The news fell a little earlier today. The Beatles are now available on iTunes. Hippie! Yippie! Looking at the comments on our post about it, and also at people’s reaction on Twitter, I sense that most of you aren’t really happy about this.

To me, as a consumer, it’s a big disappointment. I understand it’s a big deal for the music industry but who cares? We’re not music industry execs.

I never sat down and said to myself “gosh I wish the Beatles were on iTunes”. No, I just inserted every Beatles’ CD in my computer years ago and digitalized all of them. Done. I never thought about it again.

But this news is not just about me. It’s about all of us, so let’s see what you have to say…

Please take a few seconds to take this poll and tell us how you feel about today’s big news that the Beatles are finally on iTunes.

    Option 4? Glad they finally have the catalog, but don’t really care in the long run because I already have it.

  • AppleBits

    Pointless. Like you, I burned my CD’s to iTunes a long time ago. Overkill on drama.

  • rizo g

  • Wow.. Twitter reflected a lot of people were upset or dissatisfied with the announcement this morning, but I wouldn’t have guessed the ratio would lean that far. Interesting.

  • Weebsurfer

    None of the above. Don’t give a flying coo coo ka choo about beatles on iTunes. And the cloud will just put us in a situation where news like this actually does matter!!! The cloud will also lead to companies like Rogers lowering bandwidth caps even further and screwing us for all we got. I like the idea of my data available anywhere but as it stands now, it won’t be. Out of your cell area, too bad, can’t listen to the Beatles here!

  • AppleBits

    Haha C’mon. We’re all nerds on a forum like this or Twitter. Probably very few are hippies! And if they ARE hippie geeks, they already have all this music, making this news ultra boring. The “geeks only” don’t give a rat’s behind- all they need is an iOS update! No wonder this is such a huge dissapointment!

  • Kerry

    This was a joke! Come on Steve, we’ll never forget this because the announcement is your biggest bust!

  • Bino

    Option 27:i dont give a FUCK.fucking beatles ruined my fucking day.i hope itunes crashes everytime someone buys their fucking album. That sounds about right

  • Martin

    Today was just another day. That i’ll forget.

  • Rob

    Blatently A Distraction Conncuted So They Have More Time Too Push Out iOS4.2 Cmon Apple, We’ve Waited Long Enough
