The Beatles Come To iTunes, Fires Back

After what seemed like forever, the Beatles have finally made it to the Apple iTunes store. Starting today, you can download individual Beatles track for $1.29 each, buy an album for $12.99 to $14.99 or buy the remastered box set, which contains all the Beatles songs plus some extra stuff, for $149.

Not to be outdone, Amazon has fired back by lowering the price of their Beatles box set to the same as iTunes. Then a few hours later, they decided to lower the price by another $20. So instead of paying $149 for a downloaded Beatles box set, you can get the real thing for only $129.99 with free shipping.


I don’t know how long Amazon will be able to offer this without the Beatles getting on their case for discounting their music (and pissing off Apple). If you’re a Beatles fan and had always wanted that box set, now is the time to get it!
