The Beatles on iTunes...sort of...

The Beatles are still the biggest act that hasn't allowed their music to be released for sale on digital download sites such as iTunes. Yet, now three of the four Beatles (or their estates) have released their entire solo catalog available for download. Paul McCartney was the first to do it, coinciding with the release of his new studio album, then John Lennon, and now Ringo Starr, and I'm sure it's just a matter of time before George Harrison's estate allows the release of his solo work. All this points to a day, hopefully in the near future, when Apple (the Beatles' infamous attempt at creating a record company) will allow the release of all its holdings to Apple (the famous computer company), including, but not limited to, the Beatles recordings.

Imagine the hype: Apple on Apple! Beatles and Badfinger fans await...
