Beatles coming to iTunes?
Apple Computer is close to inking a deal that would bring the Beatles music catalog online as an exclusive offer via the iTunes Music Store, according to Fortune Magazine. Talks between the two companies continue over the possibility of a new iPod commercial featuring Beatles music, as well as a potential Beatles-branded iPod similar to the special edition U2 model. EMI Group in mid-November announced that recordings of the Beatles would soon appear online, fueling speculation despite a recent legal battle between Apple Computer and Apple Corps that left the record label owing the Cupertino-based company roughly £2 million in legal fees.
