    Because they are the most popular band ever, there will be a lot of prestige for the first company to offer their music to download, so it would be great for iTunes to get them.

    I don't think you are going to see their music on any (legal) download site before the re-mastered CDs are released.

    I'm not a big beatles freak, so I don't see the big deal.

    Most big Beatles fans have the CDs, so why bother with iTunes anywho?

    1. As a Beatles fan, I hope that there is some "new" material. Either demos/rehearsals/etc. (however, almost anything worthwhile was released back in the Anthologies) or live material. Surprise me.

    2. Otherwise, it will generate "buzz" for iTunes and get a good amount of "walk-up" business from people who haven't explored iTunes yet, and might now get curious. My parents come to mind.
