I read earlier this week that Apple are planning a big ad during the upcoming Super Bowl to announce the availability of The Beatles catalog on their iTunes Store. Big deal!
Is anyone else tired of the remaining Beatles cashing in all the time ? Doesn’t everyone who can rip or download MP3s already have at least one of their greatest hits albums, or that CD that has their entire catalog on 1 menu driven disc that was for sale underground a few years back ? Aren’t we tired of making wrinkly McCartney richer by the day? After that fucking awful “Love” album last Christmas I say boycott the money grabbing asshole and if you must, download elsewhere and dont part with a red cent!
And to Apple, come on! Wake up and smell what Microsoft is actually getting right with the Zune. It’s Zune Social site is higlighting lots of upcoming new acts, encouraging downloads of something different. What’s your next move?
