This week's leading rumour relates to The Beatles, with a report claiming the act will release music through iTunes, perhaps as soon as 14 February — Valentine's Day. Fortune magazine last year speculated a limited edition Beatles iPod may also emerge as part of this deal.
This deal for Apple may signal the start of a huge new demand by baby boomer's for music downloads. Apple has led the way with iTunes, the iPod and the iTunes music store. It would make perfect sense that Apple lead the charge with the exclusive down-loadable Beatles catalog. This will leave Apple competitors yelling... HELP! I need somebody, not just anybody. Maybe Led Zeppelin will oblige. Only tribute songs can be found today by Zep fans on iTunes.
