iTunes ad with McCartney
Apple has launched yet another iTunes ad (scroll down and click 'play') on US television -- this time featuring former Beatle Paul McCartney. 'Macca' appears in the advertisement to sing Dance Tonight, the title track from his latest album Memory Almost Full and features pastel backgrounds with a non-silhouetted McCartney singing and dancing along a traditional English street, according to Macworld UK. While reports have surfaced that indicated that bringing the Beatles music to iTunes was "virtually settled," fans may have to wait until 2008, according to Olivia Harrison, the widow of late guitarist/singer/songwriter George Harrison. Despite the landmark settlement of a trademark dispute that dates back to Apple Inc. (then Apple Computer Inc.'s) inception, Harrison said that a few things still needed to be worked out elsewhere before the music will be available for digital download and purchase.
