Yesterday, Apple posted an enigmatic announcement concerning iTunes:

Fig. 1: Free songs? Porn? Sparkles? Is it sparkles?

Nope. The “unforgettable announcement” was that—wait for it—no, seriously, are you sitting down?—they were going to have The Beatles catalogue available on iTunes.

Pardon me for not giving a flying crap.

I know Steve Jobs isn’t necessarily the most hip cat out there, but if he and his yes-persons at Apple think that everyone still thinks The Beatles are the end-all, be-all of popular music, then he clearly hasn’t been bothering to see what sells on iTunes. As a commenter on AppleInsider said, “This is the most important music news of 2003.”

Edit: Oh, and I know that The Beatles are the biggest selling group of All Time and heaven and earth bow at their feet and baby boomers still scream their name during Cialis-induced sex and what not, but I still don’t care. When Apple says that there’s going to be some game-changing announcement, I expect a bit more than…The Beatles. Just sayin’.
