The Beatles are set to finally release their entire catalogue in digital format. What's more, all of those songs will be on an Apple.
Unfortunately for iTunes fans, that Apple will be from Apple Corps, not Apple Inc. The band's record label has finally settled its various legal wranglings and gotten around to putting the Beatles' complete catalogue in a single digital offering.
Instead of offering the albums for download, however, the label has instead opted to package every remastered album together with movies, photos and artwork into a single 16GB USB drive. The drive will be offered in the shape of an apple and will be limited to a run of 30,000 and will cost £200.00.
Okay, so it's a bit disappointing that the songs won't be available through iTunes or another music retail service, but at the same time that apple-shaped USB drive and the bundled video and artwork is pretty cool. While normally I'd laugh off the idea of selling music on a thumb drive as an idea best left in 2001, I wouldn't mind getting this Beatles collection come Christmas time.
