Beatles catalog now on iTunes


If you’ve been in the iTunes store this past week, you’ve probably seen the countdown clocks promising that today, November 16, 2010, would be just another day…that we’d never forget. Could this have heralded the long-hoped-for announcement of a Netflix-esque video streaming service? Maybe a revamp of the store system’s pricing? Or could it just be Steve Jobs finally landing The Beatles years after everybody just uploaded their CD copies of Let It Be?

If you picked door #3, you would be correct. As of this morning, the back catalog is available for purchase or download. It’s a little anticlimactic, but still pretty cool to see the last of the bands to not be available ready for purchase. Does it change much, though? I hate to say it, but not particularly.

For your health, “Let It Be”:
