The Beatles with iPods

According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple is set to announce that they've worked out an agreement to offer the entire Beatles catalog on its iTunes Store -- something Apple has been negotiating for what seems like the better half of a decade. WSJ reports:

Apple Inc. is preparing to announce that its iTunes Store will soon start carrying music by the Beatles, according to people familiar with the situation, a move that would fill in a glaring gap in the collection of the world's largest music retailer.

iTunes launched almost 8 years ago, and The Beatles have been regrettably absent since day one. Spokesmen for Apple, BMI and The Beatles of course declined to comment on the matter. We have a feeling that, if there's any truth to these new rumors, there should be a lot of happy iTunes users out there who are also fans of The Beatles (and who isn't, right?).

So will you be purchasing any Beatles music once they're finally available through iTunes? Let us know in the comments!
