After what seemed like forever, the Beatles have finally made it to the Apple iTunes store. Starting today, you can download individual Beatles track for $1.29 each, buy an album for $12.99 to $14.99 or buy the remastered box set, which contains all the Beatles songs plus some extra stuff, for $149.
Not to be outdone, Amazon has fired back by lowering the price of their Beatles box set to the same as iTunes. Then a few hours later, they decided to lower the price by another $20. So instead of paying $149 for a downloaded Beatles box set, you can get the real thing for only $129.99 with free shipping.
I don’t know how long Amazon will be able to offer this without the Beatles getting on their case for discounting their music (and pissing off Apple). If you’re a Beatles fan and had always wanted that box set, now is the time to get it!
