We just announced that Apple has now made The Beatles available to download on iTunes, and although this is good news — it is not exactly going to be a day that I will never forget. I hate to be negative here, but I just think that Apple lost some of its credibility with a statement like that.
We had assumed that Apple would announce something huge, such as iTunes Cloud or even Apps for Apple TV, so you can see why I am left disappointed, and I am sure that I am not the only one?
Do not get me wrong, I love The Beatles, but I already have their CDs, and they are now stored in digital format on my external hard drive so I can create a new playlist on my iPhone as I please.
Did this news really deserve to take over the entire homepage of Apple? I can think of so many other things that Apple could have done with all that space. We all seem to be missing something here, what about iOS 4.2, what happened to that?
I am sorry, I am just going on a bit here, but you can see just how angry I am about this — I feel let down.
