Now Ringo's solo catalogue is on... this is madness!

If George's comes soon, holy schnikies.

I'd be far more excited about George's work. I'm getting All Things Must Pass soon.

New iPod speculation sends Apple shares up
By Connie Guglielmo and Crayton Harrison
Bloomberg News

Apple rose nearly 6 percent on speculation the company will debut new versions of the iPod media player, and that its iTunes store may start selling music from The Beatles

The company e-mailed invitations Tuesday to a Sept. 5 event called "The Beat Goes On." They show a silhouetted dancer carrying an iPod, with album covers in the background, suggesting Apple may debut new iPods, according to analysts including Goldman Sachs' David Bailey.

New iPods may prompt buyers to upgrade devices in the next two quarters, the analyst said in a report. The player accounted for almost a third of sales in the last quarter. The wording of the e-mail also suggests Apple may have reached a deal with The Beatles after ending decades of litigation this year, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster said.

"We expect Apple to launch several unreleased tracks and other special Beatles-related content," Munster said in a Wednesday report. "The beat goes on" were the final words used in The Beatles' last news release in 1970, a sign Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs may announce a deal for their music, said Munster, who rates the shares "outperform."

Apple shares soared 7.26 to close at $134.08.

In February, Apple resolved a legal dispute with The Beatles over rights to use the "Apple" name and logos, prompting analysts to speculate on a forthcoming deal to bring the Fab Four's music to iTunes.

The Beatles' catalog, which includes hits such as "A Hard Day's Night," "Something" and "Yesterday," isn't legally distributed on the Internet. While music giant EMI has rights to put the group's recordings on CDs and other physical formats, the Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd. hasn't granted digital rights to the songs.

Apple Corps is owned by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and the estate of George Harrison. McCartney said in May that a deal to offer the band's music online was "virtually settled." This year Apple added the solo catalogs of McCartney, Starr and Lennon to the iTunes store.

Jobs hasn't updated the iPod since last year's introduction of the $79 Shuffle. Apple has sold more than 100 million iPods since their debut in 2001. It's the best-selling digital media player in the U.S., with about a 70 percent share of the market, according to the NPD Group.

UBS analyst Benjamin Reitzes said he expects a new version of Apple's pencil-thin Nano with more storage and an update of the video iPod that includes the touch-screen display that debuted in the iPhone in June.

The iPhone combines a music and video player with a mobile handset and has a 3.5-inch color screen, compared with the 2.5-inch display Apple now offers on the video iPod.





Los Angeles (E! Online) - Apple just scored some instant karma with John Lennon fans.

The company's iTunes Store began selling the late Beatle's solo catalog on Tuesday, the first time Lennon's work has been available via the Internet's most popular digital download service.

Effective immediately, 16 of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's albums are available, including his landmark Plastic Ono Band, Imagine and Double Fantasy, as well as the compilation albums Lennon Legend, Acoustic, Anthology and Working Class Hero.

The entire catalog has been digitally remastered, and the tracks will be available in DRM-free format for $1.29 each.

As a bonus, exclusive videos will be bundled with several of the albums for the next month.

"John would have loved the fact that his music will now be available in a format suited to a new generation of listeners," Yoko Ono said in a statement.

"John Lennon is one of the greatest artists of our time," added Steve Jobs, Apple CEO and inveterate Beatlemaniac. "We're thrilled to have his solo catalog available on the iTunes Store for the first time."

With the addition of Lennon, three of the four Beatles have now made their way to iTunes. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr came aboard earlier this year, leaving George Harrison as the only one whose solo post-Beatles oeuvre is not represented. (Harrison's Traveling Wilburys music debuted in June.)

Last fall, Lennon's (and Harrison's) solo work was cleared for release on all major digital distributors except the biggest, Apple's iTunes—the computer company was embroiled in a legal battle with the Beatles' Apple Corps at the time. With that spat now resolved, it appears only a matter of time before all of the Fab Four's musical output is downloadable.

Indeed, McCartney and EMI have confirmed that the entire Beatles catalog is getting digitally remastered. Sources say the Beatles' tracks could be available on iTunes by the end of the year, although the launch may be pushed back to early 2008.

Cool, but new iPods are even cooler.
