Coming soon to your iPod: the Beatles?

It seemed paradoxical that the Beatles’ company, Apple Corps, would sue Apple Computer for allegedly violating an agreement by using the Apple name and logo to sell music via iTunes. After all, how did that hurt the Beatles, who’ve been one of the last major holdouts from selling their music via download? Now, it turns out that the Beatles do plan to sell their songs online. Apple Corps chief Neil Aspinall testified in the current trial that he’s currently digitally remastering the entire catalog and will make it available in its entirety when he’s finished. An Apple Corps spokesperson tells Reuters there’s ”no firm date” when that might occur, but still, it’s good news for fans. Of course, when the Beatles finally do post their tracks online, they’ll probably do it at Rhapsody.

    Am I the only one who thinks the people representing the Beatles are a bunch of dorks?

    Dorks? No. Money grubbing low lifes who have nothing better to do then take on one of the most innovative companies in the world (when they arn’t screwing me and my buddy Dalton Ross out of getting our iPods fixed)? Yes.

    No talking sh-t about the Beatles. Not on my watch.
    Anyway, I can understand why the Beatles are mad. They made this Apple label back in the 60s, and they picked the Apple symbol, made an Apple store, etc. And fast forward 20 years or something, and then here comes this computer company named Apple. The Beatles say hey, we are using that name already, and then Apple computers say don’t worry, we won’t use it for music. Then fast forward another 20 years, and now we have Apple Itunes, which is absolutely using the name for music.
    Like, what if somebody started an ice cream company and wanted to name it Skippy, and agreed never to make peanut butter, and then came out with peanut butter?
    Okay maybe that was a bad analogy but I hope it made sense.

    I have always been a PC user, never have tried out a Mac but I am getting closer to getting one. Just wish the price of a Mac was cheap like that of a PC.
