Here's a rumor I just received (remember, it's just a rumor):

Beatles iPod ???

http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/i-am-the-...log-277724.php

Hi there, Beatles haters. Please skip on down to the next post, and keep listening to that crappy music that will never measure up to the virtuosity and creativity of the musical entity that defined the 20th Century. Okay, now that they're gone, if you are wishful-thinking rumor hater, please leave too. Because this is what we have here—the next unlikely and reheated rumor in the saga of the Beatles and Apple: a Yellow Submarine-like iPod shipping soon with the entire Beatles catalog loaded on board.

This latest round of Beatles-on-iPod scuttlebutt comes from a music industry consultancy called Music Ally, which also somehow knows that this Yellow Submarine iPod will commemorate the date when all the Beatles tracks suddenly become available on iTunes. The prescient consultants add that all these Beatles songs will be exclusive to iTunes for a month before they're offered on any other music download services.

If that's the case, why would Apple offer an iPod with all the Beatles songs pre-loaded, probably at a deeply discounted price, rather than just selling a repainted collector's model and let the fans spend more money in the store? Just like they did with the U2 iPod, you get the fans to buy the special iPod and then let them buy the songs with a higher profit margin.

That said, we've been bamboozled by all these Beatles/Apple rumors so many times, we're not going to hold our breath waiting for this one. [Tech Digest, via CrunchGear]



I don't own the U2 one, nor would I go out and buy a new one to have the U2 one or the new one. But if I didn't own an iPod

If this actually comes out, with the remastered Beatles catalogue at about 300-350 for a 30 gig, there's no way I'm not buying this.

Sweet fancy Moses.

About 200 of them are essentials, and remastered???

Love made me go into Elaine-esque spasms because of the 5.1, imagine all of Sgt. Pepper or Revolver sounding like that.

Well, it's hard to imagine after your head's already exploded.

No, you have to account for all the songs released on the Anthology series, the BBC set, and other assorted rarities.

The official amount of released Beatles songs is more in the range of what LMP stated. A quick search on Google shows one site listing 336, for example.

If you go on RollingStone.com they have their versions of what other bands iPods might look like, pretty cool.

A Beatles iPod

I have had my U2 one for 2 1/2 years now...

I'm STILL waiting for my original U2 iPod to die to justify buying a new one. (That's not really a complaint, by the way - i can't believe it's still going strong!)

I'd buy a Beatles iPod.
