Apple and Beatles along with their record label EMI Group has had several feuds in the past, which is why music from Beatles has not been available in the world’s largest music store as of yet.

The agreement would represent a watershed in a fraught, decades-long relationship between two of the biggest icons in their respective fields.

However, according to WSJ, Apple has finalized a deal with Beatles and the EMI Group to bring their songs to the iTunes store. WSJ has always been able to predict correctly as to what Apple will be announcing. However, don’t keep your fingers crossed on this unless you hear it from Steve Jobs himself.

  1. why are we supposed to care? anyone can go to the music store (or amazon.com), buy the CDs for the same price at a higher quality and rip them into iTunes at a decent bitrate. This is all hype. What I’d like to know is why are we STILL waiting for an update that will make the iPad actually usable. Sad.
